Falling Objects Injuries
Experienced Lawyers For Falling Object Accidents & Injuries in New York City
Construction workers injured by Falling Objects
In construction sites all over New York City and the surrounding areas, there is a lot of activity going on many feet above the ground. When workers inadvertently drop materials to the ground, innocent bystanders on the ground are at risk for serious injury. When an object falls from a great height, it does not have to be very large to cause damage. If you or a loved one was struck by a falling object, you could suffer head or brain injuries, injuries to the arms or shoulders, or other severe injuries. In these situations it is crucial that you have an attentive, skilled lawyer on your side. A lawyer can help you understand your legal rights and prepare a strong claim for your damages.
We are the New York City attorneys for falling object injuries at Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff LLP. For generations our law firm has helped injured workers recover full and fair compensation after serious injuries.
Working Hard to Hold Every Party Accountable for Your Injuries
The critical question in every accident on a construction site is: Who is responsible for your injuries? If your employer is at fault, in most cases your financial recovery will be limited to workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation is helpful to injured workers, but it will not provide for all of your lost wages and certain other damages.
On the other hand, if a subcontractor, vendor or other party caused your injuries, you have the right to bring what is known as a “third-party claim” against that party. Our law firm represents injured workers in third-party claims, and we have developed a longstanding history of success in these claims.
Whether you were hit by a tool, a piece of debris or another object, we will get to the bottom of what happened and take action against those responsible. We will thoroughly prepare your case and work towards a favorable outcome, either in trial or in settlement negotiations.
