If you have been injured by a falling object while on the job at a construction site, turn to our attorney at the Law Offices of Jeffrey I. Amtman. Our New York and New Jersey construction accident lawyer has extensive experience handling a wide range of construction injury cases, including those resulting from falling objects.
We strive to help clients understand their rights and pursue compensation on their behalf for the losses they have suffered, including lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
Though many construction sites require hard hats to be worn, a falling object that strikes a worker on the head can still cause serious brain injuries. Other falling objects may not strike the head, but break bones in the arms or other parts of the body.
It is important that all safety precautions be taken by the contractor and site owner to ensure the continued safety of the workers as construction progresses. In some cases, the object may have fallen due to a defective piece of equipment. Our firm can examine all aspects of the situation and determine who is at fault for the accident that caused the injuries. We also handle cases where a wrongful death occurred as the result of a blow by a falling object.
Falling objects can be of any size, shape or material
Unsecured pieces of equipment
Parts of scaffolding

Amtman has over 32 years of experience providing representation to injured clients and seeking compensation through workers’ compensation, third-party lawsuits, defective and dangerous equipment claims, and OSHA violation lawsuits.
