Falling Object Injuries and Construction Sites
The construction of commercial and residential buildings invariably involves dangers both from falls and from falling objects. Construction projects in New York City are particularly dangerous due to the unusual height of so many of our buildings.
Additionally, injuries from falls and falling objects can occur even on a day during which no work is being performed. For example, on a windy day, objects can blow off of a building, injuring or even killing pedestrians.
If you need legal help following a slip-and-fall injury or an injury from a fallen object that occurred on a construction site, contact the Queens law firm of Pearlman, Apat, Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP. We have handled numerous construction site accidents caused by:
- Falls from ladders and scaffolding
- Falls due to unsafe surfaces and dangerous debris
- Objects that were dropped or were poorly secured
- Falls involving construction elevators and cranes
