Were You Injured By Falling Objects Or Debris?

Injuries from falling objects at a construction site are preventable accidents that someone failed to prevent. If you were injured due to another person's negligence, you may have the right to seek compensation from the party responsible for your injury.

At the Law Offices of William W. Green & Associates in Anaheim, our attorneys represent construction workers who are injured on the job. We also represent pedestrians who are injured by falling objects or debris while walking past a construction site. Call 714-464-6903 for a free lawyer consultation.

Beyond Workers' Compensation

If you are injured on the job, you are entitled to compensation from California workers' compensation regardless of who was at fault. If you were injured as a result of another person's negligence, you may also have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit. Here are examples of negligence that can lead to injuries from falling objects:

  • Loose or damaged bricks or facing on a building
  • A contractor's failure to install safety nets to catch falling objects
  • Placing workers in harm's way by having them work directly beneath other workers on an elevated structure
  • Failure to provide workers a hard hat
  • Building or scaffolding collapses

While you generally cannot sue your employer except in cases of extreme negligence, you can sue third parties such as property owners and other contractors working on the site. Learn more about third-party claims in construction accidents.

By filing a personal injury clam against the party that was responsible for your injury, you can recover compensation for losses that are not covered by workers' compensation, including pain and suffering.
