Slip and fall accidents are common occurrences that can happen anywhere. While visiting both commercial and residential properties, Camrose residents could slip on an unnoticed, seemingly innocent maintenance hazard and sustain serious injuries as a result.
Senior citizens are among those most susceptible to serious or life-threatening injuries as the result of a slip and fall accident. Indeed, adults over the age of 65 are 9 times more likely to be involved in a falling accident than younger accident victims. They are also more likely to be hospitalized or admitted to long-term care facilities because of the injuries they have sustained by slipping and falling.
Regardless of age, the injuries sustained in serious slip and fall accidents can have long-lasting effects on an individual’s quality of life. As a result of the injuries they have sustained, accident survivors could face physical challenges, emotional difficulties, and financial hardships for weeks, months, or even years following their falls.
