Falling objects are a deadly hazard at construction sites. A hard hat provides only so much protection when a heavy object drops from a height.
I am attorney Bart Durham. If you or someone you love has been struck by a falling object at a construction site, I offer a free initial consultation to discuss your legal options. From my office in Nashville, my legal team represents construction workers throughout Tennessee who have been injured as the result of negligence.
Lawyers Representing Construction Workers Hit By Falling Objects
Many assume that workers' compensation is the only remedy for a worker injured in a construction accident. While workers' compensation helps you maintain your income and pays for your medical bills while you recover, it does not compensate you for everything you have lost, and it provides no compensation for your pain and suffering. If you are injured as the result of someone else's negligence, you may be able to obtain additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party.
Employers are required to be proactive in protecting construction workers from injuries caused by falling objects. That includes:
- Securing materials, tools and other equipment on elevated platforms when those items are not in use
- Barring employees from working below other workers unless they are provided protection from falling objects
- Requiring all workers to wear hard hats
If you were hit by a falling object at a construction site, I will work with my team of Nashville attorneys to go through every detail related to your construction accident and seek all of the compensation to which you are entitled.
