Injuries Sustained In A Workplace Slip & Fall
Slip and fall accidents that occur in the work arena can result in a number of injuries. Some are minimal and result in no lost time from work and others are more severe and can take extended periods of time to recover from a physical, emotional and financial standpoint. Some less severe injuries can be soft tissue injuries such as cuts, scrapes & bruises. Sprains, strains and fractures, especially to the arms and shoulders are commonly seen in slip and fall accidents due to extending the arms in an attempt to break the fall. More severe injuries involve head, neck & back injuries and they may take much longer to recover from. Extreme cases of slips and falls, particularly those from high places, can end in paralysis or death.
