Why You Should Always Report a Slip & Fall!
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the major causes of death and disability in the United States. Slip & falls are the leading cause of TBI, accounting for 40% of TBIs in the United States.
More than half of TBIs among children 0 to 14 years are caused by falls, while more than 80% of TBIs in adults aged 65 and older are caused by falls. Often times, the effects of TBIs won’t present themselves immediately following an accident. It is important to ALWAYS seek medical attention following an accident and to file a report if the incident occurred on a commercial property.
