Falling Object Accidents
Call Rosenblum Law Offices if you have been injured from a falling object. Many people are injured each year as the result of objects falling on them in stores, from buildings, or near construction sites. If you, or someone you know, is injured, or killed by a falling object, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and expenses. Our attorneys can help you if you or someone you know has suffered injuries in a falling object accident. We help people in cases involving:
- Construction sites
- Roadway construction sites
- Bridge repair sites
- Building facades
- Bulk stores (Home Depot, Wal-Mart, CostCo, etc.)
- Backs of trucks
To establish liability in any falling object case, you must prove that the defendant was in control of the placement and/or handling of the material that fell. However, falling object cases are usually different than other type of negligence cases because when something drops on someone, they may be determined to be liable because the negligence speaks for itself. In other words, things do not fall on people unless someone is negligent.
If you or someone you know has been injured, you should immediately obtain medical attention for your injuries. In addition, it is important to report the incident to store management, the police, and/or the site foreman of the construction site. Make sure that they take a written report and get a copy. It is important that the evidence be collected and documented as soon as possible to protect your rights. Finally, you should contact a qualified falling object attorney to protect your rights and help you obtain compensation for your injuries.
