Construction Injury Lawyers Serving Wappingers Falls and all of Dutchess County
Construction workers are required to wear a hard hat for very good reasons. Even a light tool like a screw driver dropped from a high height hits a body with enough impact to kill or cause serious injury. Falling equipment and materials and getting hit by overhead objects on a building site are responsible for thousands of injuries across the country every year.
If you suffered an injury from falling materials or equipment on a construction job site, you may be entitled to compensation in addition to workers’ compensation benefits. The New York state workplace safety code makes it clear that property owners, general contractors and subcontractors on site may be held liable for paying money damages, if negligence can be proved on their part.
For more than 30 years, the construction accident injury litigation team at Stenger, Diamond & Glass LLP, has been helping injured workers and their families recover full and fair money damages after suffering an injury or losing a loved on in a construction site accident. Investigating the exact cause and liability for injuries from falling objects requires knowledge of job site liability laws and safety requirements. Our team works closely with independent construction industry experts to investigate and prepare your case for maximum settlement or trial. We are proud of our record of obtaining some of the most significant settlements and jury awards in New York on behalf of our clients.
