A three-year-old boy suffered a serious head injury and possible broken arm after he fell from a second-story apartment window in City Heights on September 23. According to San Diego Police officers, the child was playing on top of a desk when he leaned towards the window to look down at other kids who were playing below and fell from the window.
The child was conscious and breathing when the authorities arrived. Our hearts go out to the child and his family and best wishes for a healthy recovery from the fall accident.
In every child injury accident case, the preliminary investigation should be focused on whether the child or a third party contributed to the accident. A detailed investigation will surely help the investigating officers determine the exact cause and find out who was at fault.
The injured child’s parents need to immediately get in touch with an experienced personal injury lawyer who would establish a way to help the child get the required medical treatment without any delay. If it is found in the investigation that carelessness of a third party contributed to this serious accident, then the injured child’s parents may be eligible to obtain a legal compensation to cover treatment costs.
Apartment accidents, such as fall injuries, can usually occur due to inadequate hand rails, poor lighting, and unsafe balconies. Most of these falling accidents result in broken bones, brain damage, and even death. Sometimes unaware, parents do have a legal right to seek the advice of a lawyer to help cover for any suffered losses.
