Child Injured After 40-Foot Fall from Apartment in Addison, TX

According to recent news reports from Addison Texas a four-year-old girl suffered injury after falling 40-feet from the fifth floor of the Savoye at Vitruvian Park apartments. The injury accident happened around 8:33 p.m. on Sunday Feb. 20. She was transported by helicopter to Childrens Medical Center in Dallas and was last listed in critical condition. The childs mother has been identified as Lisa Bell. Police said that foul play was not suspected.

When a serious accident resulting in injury to a child occurs while a child is at an apartment complex a number of issues may play a role in determining who may have been at fault for such a fearful accident. For instance if the child was in the care of a supervising adult who became distracted or may have been acting negligently in any way such an adult may be held liable for the accident through a claim of negligent entrustment also known as negligent supervision. If a safety device or a design defect in the apartment complex room itself may have played a role then the complex may bear liability for such an accident. If negligence by any entity involved in this unfortunate accident is suspected of being a contributing factor an independent investigation may be conducted that can work toward identifying the liable party or parties so that they can be held accountable for their negligent behavior that may have resulted in this injury accident.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
