New York Falling Hazards Attorneys
Construction sites are often full of potential falling hazards that may lead to severe injuries for anyone struck by a falling object. These hazards can often be avoided, however. If a general contractor or property manager fails to address these safety concerns, they may be held responsible for the cost of these injuries.
If your injuries were caused by a falling hazard that could have been addressed before the accident, we may be able to help you pursue a legal claim for financial compensation. For a no-cost evaluation regarding your options in moving forward with your case, contact the New York construction accident attorneys of Hach & Rose, LLP, by calling (212) 779-0057.

Falling Hazard Negligence
Falling hazards can be prevented through sufficient safety inspections and following the proper safety protocols. Failing to observe basic safety standards or to provide appropriate protective equipment can result in severe injuries due to falling hazards, leading to traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, or other significant concerns. The following negligent acts may result in these hazards causing injuries:
- Leaving tools on scaffolding
- Failing to properly secure scaffolding platforms
- Failing to secure materials on a roof
- Failing to clear away weathered or rotten materials from high platforms
These safety mistakes can cause severe injuries that may require emergency treatment, which can prove very expensive for injured workers. A successful civil lawsuit can ensure that this does not become a distressing financial burden. Hach & Rose, LLP has had decades of experience working on cases involving the above conditions and more.
A general contractor or property owner’s failure to provide safe working conditions can leave you injured and struggling with unexpected expenses and difficulties. As with all personal injury cases, falling hazard-related cases carry a statute of limitations in New York, so it is in your best interest to contact an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your legal options. We are here to help.
