Causes Of Falling Debris Injuries
There are many causes of falling debris injuries, including:
- Defective workplace equipment: If a ladder or scaffold falls, debris can fall from a height and seriously injure those below.
- Failure to follow OSHA standards: Lack of adequate safety precautions may be the most common reason for falling debris accidents.
For any injury occurring in the workplace, fault is not an issue. Workers’ compensation in New Jersey is a no-fault system, which means that even if you are the one to blame for the accident that caused your injury, you should still be able to receive financial awards from workers’ compensation. Often, for the more serious and catastrophic injuries, workers’ comp does not cover the costs that you need to pay, not to mention the pain and suffering you have endured. If there is a third party involved in causing the accident, we can bring a third-party claim as well to increase your compensation.
