Construction Site Falling Debris Accidents

Injured? Hire a Philadelphia Construction Accident Attorney

Construction sites oftentimes require workers to perform various tasks at extreme heights. Due to the nature of this type of work, there is always the risk that objects such as tools, equipment, or debris may fall from where an employee is working and strike nearby workers or pedestrians. Depending on the size of the object and the height from which it fell, individuals struck by this debris can suffer serious injuries including broken bones, brain damage, spinal cord damage, and possible death.

Causes of Falling Debris Injuries

While a nearly infinite number of circumstances can contribute to these types of accidents, falling debris injuries frequently occur due to some form of negligence or oversight by the construction company. Construction sites are oftentimes located in the middle of highly populated areas, making it crucial that construction companies take steps to ensure their presence is well-known to passersby.

Injuries from falling debris can be caused by any of the following:

  • Insufficient barricades
  • Lack of warning signs
  • Failing to secure tools and equipment
  • Failing to inspect equipment
  • Inadequate supervision
  • Ignoring safety protocols

Depending on the circumstances, injured pedestrians and other non-employees may have grounds to seek compensation from a number of liable parties, such as the jobsite’s general contractor, subcontractors, or even the owner of the property. While workers who are injured by falling debris may only be able to seek financial recovery under their workers’ compensation insurance, they may be able to seek additional compensation in the event that the accident should be caused by someone other than their employer. Successful claimants may be compensated for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and rehabilitation costs. In the event that falling debris should result in a person’s death, the decedent’s family members may also be entitled to collect wrongful death benefits.
