So, you slipped and fell.
Many people may instinctively try and get back up immediately, especially if the fall was in a public place. Falls often feel embarrassing, and your initial thoughts may be about getting out of there and putting the looks and laughter from others behind you… even if there really isn’t any.
Unfortunately, this is one of the worst things that you can do. Why? Because in some cases slip and falls can result in very serious injuries. Fractures. Concussions. Musculoskeletal trauma.
Forcing yourself up and onward can cause further damage. Just as importantly, if you flee the scene of your slip and fall accident, you may not be able to receive compensation for your injuries.
