Greenville Workers' Compensation Lawyers Fight for You
A North Carolina law firm committed to helping you every step of the way
Heavy machinery, construction vehicles and ladders are not the only causes of injury on construction sites. Each year, many workers are hurt by falling debris. If this happens to you, you may be entitled to workers' comp benefits to cover your medical expenses and lost wages. We at Lanier Law Group, P.A. offer comprehensive workers' compensation support. Our Greenville lawyers will guide you through the process until you receive compensation.
Common accidents which cause falling debris
If you have been injured by falling debris at a job site in Durham or elsewhere in North Carolina, you have a claim for workers' compensation. Since 1995, Lanier Law Group, P.A. has helped many employees just like you. Our North Carolina workers' compensation attorneys have found that the common causes of a falling debris accident include:
- Unsafe scaffolding: Even if workers are not on the scaffold when it fails, there may be equipment and debris that can fall on workers below.
- Unsafe ladders: An unsafe ladder poses obvious dangers to the worker who’s climbing it. But even if no one is on the ladder, it can cause injuries when it falls. Tools and buckets attached to the ladder and the ladder itself can hit workers in Greenville or anywhere else in North Carolina.
- Cranes: If a crane fails or is not operated responsibly, it can drop heavy debris on pedestrians and workers. The result often is head, back and neck injuries.
- Controlled explosions: When explosives are used in demolition, every precaution must be taken to ensure workers are clear of the blast radius. Flying debris from an explosion is an all-too-common cause of serious injuries to workers.

With us, you get a lawyer who not only understands your case: you get a lawyer who understands you, too.
