The majority of the time, slip and falls aren’t serious. You may put your foot down on a wet floor at a supermarket or trip on a broken part of the sidewalk and stumble or perhaps fall down. You get up, dust yourself off and maybe deal with a small bruise and a bit of embarrassment. Unfortunately, some slip and fall events can be much more serious. Slip and fall injuries include sprains, broken bones, back injuries, traumatic brain injuries and even death.
