Large sliding gates that fall on people


Gates are intended to contain a perimeter of a property. Many gates are the type that need to be pulled and pushed to open, others are automatic and are controlled by some sort of electronic device.

We take for granted that they are secure and attached properly. However, there are many accidents that occur because many gates are either not fabricated properly, or because they are not maintained.

Many accidents happen that cause serious personal injury and even death. Example: Standing next to a large gate that is sliding open, and the gate comes off of the track or goes past the end of the track, and it falls onto the person. Gates are extremely heavy and can kill you if you are trapped beneath them.

This happens more often than you might think.
