As part of our Dirty Facts blog post series, below are the latest research findings and statistics related to the impact of slips and falls on the health of your employees, customers and others.

Expense

  • The average slip-and-fall claim is $4,000 (NFSI)
  • The average cost of a slip-related injury exceeds $12,000 (Wausau Insurance Co.)
  • The average cost to defend against a slip-and-fall lawsuit is $50,000 (NFSI)
  • Fall-related medical expenses cost Americans more than $20 billion each year; projections show these expenses will climb to more than $32 billion over the next 20 years (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
  • For every dollar spent on floor maintenance products, the average supermarket will spend $3 paying for slip and fall accidents (NFSI)
  • Preventing workplace injuries makes it easier for a company to reach its financial goals. For example, a company with $100,000 of costs related to workplace injuries will have to produce an additional $2 million in revenue just to cover the expense, assuming a 5% profit margin. (Liberty Mutual)
