NJ Falling Object Injury Lawyers

Falling Objects Resulting in Construction Accidents

Construction yards are extremely dangerous, especially when the work-in-progress is more than a few stories high. From even a small distance up, even the lightest object that falls off can pose a great risk to anyone below! That is why hard hats are required on work-sites. But sometimes something falls that even a hard hat cannot stop – or worse – it falls outside of the hard hat required area and onto the street. That is when trouble really begins.

If you have been injured due to falling debris from a construction site, or a loved one lost their life near a ram-shackled construction site because of falling gear, call Lependorf & Silverstein, P.C. today at (609) 240-0040.

In New Jersey and New York, these types of accidents are hardly the exception…

In recent years there have been a number of high profile incidents involving construction sites and falling material throughout the tri-state area. Quite often these accidents resulted in severe injury or death. And in almost every situation, the victim was either another member of the on-site crew, a delivery person or simply a passerby. None of these folks are remotely responsible for what happens on a half-built structure hundreds of feet above the ground.

However, the site managers, property owners, local foreman and site supervisors overseeing the project could all be held accountable for such a tragedy. Whether the accident is the result of a tool falling off of a contractor’s utility belt, parts of a crane dropping to the street below or simply a chunk of ice breaking loose from a half-built infrastructure, these are all accidents that can be prevented before anyone is hurt or killed. Negligence on the part of those in charge of a construction site can cost lives.
