Slip and fall accidents are a serious threat to your health, especially if you’re older or have an existing back or neck injury. Rushing across the ice is a certain way to end up on your backside. Take some additional time to plan your journey’s safest route. If you see ice in the path, attempt to navigate around it. If walking over ice is unavoidable, take it slowly and bend slightly forward while stepping or shuffle your feet for greater stability.It’s easy for people to underestimate the risk of slip and fall injuries in winter conditions, but it happens all too often. One out of three hospital visits during the winter season is due to slip and fall on ice. If you’ve been injured in a slip-and-fall accident this winter, call Dr William Capicotto MD today at (716) 881-0382.
