Injured by a Falling Object

A hammer falls off a scaffold and hits a pedestrian below. A chunk of concrete falls from a bridge under repair and crushes a car. A television on a wall in a retail store breaks away from its mounting and falls onto a child. None of these accident victims did anything wrong. They were injured because others were negligent.
