Catastrophic Injuries Caused by Falls on Dangerous Property
Unfortunately, there is a wealth of data documenting just how serious fall injuries are in the United States. The CDC reports that 3 million older Americans are treated by emergency departments after falling each year, and 800,000 people are subsequently hospitalized.
Some of the most common injuries caused by falls include:
- Brain injuries, including traumatic brain injury (TBI) and internal bleeding
- Broken extremity bones, like ankles, wrists, arms, and legs
- Broken hips, often requiring reconstructive surgery and extensive rehabilitation
These injuries require expensive treatments and long recovery times. They can also result in a lifelong reduction in quality of life and a limited ability to work.
