Hit By a Falling Object on a Job Site?
We Can Help You Pursue Fair Compensation in Kansas City
Falling object accidents take place on construction sites with alarming frequency. These catastrophic accidents can cause brain injury, spinal injury and even death. Construction sites are extremely hazardous even when safety regulations are followed properly. When an object falls from a high structure, it can rapidly gain speed resulting in brain trauma, blindness, amputation and other tragic injuries. Even when no one is under the falling object, it may impact another object or section of the construction site and cause injurious fragments to travel through the air.
Construction accident claims can be complex and require the assistance of a highly skilled personal injury attorney. At Meyerkord, Russell & Hergott, our firm has helped countless clients obtain the full compensation that they were due. We will aggressively challenge insurance companies seeking to reduce the value our clients' claims and do everything possible to ensure that their rights are safeguarded. Having a
personal injury attorney thoroughly review your case on an immediate basis will help you to discover what compensation could be sought, both through workers' compensation as well as claims filed against any liable third party.
Hold the Negligent Parties Accountable
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is a federal agency that enforces a number of regulations meant to mitigate falling object accidents on construction sites. Construction site managers are charged with seeing that these regulations are followed. When construction companies and construction site managers cut corners or fail to keep safety regulations enforced, it may be grounds for a construction accident lawsuit. Even a small object such as a screw or bolt can cause serious and catastrophic injuries, such as traumatic brain injury, when dropped from a height. If you have been injured on a construction site by a falling object, allow a highly experienced attorney to review your case on an immediate basis.
