New York Falling Object Injury Lawyer
Representing Workers Injured by Falling Debris, Dropped Tools and More
Under New York law, construction site workers who suffer injuries as a result of falls, falling objects and other gravity-related accidents are granted special protection and advantages during litigation. This is because these kinds of job site hazards are some of the most dangerous.
When a heavy steel beam, a slab of sheet rock or other weighty object is suspended from a crane, for instance, one small mistake can mean death or serious injury to the worker below. Unfortunately, New York has seen its share of recent fatal crane accidents. Even a small object, such as a drill or wrench, can become a deadly projectile when dropped from a certain height.
