Piergrossi & Peterman, LLP
Representing Citizens of New York since 1967
Construction workers are at an increased risk of being struck by falling objects such as tools, building materials and other debris. This is because they often work at elevated construction sites where objects can easily be dropped from great heights. These falling objects can cause brain injuries, spinal cord injuries or even fatalities.
At Piergrossi & Peterman, LLP, we have represented accident victims and their families for more than four decades. Our personal injury attorneys understand and appreciate the importance of securing much-needed compensation for medical bills, time away from work, and pain and suffering.
Contact us at 718-515-6000 to schedule a free consultation. We handle these cases on a contingency basis. This means you will not be responsible for legal fees unless we recover compensation for your falling object injury claim. Se habla español.
Our firm will prepare a strong and compelling case with the assistance of nationally recognized accident reconstructionists, medical professionals and insurance evaluators. Our first step in this process will be to conduct a comprehensive investigation to determine the exact cause of your falling object injury.
Frequent causes of these types of accidents include:
Negligence on the part of the site owner or general contractor
Errors made by subcontractors
Coworkers slipping, tripping or dropping an object
OSHA and industrial code violations
Inadequate safety training
Section 240 of the New York Labor Law outlines the safety measures that general contractors or construction site owners must take to prevent construction accidents. General contractors or construction site owners that fail to take these precautions may be held civilly liable by injured workers.
Please note, Section 240 also protects workers who have been injured by faulty scaffolding or ladders.
Our firm's experienced trial lawyers stay current on the constantly evolving laws. They are in the courtroom every day, an approach that allows them to stay up to date with the ways judges and juries interpret these rules and regulations. When CPP handles your falling object injury case, we put all available resources into fighting to win.
