Toronto Falling Equipment Injuries Lawyers
In cities and metropolises, construction sites are everywhere. They are so common we often don’t even realize when we are in dangerous proximity to the hazards of construction zones—one of which is falling tools and equipment. Because these areas are highly dangerous and often found frequently in populated areas, the necessary cautions, inspections, specifications, and regulations must be taken without exception. Sadly, improperly fastened or unsecured equipment causes critical injury to the unsuspecting public at an alarming rate.
At high elevations, even the smallest objects cause serious blunt force trauma if they fall. If you have been hurt by falling construction equipment, the legal team at Mazin & Associates, PC understands these injuries require intensive medical treatment and rehabilitation. Unfortunately, most accidents involving falling objects result in some sort of head injury or brain damage. While coming to terms with your accident can be overwhelming right now, you are not helpless in dealing with your injuries. Our falling equipment injuries lawyers can fight for every avenue of restitution from your accident, including those from your medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation, pain and suffering, and more.
Negligence on Construction Sites
The main areas at the highest risk of falling equipment and debris include below scaffolding, near high-rise construction sites, and on the sides of buildings undergoing renovation. Many falling objects are caused by an oversight in safety precautions, such as:
- Lack of barricades or insufficient distance between pedestrians and construction sites
- Insufficient warning signs that alert pedestrians of falling objects
- Failure to secure tools or other equipment
At Mazin & Associates, PC, our legal team believes when simple safety standards aren’t abided by, the party responsible deserves to be held accountable for any resulting injuries. These are accidents that could have been prevented by the most basic safety precautions and failing to submit to these regulations constitutes negligence.
