Woman Hurt by Falling Tree Limb in Central Park

A woman was taken to the hospital after she was struck by a heavy branch of a tree in Central Park this afternoon.  The woman was walking along a path in the park near 86th Street and Central Park West when the falling limb hit her in the head, according to the FDNY. She was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital in serious condition.

It is important in a case like this to hire the proper lawyer and investigators. There have been several cases in recent years where the City of New York was held responsible for injuries to people hurt by falling tree branches.  In those cases it was proven the City had prior notice of a damaged tree limb and failed to remedy the danger.  A proper search of City records at this early stage is imperative. 

There are usually very serious injuries associated with heavy tree branch accidents.  Contact Glenn Dolan if you or a loved one has been injured in this type of accident for a free consultation.
