Falling Objects in Construction Sites
Our Pasadena Construction Accident Lawyer is Ready to Help You
Objects which are dropped from great heights or become airborne through the use of a power tool are a common hazard on or near construction sites in Southern California and throughout the United States. Equipment, planks, glass, and other materials falling from steep heights can be lethal if they strike an individual standing or walking below. Such injuries can result in losing the ability to work for an extended period of time or may lead to permanent injuries.
If you have been injured by a falling object as a worker, visitor, or passerby, you may be entitled to financial compensation for the damages you suffered. At Tedford & Associates, our Pasadena construction accident attorney has helped our clients pursue the compensation and justice they deserve for over 30 years. We can provide you with the effective and personalized legal solutions necessary to help you make the best recovery possible from injury.
The Liability of Construction Companies
It is imperative for project owners, contractors, and workers to observe the safety regulations designed to prevent injury. However, some contractors risk the wellbeing of their workers and others by ignoring these safety protocols to save time or money.
Common causes of falling objects include:
- Falling construction debris
- Collapse scaffolds
- Dropped tools and equipment
- Tipped ladders
- Roof or ceiling collapse
- Workers falling onto other workers
