The Husband of my friend who lives in Toronto just recently had an accident in their very own home. Our home is where we should feel most secure and safe yet moments like this prove that even in the place that we are most comfortable, accidents could still happen.
Right now, he is staying in Hudsonn inn as the repairs go about in their home.
What happened was that my friend’s husband was trying to secure their roof in his own. The night before, the living room was damped with rain water because apparently, the roof had holes already and so the rain water seeped through roof and into the ceiling which then slowly caved in because of the water. While he was trying to seal the holes, he slipped and fell of the side. Good thing that he was still working on the sides of the roof so his fall was only a few feet up. However, he landed on his foot and sprained his ankles. He was rushed to the hospital and he is okay, but their roof remained gaping with holes and the ceiling dripping with water.
When things like this happen, it is always best to be calm so that you would not make any drastic movement. A body that has undergone a physical attack such as this is better off if not moved because the body has to be assessed for possible fractures and other injuries. It is best to call experts as soon as possible so that proper handling will be done. I have a trusted roofing service that I keep in constant contact to keep an eye on the roofing conditions of the Hudsonn inn, and so I recommended that my friend call them.
Shouting and crying is a normal reaction especially because these events are scary, no matter how grave or small the accident may be. But even if you are filled with emotion, be sure to think straight and never do anything irrational that could only lead to further damages. When the situation is being handled by professionals, it is best to listen to their instructions.
I also reminded my friend that when all the chaos was over and the roofing and water damage problems were fixed, they should contact the real estate agent and have them compensate for the damages.Read More
