No one is above an embarrassing trip or slip and fall. Sometimes these are merely stumbles from which we brush ourselves off and walk away with little concern other than the possibility that someone may have seen our blooper. Sometimes these trips or slips are no one else’s fault but our own. But all too often, neither of these is the case. Falls in seemingly mundane places can result in serious injury or even death. Falls are also commonly the fault of someone else’s carelessness, rather than the person who fell.
