North Carolina Falling Debris Injury Lawyers

What to Do If You Are Injured on the Job

Heavy machinery accidents, construction vehicle collisions, and falls from scaffolding and ladders are not the only causes of injury on construction sites. In fact, each year, many workers—not just construction workers—are hurt by falling debris. If this happens to you, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits to cover your medical expenses and lost wages. In some cases, you may be able to file a third-party work injury claim to seek both economic and non-economic damages.

At Lanier Law Group, we offer dedicated representation and support in all aspects of workers’ compensation and workplace accident claims. Our North Carolina falling debris lawyers can guide you through the process and work to recover the full compensation you are owed.

Common Accidents That Cause Falling Debris

Falling debris is a relatively common risk on construction sites. However, objects can fall from shelves and other high places at any type of work environment, such as an office building, grocery store, retail space, or factory. If you have been injured by falling debris at your place of work, you most likely have a claim for workers' compensation. Since 1997, Lanier Law Group has helped injured employees just like you. Our North Carolina falling debris lawyers can assist you with your case.

Some of the most common causes of falling debris 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.
  • Cranes: If a crane fails or is not operated responsibly, it can drop heavy debris on pedestrians and workers. Often, this results in head, back, and neck injuries, as well as fatalities.
  • 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.
  • Over-stocked shelves: In retail stores and supermarkets, over-stocked or improperly stocked shelves can lead to shelf collapses, sending items down onto workers and customers below. Objects can also be knocked from over-stocked shelves when another employee reaches up to grab something or adjust a display.

If falling debris has caused you to suffer a job-related injury, our lawyers are ready to help you seek fair compensation. With us, you get a legal team that not only understands your case but that also understands you, too. We proudly provide personalized, one-on-one attention and tailored legal strategies for all our clients.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
