Falling Object Injury Lawyer Seeking Compensation For Victims in Miami
With the city of Miami expanding at such a rapid rate, there are countless construction zones posted all over. Seeing new construction in Miami is a beautiful thing, especially because it creates new jobs and improves the economy. However, if you work on one of these construction sites, you may be injured by a falling object.
There are safety precautions that must be followed in construction zones, like wearing a hardhat. But even these safety precautions will not always protect you from falling object injuries. In the case that an injury occurs as a result of a falling object, don’t hesitate to contact attorney Amanda Demanda to get the compensation that you deserve.
How Common Are Falling Object Accidents?
Being struck by an object is actually one of the leading causes of death in the construction industry according to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA). It is one of the “Fatal Four” causes of construction site fatalities in the U.S.
Falling objects are extremely dangerous because they typically hit the head, which can cause devastating traumatic brain injuries. When an object falls, there is pressure and speed behind it that can make the injury just that much worse.
Some victims of falling object injuries will recover in a matter of days or weeks, whereas others do not ever fully recover. Their lives can be changed forever depending on the severity of the injury.
If you have been injured, it’s important to speak to falling object injury attorney Amanda Demanda about your legal options.
What Are Examples of Falling Object Cases?
Falling object injuries can take place in a variety of settings, but the most common places are either on construction sites or in work environments like factory work zones. There are many factors that can put employees or bystanders at risk, including:
- Failing to properly secure equipment and supplies when transporting them around the work environment.
- Cranes or machinery knocking supplies out of place.
- Defective tools and machinery.
- Improperly stacked materials in the work environment.
- Missing signs or barriers around dangerous materials.
- Failure to adhere to OSHA guidelines.
In any case, if an injury has been caused by a falling object, contacting a personal injury attorney in Miami will be an important step in receiving the compensation that you deserve.
How Can A Falling Object Attorney Help Your Case?
If you have been injured by a falling object, you may be able to recover compensation by either filing a personal injury or workers’ compensation claim. Amanda Demanda will review the details of your case to determine which type of claim you should apply for and how to maximize your compensation.
If you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, you will not need to prove negligence in order to secure compensation. But if you file a personal injury claim, you will need to prove that you were injured as a result of another party’s negligence.
In order to prove that a party was at fault (whether it’s a construction company, another coworker, or a machinery manufacturer), your lawyer will organize your case to clearly communicate these points on your behalf:
- The other party owed you a duty of care.
- The other party somehow breached their duty of care.
- The breach caused your injuries.
- The breach of duty resulted in whatever damages you are now fighting for.
By proving these points, attorney Amanda Demanda can help you recover the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
