As the winter approaches, the chances of slip and falls begin to increase drastically. Slipping and falling on ice is never fun, and it often hurts. Not only can it feel embarrassing, the pain also tends to linger and cause aches. If you’ve fallen on ice, here are three simple steps you should take.
- If possible, try to stand up and move around. Determine what injuries, if any, have occurred. Make sure all of your injuries are documented- take photographs and keep a record.
- Seek Medical Attention. Oftentimes, slip and fall accidents can lead to fractures, bruises, back injuries, and spinal cord injuries.
