Freak accidents happen all the time and they're wildly unexpected, that's what makes them freak accidents.
They still happen all the time. It can be due to many factors. Nature is especially unpredictable. Think about it, nowadays, neighbourhoods that don't usually get that humid have been getting more rain than usual. People aren't prepared for weather conditions like that and they may be living in homes that aren't equipped with the proper preparation one would usually have in case of a regular downpour. This causes their wood-centred furniture to rot from the inside and their metal types of equipment to rust faster than they should.
Besides weather, the recent quarantine has motivated many homeowners to adopt a new pet or have a little one in their home. Appropriate furniture items and gear were difficult to obtain and people found it harder than usual to earn the money they used to receive. This made damages in your home far more frequent such as the damage that's in our featured image.
Doors that have windows built into them look good and are functional as well but they could also prompt an easier break and entry for possible burglars. They will see your damaged door window and attempt to access your locks through the opening it has provided.
