Falls leading cause of death for over 65

Falls causing injury or death to senior citizens are far too common according to this article from the Washington Times: Accidental falls a leading cause of death over 65. Having handled numerous slip, trip & fall cases involving senior citizens, I was unfortunately well aware of the risk. Many of these cases involved hip fractures that resulted in hospitalization and temporary or permanent nursing home stays as well as permanent disability. Others, sadly involved wrongful death.
