Annual U.S. Garage Door Injury Statistics
According to a 2007 NEISS Hospital study on the “door system”, approximately 7,557 persons suffer garage door injuries such as fingers caught between section joints (which include amputations, avulsions, etc). Another 2,102 indicated the door fell. These statistics are alarming. Some injuries occur accidentally and others, because of installation negligence.
While it is true that garage doors will need repair throughout their life span, it is also true that professional installation with a focus on consumer safety plays a vital role. Safety should be at the core of all installations. As such, garage door installation and repair services go far beyond a price sheet. The safety of you and your family are at stake.
