Brain Injuries from Being Struck by an Object
If a person's head is struck by some object, for example a pipe that falls from a construction site or a piece of ceiling tile, it can cause brain damage if the force of the falling object is significant. The force of the object depends upon the weight of the object, the speed of the object and/or the height from which the object fell.
Our office has represented individuals who sustained by brain damage from a safety rail that fell 118 feet; ceiling tile that fell from ten feet; a ceiling board that fell about ten feet; a window pane that fell approximately eight feet, among others.
Our office, working with brain injury experts, presents evidence of about the force of these fallen objects and how the impact may cause the individual to sustain a brain injury.
