Pasco County Premises Liability Injury Attorney :: Falling Objects Can Lead to Serious Dade City Injuries

Falling objects are not something we are always looking out for, so when this type of accident occurs it is usually unexpected and often serious. Falling objects account for a large number of injuries throughout Pasco County and the rest of Florida. Whether you are strolling down the street, perusing the shelves of a grocery store, walking near a construction site or anywhere else, an object can fall and hit you, which can ultimately cause you to suffer from a painful injury.

A falling object can strike you anywhere at any time. However, there are many places where your odds of being hit by a falling object are increased, including:

Retail Stores: Retailers that sell various items may not place larger, heavier items properly on store shelves. When these items fall, they can cause great injury to store shoppers.

Construction sites: Construction zones have regulations and requirements that all workers must meet when it comes to securing materials and tools. When these standards are not met, objects can fall and deliver catastrophic injuries to other workers and unsuspecting individuals walking by.

Buildings: Improperly maintained buildings can result in shingles, bricks and other materials falling and make contact with cars and people nearby.

Beds of trucks: When objects are not loaded or secured properly on the back of a truck, items can fly off and strike cars and pedestrians in the nearby area.

Premises liability

When an object falls from a distance, the most common place for it to hit a person is the head, face, shoulders or back. Depending on the type of object and its force, it can cause a pretty serious personal injury. Some common injuries from falling objects include:

  • Skull fractures
  • Concussion
  • Open Head Wounds
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Spinal Cord Trauma
  • Broken Nose
  • Eye Injuries
  • Facial Fractures
  • Facial disfigurement
  • Lacerations
  • Neck Injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Shoulder Dislocations or Fractures
  • Upper Back Injuries

Under Florida premises liability laws, business and property owners have a duty to keep their buildings safe and secure for all visitors. When this does not happen, injured victims have the right to recover financial compensation for their losses. With the help of a personal injury lawyer, you can file a personal injury claim to recover monetary compensation for your physical injuries and emotional distress.
