Where Do Falling Object Accidents Occur?
Falling objects can occur in a wide variety of settings. Falling objects have become increasingly common in retail settings, as stores stack products and boxes higher and higher. They are also common in warehouses, where stacks of boxes and pallets are constantly being moved from place to place with forklifts. This type of injury is also a frequent occurrence at construction sites. Crew members may fail to return tools and other objects to their proper locations.
Falling objects can cause serious, life-threatening, and even fatal injuries.
Warehouses and construction sites are typical areas where individuals are injured by falling objects, such as boxes.
Falling objects are commonly the result of a negligent employee. Stacking boxes too high, making them unstable, improper use of a forklift, or a failure to return tools and other items to their designated locations can all result in serious injury. When such an injury occurs, it is important to work with a skilled attorney who will gather the necessary evidence against the responsible party.
What are the Potential Damages from Falling Object Injuries?
Falling objects can cause serious, life-threatening, and even fatal injuries. A falling object may cause:
- Head and/or brain injuries that may include a concussion, lacerations, and traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Neck, back, and spinal cord injuries that can result in paralysis
- Broken bones and crushed limbs, requiring extensive surgery
Serious injuries are likely to result in extended hospital stays. In most cases, some form of therapy is also a necessary component of recovery. If you suffered paralysis, you may need to purchase a wheelchair and modify your home and/or vehicle to accommodate your wheelchair. In addition, your injury is likely to keep you away from work, and may even prevent you from returning to work permanently.
