Child Injuries and Deaths due to unstable furniture

Child Injuries and Deaths Due to Unstable Furniture Most parents want to keep their child safe.  However, many forget to fully secure their homes.  This exposes their children to the danger of unstable furniture.  The fix for this problem is simple.  Parents of small children should anchor potentially unstable to the wall to prevent tipping of falling.  Having represented individuals who have lost a young child due being struck by unstable furniture, the dangers here cannot be overstated.

Slip and Fall Lawyer Deltona, FL

Slip and Fall or Trip and Fall Law Slip and fall and trip and falls are some of the most common injuries claims after motor vehicle crashes.  The reason an injured person fell is usually not because they forgot how to walk.  Rather, many dangerous conditions can cause someone to fall.  Examples include elevated or cracked sidewalks or food or liquid on the floor.  Most of us have also encountered the ultra slippery-when-wet paint in a crosswalk.
