Negligence and Falling Objects
Many people are hit by falling objects in construction sites, from buildings, bridges, warehouses and stores. When we handle a falling object case, we first examine where it took place. There are regulations governing safety precautions that must be taken at construction sites. Objects falling from buildings or store shelves are covered under premises liability law.
Falling object cases are unique in that negligence of some form is presumed. Things do not fall out of the sky unless someone was not paying attention. Our job is to prove who was negligent. We must show that the item that fell was under the control of the responsible party. Because our firm focuses exclusively on personal injury, we know how to build a case, regardless of the circumstances.
Head Trauma From Falling Objects
Falling objects frequently result in serious head trauma. Because all falling objects accelerate at roughly 22 mph, even a very small object can cause severe damage. Because these objects typically land on a person’s head, brain injuries and other head traumas are common.
Falling Objects at Construction Sites
Falling objects are common at construction sites. OSHA has strict regulations to try to minimize the number of injuries caused by falling objects. Our attorneys handle falling object claims from the following types of construction accidents:
- Unsecured equipment
- Scaffolding collapse
- Crane accidents
- Failed safety measures
- Machinery defects
