High School Student Sustains Injuries After Falling Three Floors
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A 17-year-old Houston high school student was
injured when he fell from a third story hallway. The victim was attending dual
credit classes at a local college when he went over the railing and fell
into an atrium. The victim’s injuries are serious, but he was awake
when an ambulance arrived. He was taken to a local hospital to be treated
for his injuries. An official investigation will be performed.
Each year, over 800,000 individuals are hospitalized due to fall injuries.
Most often these hospitalizations are due to head injuries or hip fractures
sustained in a fall. Scarily, one out of five falls causes a serious injury.
These injuries can be minor, but some can make it hard for the victim
to perform day to day activities. Broken bones, concussions, fractures,
and fear, are a few of the injuries and ailments that can keep victims
from their daily activities. It is necessary to contact a personal injury
attorney after a fall. Often, victims are left with substantial medical
bills, lost time from work and stress after a fall. An experienced attorney
will start the legal process and pursue maximum compensation while obtaining
a fair settlement.
