Unfortunately, children fall from windows in homes and apartments. The threat is real. These tragedies can lead to severe and permanent brain injuries, broken bones or death.
This can happen when a child is playing near an open window. It can also happen if a landlord does not fix old rotting windows or if new windows are not properly installed.
Inspect the windows your home. Do a quick survey of all rooms to see whether there is any furniture, such as a bed, dresser, table or couch, situated next to an open window onto which a small child could climb.
If an injury has occurred, call the Florida child injury lawyers at Haliczer Pettis & Schwamm today.
