New York Falling Objects Attorneys
Working in the construction industry can place employees at risk of suffering a severe injury due to a number of hazards. One often encountered and serious danger is that of falling objects. The state of New York recognizes the serious danger falling objects pose to construction workers and, as such, has enacted labor law section 240 to try and protect construction workers from these types of accidents. Whether an improperly secured object falls from a building or an object falls off a scaffold on which another worker is working, this section of the labor laws states that the property owner or general contractor is strictly liable for the accident and will be held financially responsible for the injury.
If you have been injured in a construction accident involving falling objects, you likely suffered serious injuries, which possibly required expensive medical care and a long recovery period. The New York construction accident attorneys of Hach & Rose, LLP, work aggressively to help construction workers in such situations. Call 866-LAWS-USA today to discuss how a member of our team may be able to help you obtain financial assistance for the suffering you’ve unfairly had to endure.
Falling Object Hazards
Falling objects on construction sites can be especially hazardous, as the heights and types of objects involved often pose more danger than those encountered in other situations. Some of the most common potential hazards include:
- Construction tools
- Bricks and cinder blocks
- Metal equipment
- Heavy cables
Our construction accident lawyers have successfully protected the rights and interests of union and non-union workers alike by obtaining large settlements, sometimes worth millions of dollars, when they’ve been injured by these and other hazards.
