New York Falling Object Lawyer

New York boasts one of the most exciting and populous cities in the world! Unfortunately, this excitement can also bring forth its fair share of problems. Whether you are out and about enjoying your free time, passing new construction projects or renovations, or even shopping in a large warehouse-style store, there is always a chance that you could become the victim of a falling object accident.

As one might expect, injuries that come as a result of falling object accidents are more common in busy areas like New York. Although these occurrences are often viewed as freak accidents, they can still stem from some form of negligence. Unfortunately, this negligence can often result in an innocent person getting hurt. On some occasions, these injuries can lead to hospital stays, expensive doctors’ appointments, pain, suffering and time off from work. At the very least, they may have a negative effect on your short-term and long-term happiness.

Luckily, there are legal remedies in place for those who are injured due to the actions (or inactions) of another party. If you or someone you know has been hurt by a falling object in New York, you may want to consider legal counsel to discuss your options. In many cases, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim to seek compensation for your injuries and other damages related to the accident.

Although you may wish to pursue this issue on your own, filing a personal injury or premises liability lawsuit can be complicated and frustrating for someone who is not familiar with the process. Not only is the paperwork and filing process itself challenging, but it can also open the door to new problems. You may need to battle an insurance company to have a shot at fair compensation. If merely reading about the challenges of filing a New York falling object lawsuit has you feeling stressed, our lawyers at Shulman & Hill can help you pursue financial compensation.

Common Falling Object Incident Types

Anytime someone is injured in an accident on another business or person’s property, there is the possibility that the accident and injury were partially (or often entirely) due to negligence. In these accidents, the negligence of a property owner, property manager, construction site manager, foreman, or building manager could be the underlying issue. Some examples of situations where negligence could lead to dangerous falling objects include:

  • Warehouse or department stores with items stacked precariously on high shelves;
  • Big box stores may have normal items stacked incredibly high to help avoid the need for constant restocking;
  • Ceiling Collapses
  • Residential locations can contribute to a variety of falling debris, such as flower pots on the sill or window air conditioning units that may not be anchored properly;
  • Older, damaged buildings that are known for shedding their façade, loose bricks, and even window panes;
  • Construction sites that can be a source for falling construction materials, tools, equipment, and building materials.

 

Who is Liable in a Falling Object Accident?

When someone is injured in an accident involving falling objects, one of the most common misconceptions is that it is “nobody’s fault” because “accidents happen.” Unfortunately, many fall victim to this reasoning and do not pursue these matters because they believe nothing can be done. Victims often react this way because they are unaware that there are legal measures in place to protect them in the aftermath of these damages and losses.

If you think you may have been injured in a falling object accident due to the negligence of another party, you could benefit from reaching 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 New York personal injury firm 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 New York, 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 a state of complete disarray.

When you have been dealing with injuries, you may be hospitalized, in need of a doctor’s visit, or paying for other treatment. In the blink of an eye, you could suddenly have piles of medical bills and other expenses. Contrary to what insurance companies might tell 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 a loss of wages. The mental anguish, pain, and suffering you may experience are other damages that may be worth pursuing.

This is yet another area where working with an attorney can make your life much easier. Our team of New York falling object attorneys will likely know exactly what damages apply in your case and can identify how to quickly and effectively work towards proving those damages. Additionally, they may be able to help calculate the value of your non-financial losses. This can be extremely difficult for victims to do themselves.
