It is an unfortunate fact that accidents can happen anytime, anywhere.
When an accident is caused by another person's negligence or neglect,
however, it only serves to compound the pain and suffering because those
types of accidents are completely preventable. As was the case with an
accident that took place at Weeping Water School in eastern Nebraska on
Sunday, March 3rd, 2013. Around 1:30pm, during a youth wrestling tournament,
a cable, or bolt, that was holding up a retractable basketball hoop allegedly
broke causing the hoop to fall and injure four people. Two of the injured
had to be flown to a local hospital for treatment, while the other two
were transported by ambulance. Reports show the exact cause of the accident
is currently under investigation.
Accidents like these can often be referred to as premises liability accidents.
In a premises liability accident, the owner of the property or building
where the accident occurred, can be held liable for the accident providing
they either failed to properly maintain the property, neglected to post
required safety warnings, or were negligent in some other fashion that
resulted in the accident and injuries.
