Struck By A Falling Object

Were You Seriously Injured By A Falling Object?

Falling objects can cause serious injuries, and while these incidents are most common on construction sites, they can occur anywhere there are objects overhead. Whether you were injured by a smaller object like a brick, tool, metal fitting, etc. or a larger object like a crate, sheet metal, wood beam, etc., your injuries may result in permanent damage and / or significant medical bills. If your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, an experienced personal injury attorney can help you secure the compensation you deserve.

Some of the more common falling objects that workers need to look out for include:

  • Metal fittings
  • Sheet metal
