Injuries From Falls Or Falling Objects
Under section 240 of the New York State Labor Law, contractors and certain property owners may be held strictly liable for injuries caused by falls or falling objects. If you have been injured by a falling object at a construction site, you may have more than a workers’ compensation case. You may be able to sue for additional personal injury compensation.
Workers’ compensation benefits are limited and offer no compensation for damages such as pain and suffering. Our civil justice allows you to recover financial compensation for all of your losses if your injury was caused by the negligence of another party. New York law regarding negligence at construction sites is very detailed, and only an experienced construction accident attorney can determine if you have an injury case.
Our team will investigate your claim and pursue the maximum compensation from all who may be responsible. Our lawyers have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for injured construction workers and their families.
Case results: Our attorneys recovered $12,000,000 (approximate structured payment with a then present-day settlement amount of $4,000,000) plus waiver of an approximate $300,000 lien for a 25-year-old undocumented laborer who was struck by a falling bucket at a construction site.
