Phoenix Falling Object Injuries Attorney
Were You Seriously Injured By A Falling Object?
Phoenix, like most major cities in the United States, has new construction projects popping up seemingly every day. While this is great for the city as a whole, it also means that there are more hazards around every construction site. One of the most dangerous hazards passersby face is the risk of a falling object striking them. Construction sites aren’t the only places where this can be a risk – almost any unsecured item placed on an elevated surface can become dangerous or even deadly in the right situation.

Common Falling Hazards

- Tools or heavy equipment falling from an elevated construction site
- Loose debris from an elevated construction site
- Bricks or other types of building materials falling from tall buildings
- Items that fall from ledges or balconies
- Collapsing tower cranes
- Objects tossed from a window
