According to World Health Organization (WHO) statistics, falls are the second leading cause of unintentional injury deaths worldwide, accounting for approximately 684,000 deaths per year.
In the case of the United States, this type of accident tends to increase in seasons when conditions lend themselves to people suffering slips and falls that can become very serious, such as in the winter or spring seasons.
According to statistics from the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI), falls are the cause of approximately 1 million injuries a year in this country, most of which are treated in emergency rooms due to their severity.
