A young child has fallen from a third-story window.  The accident occurred at the South Side Works Flats of Pittsburgh.

When police arrived, the child’s parents had already taken the child to the hospital.

The three-year old child is in stable condition after the accident.

It has not been released as to how the incident occurred. 

Recovering compensation after a fall.

Injuries that can occur when an individual falls from a window are broken bones, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries to name a few.  Window falls can be deadly.  These types of accidents can affect your quality of life forever.  That is why it is important to pursue a premise liability claim to recover the damages you sustained if your accident was caused by someone else’s negligence. 

Most of the time, a fall from a window will occur at hotels, apartment complexes, office buildings and homes. It is the property owner’s responsibility to keep their premises safe.  This includes the maintenance of all windows and making sure they meet and stay up to date with local codes.

If the owner of the property failed to maintain, take appropriate precautions or fix a known problem that contributed to the fall, a personal injury claim may be pursued.  If you or someone you know were injured in a fall related accident, contact the personal injury attorneys at Berger and Green at 412-661-1400 for a free no obligation consultation.
