Lawsuits Involving Slip Trip and Fall Injuries
In Omaha, Nebraska
Mar 16, 2010
When you’re young, you fall and trip quite often. Some doctors theorize that this is because, as a child, we’re constantly growing and we are changing, which shifts our center of balance and makes it difficult to be able to do much without tripping and falling. When we’re young, our bodies are actually generally conditioned very well to take falls and slips, and children who fall are much less likely to get injured than most parents believe. As we get older, however, falls and slips are much more likely to injure a person. At that point, the bones have stopped growing, and may be more brittle, and you may be in worse shape as an adult than you were as a child. Every adult who has fallen at one point in time remarks that the ground is much farther away as an adult than it was as a child!
