What You Need to Know About Slip and Fall Injuries

Even though they might sound insignificant, so-called “slip and fall” injuries are not only common, but they can lead to substantial problems for those who are hurt as a result.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 17,000 people die, and more than one million people suffer injuries because of slips and fall accidents every year.
