Though motor vehicle accidents are among the leading threats that present a significant risk of death and injury to people in the US, data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveals other, unexpected hazards: Slips, trips, and falls because of dangerous conditions on property. For each of the 10 age groups listed, the top two reasons that people visited hospital emergency rooms in 2017 were unintentional falls and being struck by an object. Together, these issues caused injuries to 12.2 million individuals. While the exact underlying factors may vary, the statistics show that property owners need to increase efforts to make their premises safe for those who enter.
