Common Falling Accidents

Of all the accidents that people suffer from, falling down might be one of the most common. Although many times, falls are the result of our own missteps, there are also many times when someone else’s actions or negligence result in a person falling and harming themselves. In fact, in many people in Nashville are subjected to the negligence of others, causing them to fall and sustain serious injuries, something which our team at Pohl & Berk, LLP, understands can cause a range of related problems.

Negligent Causes of Falling Accidents

Although you may initially think that a fall that you recently suffered is not someone else’s responsibility, there are times when it actually could be. For instance, the following represent common occasions in which another person might be held responsible for a falling accident:

  • Poorly designed scaffolding
  • Overcrowding on a stage or stadium
  • Slippery public walking surface
  • Uneven pavement not being repaired
  • Physical altercations of which you are not the instigator

In these cases, the injuries that a person sustains in a fall are not always one’s own fault, but, in fact, could be the fault of another person. If this is the case, then you might actually be owed compensation from the person responsible.
