Girl Falls 30 feet through a Skylight and New York Personal Injury Lawyer David Perecman is not Falling for Excuses
Date:5/28/2009

New York personal injury lawyer David Perecman questions the presence of an unfenced skylight near a rooftop playground.

New York, NY (PRWEB) May 28, 2009 -- A girl falls 30 feet through a skylight and New York personal injury lawyer David Perecman knows that this is a lucky fall. A 30-foot drop has the potential to cause far more severe injuries then only the broken arm and leg suffered by the eight year old. A fall like this can be fatal.

Mr. Perecman and other New York personal injury lawyers wonder why there was no railing around this skylight that was located next to a rooftop playgroup.

"This fall highlights the need for building managers and owners to carefully monitor the health and safety procedures in place," says personal injury lawyer Perecman. "Building managers must practice good risk management practices and view it from the eyes of a child."

The girl, whose name was not released, was walking towards a staircase to retrieve a ball that had fallen to the street when the skylight she was walking on gave way. No one else was injured.

The school the girl was attending shares its space with a popular Jewish wedding hall. The skylight allows for couples to marry in accordance with the rules of a traditional Jewish wedding, which requires an "open sky directly above" the ceremony. New York personal injury lawyer Perecman is quick to point out that an 8-year old girl would not understand the dangers associated with stepping onto an unfenced skylight near a playground.

New York personal injury lawyers predict that if this case goes to trial the building managers and owners are going to have a difficult time defending the lack of precaution. New York State law requires landlords to take reasonable precautions in the face of potential injury and the failure on their part to do so will see liability fall on them.
