Injuries from slipping on ice

I'm sorry, but I really couldn't figure out how to make this into a Google inquiry. Say a Californian lawyer (possibly Lilah Morgan) is on a business trip back East in the Winter and is wearing her usual elegant office pumps, and slips on the ice and falls. What sort of injuries might she sustain? (I'm not talking major and life-threatening--rather, sprains, fractures, stuff like that.) How long might such injuries keep her hospitalized? Is there any reason, upon being discharged from the hospital, she might be advised to wait a few days before flying home (in sufficiently luxurious quarters of course)? (This question is less important; I can always conjure up a snow and ice-induced airport shutdown.)

TIA!
