Brooklyn Falling Object Lawyer

New York City is home to quite a lot of skyscraper buildings. The architecture, in general, brings many tourists to Manhattan and Brooklyn. While tall buildings certainly make for an impressive skyline, they can also put you at risk of accidents that may be less likely to occur outside of a major city.

You may one day be injured by an object that fell from a roof, window, or scaffolding. This often happens due to negligence. While you will hopefully never be involved in such an accident, you may be entitled to compensation if you do. Medical bills, lost wages, and other losses may be reimbursed. A Brooklyn falling objects attorney at Shulman & Hill can review your case to help you learn about your options.

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. For instance, the chances of a construction worker being hurt by a falling object are greater than they would be for an office employee.

In an environment like Brooklyn, anyone can potentially be injured in a falling object accident. You need to be cautious and avoid situations that can put you in danger. However, even if you are vigilant, it will not prevent others from being negligent. Their carelessness could result in an 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 a store shelf.

There are instances where a Brooklyn falling object accident can be a random occurrence, and no one is at fault. However, there exist potential scenarios in which such an accident may happen due to negligence. It is crucial to determine the difference when filing a claim.

Perhaps an item fell from a store shelf and struck you: it was not placed on the shelf properly, to begin with. An item fell from scaffolding that lacked proper guardrails. Or, an item fell off a construction site due to defective or poorly-maintained machinery or equipment.

In the case someone’s negligence caused your accident, it may remain unclear precisely who the negligent party is right away. A personal injury lawyer in Brooklyn can investigate the circumstances to identify them.

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 render you unable to work and earn a paycheck, at least temporarily resulting in stress and anxiety.

Compensation for such losses should be paid out accordingly. Optimize your chances of collecting what you may be owed by coordinating with a personal injury law firm in Brooklyn.

The Role of a Falling Objects Law Firm

The way in which you go about pursuing compensation to which you may be entitled an accident will depend on whether you were injured at work or not. 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 where to seek compensation and will guide you through the process.

Brooklyn falling objects accidents in the workplace

If your accident occurred 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 a genuine work-related incident. Establishing that your claim meets the relevant criteria is much less complicated when you work with a personal injury lawyer in Brooklyn.

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 investigation will generate the evidence necessary to prove negligence was a major contributing factor.

It might not always be clear who a negligent party is. This is why an investigation is critical. For instance, 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.

Our attorneys are prepared to go to court if the liable party does not offer a fair settlement.
