Falling Debris Injuries
Injured At Work? Call Our Accident Lawyers In Atlanta.
Construction workers face a number of different hazards every time they step foot on a job site. Among the most dangerous of these is the threat of falling construction debris, including tools and other materials. Even bystanders can suffer injuries if the construction company has not taken sufficient safety measures to keep both workers and pedestrians safe.
Falling debris construction accidents are most commonly caused by the following hazards:
- Tools, like hammers or wrenches, that were not properly secured
- Glass panels or windows that were dropped during installation
- Pieces of wood that are dropped or knocked over during construction
- Concrete that was knocked loose or improperly supported or set

Securing Damages Beyond Workers’ Compensation Benefits
As a construction worker, you may be covered by workers’ compensation insurance — which covers your medical costs and lost wages. If the accident was caused by the negligence of a subcontractor, equipment supplier or another third party, however, you may be able to obtain additional compensation through a third-party personal injury claim. You may also be able to obtain compensation above what you receive from workers’ compensation if your employer violated safety standards.
By filing a third-party injury claim, you may be able to seek compensation for:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional and mental anguish
- Diminished earning capacity
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future loss of wages
