Distracted Walking: Slip and Fall Accidents

Distracted Walking: Slip and Fall Accidents

Our practice has seen a fairly marked increase in the number of slip and fall accidents in the past few years. One of the main reasons for this is something we like to refer to as “distracted walking”. Just as with distracted driving, the individual goes along looking down at their phone instead of where they’re going. This can easily result in a nasty accident.

You may wake up with a sore back and neck, barely able to get out of bed. What most people do is take a handful of over-the-counter painkillers and go on with their day. Within a few days you won’t even be able to walk and this is when most...
