New York City Falling Objects Injury Attorney

Falling Objects and Tools Cause Serious Injuries for New Yorkers

At The Marcowitz Law Firm, PLLC, we represent New Yorkers who have been hurt by items that have dropped onto their head or another part of their body. Attorney Eddie Marcowitz is a New York City falling object injury attorney with more than 30 years of experience achieving exceptional results for victims of others’ negligence.

Sites Where People Are Frequently Struck by Falling Items

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that more than 50,000 injuries occur each year when people are struck by falling objects. Thousands of tall buildings in New York City make this area particularly dangerous. These incidents are often associated with the following sites and activities:

  • Construction sites
  • Factories
  • Utility repairs
  • Window washing
  • Buildings with window unit air conditioners

Our firm is committed to helping people hurt by falling objects recover suitable compensation for their healthcare expenses, lost income and other accident-related costs. 

How Falling Object Injuries Happen in NYC

Object strikes are almost always attributable to negligence, but there are many ways that these incidents can occur, such as:

  • Improperly secured tools and appliances
  • Dropped forklift loads
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Careless placement or stacking of materials
  • Failure to install netting to catch construction debris

Whatever led to your injury, attorney Eddie Marcowitz will press for appropriate relief during settlement negotiations and at trial, if necessary.  

What to Do if You Have Been Hit

If you’ve been hit by something that fell from above, it is important to retain a New York head injury lawyer who has the skill and network of experts to handle these complicated claims. Depending on the particular situation, a hard hat, net or lanyard might have prevented the accident. Likewise, the blame could lie with a party that failed to take precautions like keeping tools, supplies and people away from the edges of high structures. Attorney Eddie Marcowitz understands how to present complex accident and medical evidence to help victims obtain the compensation they need to deal with current and future symptoms. In litigation stemming from traumatic brain injuries, impact to the spinal cord and wrongful deaths caused by dropped objects, our team delivers compelling arguments for plaintiffs.
