Stay Safe While Walking In the Winter

Are you staying safe while venturing outside this winter?  Chances are, you've run into at least one instance in which your feet did not feel solid on the cold, icy winter ground.  According to a recent article by the Detroit News, you are not alone.  They gathered statistics from the Accident Fund Insurance, which is a Midwestern company that handles many workers' compensation claims.  They reported that compared to 2012-2013, the number of winter slip-and-fall claims doubled in 2013-2014.  For the Midwest, that means that about 33% of all workers' compensation claims were accounted for by slip-and-fall events.  In many states that receive significant snow in the winter months, such as our home state of Pennsylvania, the numbers are most likely very similar.  

Slip-And-Fall Tips For This Winter

Be safe in the winter weather!  Unfortunately for people living in Pennsylvania during the winter season, along with the beautiful snowy landscapes come a variety of winter-related dangers. One of the most common injuries during this time of year, especially in older adults, are slip-and-fall accidents.    How can you protect yourself?  Try and following the guidelines below, courtesy of Denver Health.
