Brooklyn Falling Object Lawyer

While New York City’s tall buildings certainly make for an impressive skyline, they can also put you at risk of accidents that are less likely to occur outside of a major city.

Pedestrians and workers alike may one day be injured by an object that fell from a roof, window, or scaffolding. This can happen for many reasons: negligence, incorrect placement, or construction defects. While you will hopefully never be involved in such an accident, you may be entitled to compensation if you are. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to recover medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related losses.

A Brooklyn falling objects attorney at Shulman & Hill can review your case and help explain your legal options. Contact us today for a free legal consultation.

What You Need to Know About Brooklyn Falling Objects Cases

Accidents involving falling objects are fairly common. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, hundreds of thousands of American workers are injured as a result of such accidents every year.

Some people are at a greater-than-average risk of being injured by falling objects. The chances of a construction worker being hurt by a falling object are greater than they would be for an office employee, for example.

In an industrial environment like Brooklyn, however, anyone can potentially be injured in an unexpected falling object accident.

Causes of Brooklyn Falling Object Accidents

There are many potential causes of Brooklyn falling object accidents, including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Failing to properly secure an air conditioner in a window
  • An object falling from a construction site or roof
  • An item falling from an elevated shelf, scaffolding, or platform

Sometimes accidents may occur due to another party’s negligence. Perhaps an item fell from a store shelf that was not placed on the shelf properly to begin with, and it struck you. Or an item fell from scaffolding that lacked proper guardrails. Or, an item fell near a construction site due to defective or poorly-maintained machinery or equipment.

After an accident, you may not know if negligence occurred. A personal injury attorney can investigate the circumstances of how you were injured by a falling object to see if another party may be held financially responsible for your losses.

The Aftermath of a Brooklyn Falling Object Accident

The potential injuries you may sustain when struck by a falling object are wide-ranging. Some injuries, such as head trauma, may have a permanent impact on your quality of life.

Even injuries that do not have long-term impacts can still require medical treatment. They can also prevent you from working and earning a paycheck, at least temporarily, resulting in added stress and anxiety.

A personal injury law firm in Brooklyn can help you recover fair compensation for the losses you have suffered.

The Role of a Falling Objects Law Firm

How you pursue compensation after a falling object accident will depend on whether you were injured at work. If you were injured while working, you most likely qualify for workers’ compensation. You may also qualify for a personal injury lawsuit.

In either case, you are more likely to recover a fair payout if you hire a Brooklyn falling object lawyer to represent you. An attorney can help determine how best to seek compensation and will guide you through the process.

Brooklyn Falling Object Accidents in the Workplace

If you were injured in an accident at work, you may seek compensation by filing a workers’ compensation claim. To ensure your claim is approved in a timely manner, you may need to prove your accident was genuinely work-related. Establishing that your claim meets the relevant criteria is much less complicated when you work with a workers’ compensation lawyer in Brooklyn.

Additionally, even if you were injured at work, you may be able to bring a lawsuit for additional damages if a third party, including a property owner or contractor, was negligent or violated a workplace safety law or regulation.

General Brooklyn Falling Objects Accidents

If you were injured in a Brooklyn falling object accident when you were not at work, you may still be entitled to compensation if someone else’s negligence caused the accident. Our Brooklyn attorneys will investigate the accident, and if negligence occurred, we will obtain the evidence necessary to hold them accountable.

It might not always be clear who a negligent party is. This is why an investigation is critical. A store may be responsible for compensating you if you were injured when an item fell from a store shelf due to poor placement. On the other hand, if the item fell because the shelf itself was defective and failed to support the item’s weight, the company that designed or manufactured the shelf may be liable.

Brooklyn Falling Object Attorneys Negotiate on Your Behalf

When you file a claim against a negligent party, it is possible the insurance company might try to convince you to settle for less than your claim is truly worth.

Hiring an attorney to represent you can ensure you recover fair compensation. Our Brooklyn falling object lawyers will handle communications with the insurance companies on your behalf, providing all necessary information showing you deserve the full amount of compensation you are seeking. If the insurance company does not offer a fair settlement, our attorneys are prepared to represent you in trial.

By allowing an attorney to handle the claims process, you will have more time and freedom to focus on your recovery and health.
