Holding a young childThe lives of injury victims are always important to us here at Chanfrau & Chanfrau. We have helped countless families affected by serious accidents through the greater Daytona Beach area. This focus on clients is especially helpful in lawsuits over child injuries and accidents.

Some of the most serious injuries that can be experienced involve serious trauma to the head. Let's take a moment to consider how falling objects can cause serious harm to children.

The Dangers of Falling Objects

Falling object pose so many dangers to people regardless of age. A heavy object that drops on the head can cause major trauma, including concussions, open head injuries, contusions, and much more. Brian injuries can have long-lasting repercussions that affect your memory, mood, cognitive abilities, and even your motor skills.

Falling objects might be found at local stores or businesses, or they could be the result of construction and unsecured building materials at work sites. Whatever the case may be, falling objects always have to be taken seriously.

Children Face Added Dangers from These Accidents

When a falling object strikes a child, the results can be tragic. Children are much smaller and still growing, and if the victim of the accident is a toddler or younger, they are far more vulnerable to severe injuries. Something as minor as a can on a shelf or items stacked high in a store display are much more dangerous when a small child is harmed in an accident. There's a chance that being struck or crushed by these objects may prove fatal.

If a child suffers from a serious head injury from a falling object, it can lead to years and years of problems with mental development. This can set back the child's progress with regard to growth, education, and physical development. A child's life can literally be changed forever.

Even if an object does not strike a child in the head, the injuries can be severe. This is especially true when the objects are large and cause broken bones or serious damage to muscles and tendons.

Safety Must Be Key at Businesses and Properties

Given the risks of injury to bystanders, customers, and visitors, it is of the utmost importance that all business and property owners renew their commitment to safety for everyone at the premises. Displays should be secure and properly stacked to minimize risk of toppling. At work sites, great care must be taken to prevent objects from falling where they may harm pedestrians and non-workers. Common sense safety can save lives.

Parents Should Remain Attentive

While business and property owners need to keep everyone safe, this is a renewed call for parents and guardians to be attentive whenever they are with a child. Make sure the child is in view whenever possible, and that they are kept away from potential hazards. Just keeping an eye out for your child can mean a lot when it comes to overall safety.
