As an older American, you may be prone to suffering serious injury after a relatively small accident, even though a similar accident may cause only nominal harm to a younger person. This  is particularly true when it comes to slips and falls. AgingCare.com reports that one in three seniors falls at least once a year, and that slips and falls are the single-largest cause of hospital admissions, injuries and fatalities among older Americans.
