Falling Objects & Debris

When Gravity Causes Injury

Section 240 of New York's labor law enables construction workers to recover compensation for injuries suffered in falls from scaffolds, ladders and other elevated positions. It also covers workers below who are injured by falling objects. The law makes a number of parties potentially liable for damages should an accident occur, including the property owner, construction company and scaffold owner.

If you have been injured by falling construction debris, tools or equipment, you should speak with an experienced construction accident attorney as soon as possible.

Even a seemingly straightforward falling debris case can involve complex issues of fact and law. When representing you, our NYC falling object and debris accident attorneys will thoroughly investigate the accident, identify all liable parties and seek full compensation for you.

Most Injuries On Small Projects

Though large high-rise construction projects can be the site of scaffold accidents and injuries from falling objects, the biggest impact of the scaffold law is on workers at smaller construction projects. The scaffold law is a powerful instrument that can enable injured workers to obtain compensation for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses. Caesar and Napoli, P.C., will work diligently to obtain full compensation for you.
