Better Safe than Sorry: 5 Precautions to Take after a Fall

Ever found yourself falling flat on your face? Here are tips to heed to ensure you either avoid injury or make sure any you sustain aren't worsened. By Stephanie Castillo

article_safety-tips-after-fall.jpgWhen we trip and fall, our most common reaction is to laugh about the embarrassing situation and just brush it all off.
