This massive amount crowds tends to a lot of chaos in stores leading to injuries during Black Friday shopping. As one prepares for a night of great deals and long lines it is best that you prepare yourself in order to keep you and your loved ones safe.
Avoid Slip & Fall Injuries
As millions of people descend on the stores this holiday season its important to be careful and pay attention to your surroundings. While many store employees will be assisting customers and restocking shelves they might be lacking one important task of their job, and that is make sure the store is safe. Most slip and fall injuries you are likely to suffer from one of the following:
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Broken Hip
- Shoulder and Neck Injury
- Broken Arms or Legs
- Sprains or Tears of Ligaments
While these are just a few of the most common injuries of a slip and fall there are many others that are possible. If you do suffer from a slip and fall be sure to report to a store manager, get an incident report, seek medical treatment, and then call a personal injury attorney.
