Long Island City Falling Objects Cases: Essential Information

According to research from the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, falling objects injure hundreds of thousands of American workers every year. Workers in construction and similar fields are particularly at risk of being injured by falling objects.

Potential causes of work-related falling object accidents include–but are not necessarily limited to–the following:

  • Failure to enact and/or explain proper safety procedures at a work site
  • Damaged or poorly-installed scaffolding
  • Failure to provide workers with adequate safety equipment
  • Failure to properly train workers

It is worth noting that not all Long Island City falling object accidents are work-related. If you were walking beneath a window with an improperly installed air conditioning unit, it could fall and strike you. Or, if you walk by a construction site, you may be injured if a worker drops an object.

The Aftermath of a Long Island City Falling Objects Accident

The types of injuries you may sustain when struck by a falling object include head trauma, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and more. Regardless of their specific nature, your injuries will likely require medical treatment for which you might not be prepared to pay. Your ability to cover your medical bills may be further limited if your injuries are severe enough to keep you from working temporarily or permanently.

It is possible you can recover compensation for such losses. To see if you may qualify, contact our experts at our law firm in Long Island City. We can help explain the best method for pursuing compensation based on the circumstances of your accident.

How Our Long Island City Injury Law Firm Can Help You

If you were struck and injured by an object that fell in Long Island City, you should seek medical attention right away. This is essential even if you do not believe you have been seriously injured. Seeing a doctor may protect you from developing a more severe injury later on, and having your visit and accident documented can benefit your future claim.

As soon as you are able to, you should report the incident to your employer if the accident occurred at work. Report it to the property manager, business owner, or another relevant party if the accident occurred in another context, such as while you were visiting a store.

If it is safe to do so, document the scene by taking pictures of any details that may be used as evidence in your future claim. If there were witnesses on the scene, get their names and contact information. If at all possible, ask for written or recorded statements from them while the accident is still fresh in their minds.

Schedule a consultation with our Long Island City injury lawyers next. In these circumstances, an attorney in Long Island City can help in the following key ways:

Investigating the Accident

If your accident was work-related, you may seek compensation by filing a claim to collect from your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance.

You may also be able to file a lawsuit against the party whose negligence caused your accident if it occurred outside of work or if a party other than your employer, such as a property owner or contractor, contributed to your accident. We can review your case to determine who may be held liable for your accident.

Often, insurance companies attempt to deny or undervalue claims. Your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer, for example, may try to deny your claim by arguing that your accident was not work-related. If you are filing a personal injury lawsuit, the negligent party’s insurer may argue you have not provided enough evidence showing your accident truly was the result of the defendant’s negligence.

Having a Long Island City falling objects lawyer on your side can be extremely beneficial. They can investigate the accident to yield the evidence needed to show you have a right to the compensation you are seeking.

Recovering a Fair Settlement

Our Long Island City falling object injury attorneys will review all of your losses to help ensure you receive the full amount of compensation you may be entitled to. We can also negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf if they refuse to offer you a fair settlement. If you do not have proper legal representation, an insurer might try to convince you to accept an unreasonably low offer.

Handling Related Administrative Tasks

If you have been injured as a result of being struck by a falling object in Long Island City, you should focus on your recovery, not the administrative tasks involved in a compensation claim. We can handle all of the relevant paperwork and correspondence with insurance adjusters.
