Injuries From Falling Objects on Construction Sites

Helping Workers Injured by Falling Objects in Delaware

In any type of construction, from a single-story home to a high-rise apartment or commercial building, the risk of injury from falling objects can be great and can frequently be attributed to the negligence of an owner, contractor or coworker. Building materials may not be properly secured, or a ladder or scaffold may have been poorly or improperly constructed. Hand tools left around on a roof or an upper floor can be kicked or knocked off, causing serious injury to anyone in their path of descent. When you have been injured by a falling object on a construction site, we have the skill, knowledge, experience and resources to help you pursue full and fair compensation for all your losses.

At the office of Michael J. Hood, LLC, we have fought for the rights of injury victims in Delaware, including people hurt by falling objects at a construction site, for more than 31 years. We take a straightforward approach, making certain you understand up front what the strengths and weaknesses of your case are, how much you can realistically expect to recover and your likelihood of a full financial recovery. We will work closely with you throughout the legal process, letting you know about all developments in your case, as well as your options, so that you can make good decisions.

When You Have Been Hurt by a Falling Object at a Construction Site

We provide comprehensive legal counsel to people who have suffered an injury when struck by a falling object at a construction site. We will conduct an exhaustive investigation of what happened, visiting the job site if necessary. We will question all potential witnesses and work with experts if appropriate to put together the most compelling case for your full financial recovery. Attorney Hood will also be your advocate in all hearings or meetings, including trial proceedings and any interactions with insurance providers.

We take cases involving injuries sustained when:

  • Tools, equipment or machinery fall from a roof or other height
  • Construction materials are blown off an upper level, are improperly secured or are knocked off by workers
  • Owners or general contractors fail to put protective barriers in place, so that workers or others are exposed to conditions in which they may be injured by falling objects
  • Ladders, cranes or scaffolding are improperly placed or constructed, leading to injury because of falling objects

We will help you seek damages for all your losses, including lost income, medical bills, physical pain and suffering and loss of companionship. We take all types of injury claims, from serious and catastrophic loss to wrongful death actions.
