Workers Compensation Falling Object Injury Claims

Falling objects are particularly dangerous. Injuries caused by falling objects can range from minor to life threatening. Items stacked high against walls or on high shelves in stores, falling objects at construction sites and poorly secured items falling off trucks on highways are some examples of falling object accidents.

Injuries caused by falling objects range from minor cuts and bruises to more serious injuries, such as neck, back or brain injuries, as well as crush injuries. A North Carolina workers’ compensation lawyer from our firm can assist you in pursuing a workers' compensation claim to recover the costs of your medical expenses and lost wages.

Both employees and employers have a responsibility and duty to be careful in the workplace. However, if you are injured by an accident at work in North carolina, you are typically entitled to workers’ comp benefits regardless of who is at fault.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits

If you are injured by a falling object on the job, you may be entitled to (1) Medical Care and Rehabilitation, (2) a portion of your Lost Wages, and (3) Compensation for any Permanent Injury.
