Talk To A Lawyer If You Were Injured By A Falling Object While Working On A Construction Site
Despite state and federal regulations designed to protect workers from falling debris, injuries related to this very cause continue to happen with alarming regularity. General contractors can be held accountable when the failure to take the necessary precautions leads to serious injuries to workers.
If you have been injured by a falling object or piece of debris while working on a construction site, you have the right to seek compensation for your medical care, your loss of income and any other losses you may suffer as a result of your injury. Enlisting the help of a qualified New York City attorney can help to ensure that you receive the full measure of compensation available for your claim.
We obtained $35 million in damages for a client who suffered severe brain injuries and paralysis after he was hit by falling concrete while working on an elevated subway trestle rehabilitation project. The debris barrier being used on the site was not properly installed and was insufficient to contain the falling cement as it was removed from the trestle.
