Holding Contractors And Property Owners Accountable

Injuries from falling objects or debris usually happen because someone failed to take steps to keep pedestrians safe near construction or building renovation sites. Those steps may include:

  • Installing nets to catch objects dropped from scaffolding
  • Cleaning debris from sidewalks so pedestrians do not face a tripping hazard
  • Repairing loose bricks, trim, windows and stonework on buildings
  • Routing pedestrians around zones where they are at risk from falling objects
  • Covering walkways

The civil justice system can provide a strong motivation for contractors and property owners who fail to keep New York sidewalks safe for pedestrians. Our lawyers will seek the maximum compensation possible for damages such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
