Falling Object Injuries
Builders and subcontractors in the construction industry work in a hazardous field. Injuries suffered while working can be dangerous and life-threatening. New York laws protect these workers’ rights and hold property owners liable for compensating injured construction professionals when on-the-job accidents occur.
If you have suffered injuries while working on a construction site in Queens or the New York City metropolitan area, call COHEN & COHEN PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS, P.C. Our Forest Hills-based law firm provides aggressive representation for construction professionals. Contact us to schedule a free case evaluation with a personal injury attorney today.
Pursuing Damages Beyond What Workers’ Compensation Covers
Steel beams, Sheetrock, limestone or other heavy objects suspended from a crane need to be secured. The smallest oversight can lead to the object falling and causing serious injury or death. Even smaller debris, gravel or construction tools can become deadly projectiles when falling at an increasing rate of speed.
Maximizing compensation for construction workers and family members grieving a wrongful death is our top priority. Workers’ compensation can only go so far in meeting our clients’ financial needs following a construction accident. We also pursue damages for ongoing medical care, lost wages, lost potential earnings, and incurred pain and suffering from tool manufacturers, outside subcontractors and other third parties.
