Law Firm Releases Slip and Fall Accident Informational Graphic to Show the Frequency and Cost of These Incidents
Date:5/22/2013

older adults cost the U.S. health care system over $19 billion (iv). Furthermore, according to the CDC in 2005, close to 16,000 people over the age of 65 died as a result of a fall, and approximately 1.8 million people 65 and older were treated in an emergency room after a fall (v). These statistics reveal that as the population ages, the risk and severity of slip and fall accidents escalates.

Falls at work can be equally common place, as evidenced by the NSC’s 2003 release of “Injury Facts” which indicated that compensation and medical costs associated with employee slip and falls is approximately $70 billion annually (v). In 2011, the fifth edition of Industrial Safety and Occupational Markets reported that 85% of workers’ compensation claims are attributed to employees slipping on slick floors (v). To learn more about these types of incidents, take a look at the slip and fall infographic on our slip and fall webpage.
