Every year, three are over 8 million slip-and-fall accidents in North America; over 540,000 of these results in injuries requiring hospital care. Approximately 300,000 of these falls result in disabling injuries. In hotels, restaurants and public buildings, slip-and-fall accidents are the number one cause of accidents – two out of three fall deaths occur in the home and our older population is most vulnerable. Just over 70% of these falls occur on flat, level surfaces. Slip-and-fall accidents account for over 20,000 fatalities per year in North America – that is 55 persons killed per day from slip-and-fall accidents! The next fall could be you, one of your family members or an employee or customer of your company.
Beyond the human toll caused by slip-and-fall accidents, there is a financial toll that should be the concern of every homeowner and business owner. Every year in North America, there are 104 million lost work days – that’s over 4,000 lost worker lifetimes! Social burdens related to slip-and-fall injuries are tremendous. Of all Workers’ Compensation claims, 40% are slip-and-fall claims. Worker’s Compensation and Liability Insurance Rates are increasing an average of 30% per year. WHEN YOU ADD UP EVERYTHING, SLIP-AND FALL ACCIDENTS ARE A $36 BILLION PROBLEM FOR NORTH AMERICA EVERY YEAR. So even if you have not been injured as the result of a slip-and-fall accident yourself, you are impacted by the burden placed on society in the form of higher insurance rates and higher costs for products and services.
