Whether construction workers are building a home, remodeling a business or erecting a skyscraper, they often need to work high above the ground. This elevated work environment leaves contractors, laborers, electricians and other tradesmen in a dangerous position. Construction accidents that involve falls can cause serious injuries, permanent disabilities and even death. At Gelber & O’Connell, LLC, we are a skilled team of lawyers committed to serving the men and women who work on construction sites, helping them recover the compensation they deserve after falls that cause serious injuries.
On a construction site, building supplies and tools can become incredibly dangerous when they are unsecured high above the ground. While working at these heights can be dangerous itself, severe injuries can also be caused to workers far below when items fall from above.
At the Gelber & O’Connell, LLC law firm, we zealously advocate on behalf of workers injured on construction sites, including those struck by falling objects. In addition, there are times when an innocent passerby becomes the victim of falling debris from a construction site. These innocent victims also have potential rights against the owner, general contractor, subcontractors and construction manager, without the additional issue of an employer being involved. Our dedicated attorneys are skilled at holding negligent parties responsible for actions that cause severe injuries and even death to both construction workers themselves and any innocent passersby.
