Recovering Compensation For Workers Hit By Falling Objects
Workers on construction sites face numerous hazards on a daily basis, including getting struck by falling objects. If you have suffered an injury caused by a falling object on a construction site, the lawyers at the Gillis Law Firm are here to help you seek fair and just compensation for your losses. We are the New Haven law firm that injured Connecticut workers have trusted since 1978.
The Dangers Of Falling Objects On Construction Sites
When an object falls from heights, it can pick up speed significantly by the time it hits a worker on the ground. Even a small object such as a bolt or a small wrench can cause a serious head injury after falling from an area high off the ground. A large object such as a power tool, a toolbox or piece of heavy equipment can cause devastating injuries after falling from heights.
Head injuries are often the result of accidents involving falling objects. Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can have significant and life-altering effects. Our lawyers are prepared to handle personal injury and workers’ compensation cases involving serious injuries and wrongful death. We thoroughly investigate these cases to determine if the falling object was the result of improper training, failure to follow safety protocols or other forms of negligence.
Work Site Injury Cases Are Complex, But We’re Prepared
At Gillis Law Firm, we know how to hold employers, contractors and property owners accountable for falling object accidents caused by failure to post warnings, failure to enforce safety procedures and other violations. We can work with you whether you are just beginning to seek workers’ compensation benefits or have already seen your claim denied.
We are also highly experienced in handling third-party claims. In many construction site accidents, a workers’ compensation claim forms just one part of compensation. A third-party claim, filed against a contractor or subcontractor, can lead to additional high-value compensation.
