Falling Objects

Were You Injured By A Falling Object?

Warehouses are some of the most hazardous workplaces. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), "more than 145,000 people work in over 7,000 warehouses" nationwide, and "the fatal injury rate for the warehousing industry is higher than the national average for all industries." Falling objects are one of many hazards in warehouses.

Falling object injuries are particularly common in big-box discount stores, in their storage rooms and in their distribution centers. Construction sites are another example of work sites where fall injuries are an occupational hazard. Heavy construction material being hoisted by cranes and lifts can impale or crush workers when cables snap or grabbing mechanisms fail. Even in relatively calm and well-organized office environments, objects may fall from high shelves in supply closets or pop machines may fall over in break rooms.

Whatever the circumstances of your workplace injury due to a falling object, it is important that you consult with an experienced and knowledgeable workers' compensation attorney as soon as possible. If a loved one was killed due to a falling object injury at a Kentucky or Tennessee work site, call or email the Law Office of Donald D. Zuccarello to schedule a conversation with a lawyer. We are prepared to advise you of your rights, represent you in appeals in case your workers' compensation claim is denied and investigate to determine whether there is a potential third-party liability claim.
