We have all done it at some point in our lives, casually going about our business when some unexpected obstacle seems to just materialize right in our path, causing us to trip or slip and fall down. In many cases, it simply is embarrassing, particularly when an accidental fall happens in public. Shockingly, slip, trip and fall accidents are among the most deadly type of preventable accident worldwide. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that slips, trips and falls are the second most common cause of preventable death world wide, killing over 646,000 people annually.Slip and fall and trip and fall accidents do not just happen. While it often seems like our own fault when we fall, and many of us do not want to blame someone else for our perceived carelessness, it is of paramount importance to realize that if one person encounters a situation that causes a fall, the likelihood another person will have an accident in the same situation is drastically more likely. Failing to report an accidental slip, trip or fall because of embarrassment or because no injury happened is extremely common.
