Los Angeles Construction Site Injuries from Falling Objects
Falling objects are a common source of injuries at construction sites, to construction workers as well as to visitors to these sites and passersby. A falling object may strike a victim in the head or anywhere on the body, causing serious injury at the site of impact or causing him or her to fall of scaffolding or a ladder and therefore become seriously injured. Depending on the particular event, a falling object may cause traumatic injuries or even the death of the victim.

Avoiding Falling Object Injuries at Construction Sites
There are specific safety precautions that any construction company should take at a residential or commercial construction site. However, because construction may involve altering an existing building or creating a new structure, there is automatically the possibility that an object may fall from any part of the site, even if safety regulations are followed. Even if workers are out of the way of objects that may potentially fall, equipment or exposed electrical wires may be impacted by an object and therefore cause a fire or other type of accident. Even with a hard hat or other safety equipment, a worker may still suffer injury by a falling object.For help with your claim, contact a Los Angeles falling object injury attorney at our offices today.
