    FALLS HAPPEN TO PEOPLE OF ALL AGES, NOT JUST THE ELDERLY

    For those of us of a certain age, we are watching our parents and our friend’s parents grow old, and for too many of them, falls and broken bones are a part of the aging process.

    However, people of any age can fall and be injured. Sure, sometimes we trip over our own two feet, but most of the time, it is because there is a hazard that has either been built-in as a design flaw, or has been overlooked, or has been allowed to exist and grow, because the owner of the property, whether it is a store, a manhole cover, a pothole, thinks it just too much trouble to fix. Perhaps it is because of ice in a store’s parking lot when the owner cannot be bothered to put salt down.

    The injuries may just be a bump or a bruise. However, bones can break, concussions can happen, and in the case of the elderly, a cascade of physical problems can result after a fracture, particularly a hip fracture. This is where a lawyer is needed to hold those responsible to account, to make them compensate the people their carelessness has injured.
