With so many people working at different levels on any given construction site, falling objects can cause serious injuries, even when workers take proper safety precautions, wearing helmets and other protective gear. At the law offices of Weik, Nitsche & Dougherty, our Delaware falling object injury attorneys protect the rights of all injured construction workers.
Construction sites are dangerous places, and with multiple subcontractors on a site, it is easy for miscommunication to lead to serious injuries. If you have been injured by a falling object or dangerous spill, our lawyers can help you explore your full range of recovery options. We represent construction workers who have been injured in all types of falling object accidents, including:
- Dropping hammers
- Objects falling off trucks
- Chemical spills
Rail car and train workers are also very susceptible to falling objects. These workers have to climb on rail cars, connecting and disconnecting trains. When the train owners do not supply proper protection, multiple people are at risk for injury.
All workers are entitled to the benefits of workers' compensation, but there is a limit to the amount of compensation you can receive. However, if someone besides your employer or a co-worker was responsible for the conditions that led to your falling object accident, you could file a personal injury claim for additional compensation.Contact Weik, Nitsche & Dougherty
