Injured by a Falling Object?

We Work to Protect Your Well-Being

When you are injured on somebody else’s property, the Perecman Firm helps to protect your future by strategically and proactively fighting on your behalf for the compensation you deserve.

Premises Accident Attorneys in New York City

All throughout New York City, you can expect to find construction sites on high rise buildings, including tower cranes, material hoists and construction activity being performed high above the sidewalks in the City. Unfortunately, the reality of the City’s ever expanding skyline causes potential risks and dangers of falling materials or equipment. Clearly, the workers at these elevated worksites are at risk, but less obvious are the risks posed to the pedestrians navigating the sidewalks and streets below. Sadly, it is no longer uncommon to hear of instances when pedestrians are injured by falling materials or even falling equipment, such as cranes. These falling materials or equipment can cause serious injuries or even death.

Some examples of falling items that have recently injured pedestrians include:

  • Heavy tools falling from elevated construction sites
  • Bricks from high-rise buildings
  • Objects falling off of ledges or balconies
  • Tower cranes that collapse due to failure or weather
  • Items thrown out of windows

Determining Liability for Injuries Caused By Falling Objects

If someone is harmed by a falling object, who is considered to be at fault? Fault in these unique type of premises liability cases can vary greatly from case to case, but typically, the at-fault party is whoever was in control of the premises where the accident took place. Speak directly with one of our New York City premises liability attorneys to discuss who may be at fault in your falling object case.

It is crucial to determine the at-fault party, especially when the injured party is a worker on a construction site — because it can give you a better idea of what type of claim you can file and to what damages you may be entitled. This is why having skilled legal counsel on your side is essential.
