Slip and Slide: The Winter Edition

Most people don’t realize that something as simple as a slip and fall injury can lead to serious problems and losses! Here are some quick statistics to illustrate: The average cost of a slip and fall accident is $30,000 to $40,000, and slip and falls are a leading cause of injury for all age groups, especially adults over the age of 65. In fact, more than one million people go to the ER each year as a result of a slip and fall accident! The most common cause of brain injury is actually fall accidents. In addition, slip and fall victims miss an average of 11 work days while recovering.
Most slip and fall accidents are avoidable, so make sure to do your part to be careful. Watch out for black ice and ice covered by a thin layer of snow. Such conditions increase the risk of injury. However, accidents are almost always unexpected, so all of us are at risk no matter how careful we may be. If you do get hurt in a slip and fall incident, call TDLS at 435-593-1235 for a free consultation. We will help evaluate your claim and discuss what your options for compensation may be. If you are hurt at work as a result of a slip and fall accident, be sure to notify your employer and the Utah Labor Commission immediately. Take a photo of the icy location where you were injured, then go to WorkMed or whatever other provider your employer specifies. Accidents happen, and too often people unknowingly make things worse on themselves than need be. You deserve to know about all your options, so call now to learn more.
