    “Although the concept that slippery footing increases your risk of falling isn’t new, what we’ve been able to show is that these dangerous conditions result in more fractures in this already vulnerable population of adults,”

    Are you kidding me? Not new? How about common sense people? We needed a study for this kind of BS information?

    Wow – how much did this study cost and where did the money come from? Here’s a news flash, if it snowed last night, or there was freezing rain last night, guess what? Conditions exist for slip and falls. Seriously…what a waste.

    This is exactly the type of pro-active analysis that is needed to reduce and manage risks. Using analytics that combine data from differenct sources to create a new index that can predict when there is a higher degree of risk is to be encouraged by insureres, especially when the insureds initiate the activity. It shows “engagement” in the risk control process. Reducing risk is prime in helping to conltol claims cost. This study will pay for itself many times over.
