What can go wrong in a health class, right? Ask Kylie Nielson from Kaysville, Utah who broke her ankle while wearing “drunk goggles” – a simulation aimed at teaching kids about the dangers of alcohol abuse. She broke her ankle in multiple places after getting her foot stuck under a desk during the simulation.
Slip and fall personal injury cases are very familiar to our practice. Recently, statistical data was released by the Arbill workplace safety services provider and the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) in regards to slip and fall accidents. In fact, around 1.8 million Americans suffer injuries from slips, trips, and falls per year, most of which are citizens over the age of 65 years of age. It is estimated that costs due to slips, trips, and falls amounts to $70 Billion per year including both compensation and medical costs.
