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.
