Experienced injury attorneys help victims of falling objects in NYC, Nassau and Suffolk Counties
Accidents resulting from falling objects can be fatal. It only takes a small object falling from a great height to kill someone. Falling object accidents most commonly occur on a construction site. Both workers and pedestrians have the potential to be struck and catastrophically injured. In many cases, injuries are preventable with the proper precautions.
Failure to follow safety protocols, improper training or use of tools, malfunctions, lack of warning signs, improperly loading a crane or forklift, and more all effect the chances of an accident occurring. Negligence is typically involved, which is key in arguing a personal injury or workers’ compensation claim. Oftentimes tools, debris and/or building materials are dropped. These result in head, neck and spinal injuries, broken bones, concussions, paralysis, permanent disability, and in severe cases death. It takes an experienced attorney to thoroughly examine your case and prove negligence was involved.
