If you live in Dallas (especially around Uptown), you’ve probably noticed the ridiculous uptick in new construction projects. While the vast majority of these projects are well-contained and do not necessarily put pedestrians in harms way, injuries and deaths caused by falling construction debris are surprisingly common. According to OSHA, being struck by an object is actually the second leading cause of all wrongful deaths on construction sites.
If you or a loved one has been injured due to the negligence of a construction worker, you have every right to seek compensation for your related losses. This includes any medical expenses, time away from work, as well as compensation for pain and suffering.
While the construction company will do everything they can to deflect liability and make the claims process as difficult as possible, that’s exactly why personal injury law firms like ours exist. All we do is help injured victims (and the families of those wrongfully killed) hold people accountable for their negligence, and we handle these types of cases on a contingency basis.
We are here to help with the entire claims process from beginning to end, and under no circumstances will you owe us a penny in attorneys fees unless (and until) we win your case and put money in your pocket.
Falling objects at construction sites are both foreseeable and preventable.
Not only can pedestrians be hit by falling construction debris such as concrete and rebar, but also by falling tools, equipment, or even scaffolding. These types of falling objects are not only foreseeable, they are also entirely preventable when the construction company enacts simple safety measures.
If a construction company fails to properly secure the area and/or take preventative measures such as using debris nets, toe boards, and personal protective equipment, they are simply opening themselves up to a negligence claim should someone become injured as a result.
Regardless of the circumstances, objects falling from height can be incredibly dangerous to workers and pedestrians alike. The focus of any construction safety officer should always be on preventing these objects from falling in the first place.
While passive safety measures are incredibly important, they cannot (and should not) be relied upon to prevent these types of accidents. Just like OSHA requires personal fall protection measures for workers at height, similar measures need to be taken in regard to tools and equipment.
How our Dallas attorneys can help.
We understand the situation you’re in, as we’ve helped countless people just like you over the last 23 years we’ve been in business.

Without an attorney on your side, the construction company (or their insurance company) will do everything in their power to delay, deflect, or deny liability. Their goal is to save their company money, and you can be certain that they have a team of attorneys actively working to discredit your claim.
Our job is to handle all communication with the defendant moving forward, to investigate your claims, prepare your case, and to advocate on your behalf for every penny you deserve. We do this for no out-of-pocket cost, as we take all personal injury and wrongful death cases on a no-win, no-fee basis.
