Bronx Falling Object Lawyer

In the Bronx, the threat of falling objects is greater than in other parts of the country due to an abundance of tall buildings. Accidents occur every day and there is always the chance that you may be hit by a falling object if you live or work in the area.

Although they are often considered rare accidents, bystanders, pedestrians, and workers are at risk of being injured at any time by a falling object. Workers in fields like construction are especially at risk of being struck by falling tools and other objects, particularly when they are working from elevated heights on scaffolding, ladders, and roofs.

There are legal remedies in place for those who are injured in an accident caused by a negligent party. If you or someone you know has been hurt by a falling object in the Bronx, you should speak with our falling object lawyers to discuss your options. In many cases, you may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit to seek compensation for your injuries and other damages related to the accident. Contact Shulman & Hill for a free legal consultation to learn more.

Common Causes of Bronx Falling Object Accidents

When someone is injured by a falling object, the accident may be due to negligence. In these accidents, the negligence could stem from a property owner, construction contractors, or subcontractors. Some examples of situations where negligence could lead to dangerous falling object accidents include:

  • Warehouse, retail, or grocery stores with items stacked precariously high.
  • Poorly maintained roofing, lighting, or ceiling materials.
  • Flower pots on apartment windowsills or window air-conditioning units that may not be anchored properly.
  • Older, damaged buildings that are not regularly maintained and shed their façade, loose bricks, window panes, and more.
  • Property owners and contractors on construction sites who fail to properly secure tools, equipment, building materials, or scaffolding.
  • Unsecured cargo or supplies from trucks or containers.

Who May Be Liable In A Bronx Falling Object Accident?

One of the most common misconceptions, when someone is injured in a falling object accident, is that it is “nobody’s fault” because “accidents happen.” Unfortunately, many fall victim to this reasoning and do not pursue the matter because they think that nothing can be done. Victims often react this way because they do not know who could be responsible or that there are legal measures in place to protect them in the aftermath of these accidents and account for their losses.

If you think you may have been injured in a falling object accident due to the negligence of another party, you should reach out to a qualified personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Although you may wish to pursue damages on your own, building a case can feel like a full-time job. For help determining liability, reach out to an experienced Bronx personal injury lawyer at Shulman and Hill to discuss the details of your case as soon as possible.

Possible Damages In A Falling Object Lawsuit

If you or someone you know has been injured by a falling object in the Bronx, the resulting damages can be financially devastating. The combination of economic and non-economic damages that occur following a painful accident can throw your life into disarray.

Contrary to what insurance companies may try to convince you, medical expenses are often just the beginning. As you work towards a full recovery, rehabbing your injuries could cause you to miss work and suffer the loss of wages.

This is yet another area where working with an attorney can help alleviate some of your stress. Our Bronx falling object attorneys can help obtain compensation on your behalf for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, and more.

How a Bronx Falling Object Law Firm Can Help You

Injuries from falling objects can be severe, causing you to miss work and negatively affecting your short and long-term health. They may also lead to hospitalizations and expensive doctor’s appointments.
