It’s never a cartoon-like scene. There’s actually nothing funny about it. When you are injured by a falling object, the outcomes can be serious, dangerous…and often incredibly unfair.
(Stop! Before you read on, if you have been injured by a falling object, make sure you take photos of everything. Any visible injuries, the accident site itself, absolutely anything that might be connected to your accident. Because – if your case ends up going to court – you’re going to want to have as much physical and visual evidence on your side as possible.
Too many people ‘feel fine’ right after the incident but days later start to experience painful effects. By then, the area would have been cleaned up and the wounds have begun to heal. Document everything. Right away!)
