Falling Materials on Construction Sites

Falling Materials on Construction Sites

Construction sites constitute inherently dangerous work environments. Under New York law, employers such as developers, property owners, and contractors have a duty to provide a safe working environment on a construction site and to take adequate precautions to prevent materials from falling on workers. When workers are not protected from falling objects and are hurt contractors and developers may be held accountable.

At the law firm of Rosenblum and Partners, LLP., we limit our practice to only representing injured people. Our Albany attorneys have the experience and resources to fight for maximum compensation for workers who have been injured and the families of those who have been killed by falling materials on construction sites.

Defective Construction Rigging Systems in Albany

Our experienced personal injury and workplace injury law firm handles cases involving:

  • Falling building materials such as roofing, structural steel pieces, piping systems, construction debris and electrical components
  • Defective scaffolding, ladders, cables, lanyards, harnesses and fall arrest systems
  • Improper rigging or crane operation that causes workers or materials to fall
  • Unguarded electricity
  • Failing to provide eye protection on a construction site allowing a traumatic eye injury

We also routinely handle cases where contractors, subcontractors and other workers on construction sites are injured or killed because there are inadequate safety programs in place, including lack of training and supervision. This often involves failure to follow New York State and Federal construction safety regulations. There is an extensive series of State and Federal regulations which are designed to anticipate and provide contractors and project owners with safety rules to prevent most types of foreseeable construction accidents. These rules constitute a detailed check list designed to create a safe construction work environment with a zero tolerance for worker injury.
