Helping Workers Struck By Falling Debris
The effects from falling objects in an office setting are often inconsequential. But if your workplace is a construction site, a falling object as small as a bolt can cause serious injury and even death.
For more than half a century, the attorneys at Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C., in New York City have been helping clients and their families who have been injured by falling debris. We’ve helped them mainly by recovering all the compensation they are entitled to receive, under the law.
Holding Negligent Parties Accountable Since 1965
We are committed to holding owners, contractors and subcontractors responsible for lapses in safety that result in workers being injured by falling objects and construction site debris.
Going Beyond Workers’ Compensation To Locate All Sources Of Recovery
While most workers know that they can receive workers’ compensation for injuries caused by falling objects, many do not know that they may be able to pursue litigation against an owner, contractor or subcontractor who is not their employer. This is called a third-party claim. We have successfully pursued numerous third-party claims involving injuries caused by falling objects. Some of the objects that commonly cause serious injuries include:
- Tools such as hammers, sledgehammers and power tools
- Bricks and cinder blocks
- Metal fittings and pieces of metal railings
- Rebar or other metal bars
- Pieces of metal, sheet metal and duct work
- Support beams
- Wires or cables
