How Our Falling Object Lawyers Serving New York Can Help with Your Case
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 applicable at construction sites that are specifically designed to prevent falling construction debris and other objects from injuring construction workers. Objects falling from buildings or store shelves are covered under premises liability law.
Our qualified and experienced team of lawyers will perform a careful and thorough investigation of your accident in order to build a strong claim of negligence against a property owner, construction company or other party. Besides establishing negligence, we will establish the full extent of your injuries as well as the financial impact of your injuries.
In order to build the strongest claim for maximum compensation, we may do the following for you:
- Obtain all police and incident reports
- Secure video footage and accident scene photographs
- Interview witnesses
- Perform a site visit
- Retain experts in construction or building site safety and management
- Gather all medical and hospital records
- Consult medical experts regarding your prognosis and diagnosis
- Evaluate all economic losses such as lost wages and medical expenses
- Negotiate for a fair settlement
- File all claims in a timely manner
- Prepare your case for trial in Court if necessary
Head Trauma From Falling Objects
Falling objects frequently result in serious head trauma. All falling objects accelerate as they fall, so 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.
If You were Harmed By a Falling Object While Working at a Job Site
Some falling objects occur on worksites due to unsecured tools or building materials. For instance, you could have been hit by a hammer that a contractor kicked off from a scaffold. While you cannot file a lawsuit against your employer, New York law provides powerful worker protections which may enable you to sue the General Contractor or owner of a particular job site following injuries from a falling object. In addition to filing a lawsuit against these parties, you may also be entitled to Worker’s Compensation benefits.
