New York City Falling Object Injury Attorney
New York Attorneys Representing Those Injured by Falling Objects
Representing victims injured by falling objects on construction sites in The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and throughout New York
Falling objects on a construction site can be the cause of some of the most serious injuries, including paralysis, and can even result in a wrongful death. The attorneys of The Orlow Firm are experienced in representing individuals who have been injured by falling objects at construction sites and elsewhere in The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and throughout New York.
A traumatic brain injury can be caused by an item as small as a bolt. If you or a loved one has been injured by a falling object, an attorney can assert your rights.

Depending on the height from which the bolt fell, the speed or velocity the bolt gains while falling may be a crucial factor in your case. If the falling item was as large as a tool or heavy piece of equipment the injury could be severe, and may even result in a wrongful death. If you or a loved one was injured by a falling object, you should discuss your case with one of our construction site and falling object accident attorneys.
We are available to represent you in a falling object or construction site accident case, including:
- Unsecured or falling equipment
- Scaffolding accidents
- Forklift accidents
- Crane accidents
- Wrongful death
- Burns, electrocution, and explosions
- Improper equipment
- Failing security measures
- Falling accidents
- Trench collapses
- Construction injuries and death
- Machinery defects
- Workers’ compensation
It is hard to predict why such an accident may occur. Workers may not have been properly trained, or the site may not be managed up to legal standards. If you have been injured by a falling object at a construction site or elsewhere, you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your right to recover compensation. Even if you are receiving workers’ compensation benefits, you may be eligible for additional damages if a third party (someone other than your employer or a coworker) caused your injuries. Examples of third parties include manufacturers, a subcontractors, and landlords. Settlements and verdicts awarded to victims of construction accidents caused by third-party negligence are typically much greater than workers’ compensation.
At The Orlow Firm, we take all cases on a "contingent fee" basis. A contingent fee basis means that the attorneys are paid only at the time when, and if, they recover money damages for the client. A contingent fee thereby allows an injured person with little or no financial resources to obtain competent legal assistance. At the time recovery is obtained, the attorneys’ fee is a percentage of the award in the case. If there is no recovery, there will be no attorneys’ fees.*
