Your cellphone may be to blame!
When you think of someone falling and being injured at home – a senior citizen probably comes to mind. Well, younger adults are just as likely to be trip-and-fall victims – thanks to our cellphones! We’re all so busy looking down at our phones that we’re falling down the stairs, tripping over the cat, and slipping on throw rugs. In fact, over half of all walking-and-talking cellphone accidents happen at home! That’s according to the University of Maryland. And 1‑in‑5 at-home cellphone-related falls causes a concussion! So if you’re not going to watch your step – at least clear a path in the most used areas – like between the couch and the kitchen. So you don't wind up breaking your neck.
