Personal injury can happen in the most unexpected ways. Many could imagine being injured in a car accident or possibly at work, but most never imagine that they could walk onto a person or company's property and be injured there. Property owners have a duty of care to those who visit their property - especially business owners. Failure to uphold a certain level of care can mean a person could seek damages for injuries rendered.
Many schools and child care centers devote large rooms to multiple purposes, including cafeteria and gymnasiums. These multi-use rooms often have large pieces of folding equipment attached to their walls. Most such equipment has reliable devices for holding them in place, but the failure of a hook or clamp can have disastrous results. An early childhood center in Poplar Bluff was the scene of such an accident on February 1, 2019 when a large table fell on and killed a four-year-old student.
