Understanding Struck-By Hazards

In the realm of workplace safety, the risks associated with being struck by falling objects are significant and demand attention. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 238 fatalities due to incidents where individuals were struck by falling objects or equipment, excluding powered vehicles, highlighting a critical area for safety improvement. These figures not only underline the lethal potential of such accidents but also underscore the importance of implementing rigorous safety protocols and measures to mitigate these risks. Sometimes, the only recourse is to hire a falling object lawyer to help negotiate and litigate on your behalf.

High-Risk Groups

– Construction Workers & Employees: Struck-by hazards are prevalent in construction and related sectors. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) categorizes these as part of the “Fatal Four,” emphasizing the severe injury and fatality risk. Workers are susceptible to hazards from falling debris, tools, and heavy machinery.


– General Public: Falling object incidents are not exclusive to construction sites. For instance, there are 4 shocking risks that can inflict the general public regarding falling objects:


  – Objects from nearby construction zones

  – Merchandise in retail settings

  – Equipment in entertainment venues or event spaces

  – Items from building exteriors or balconies

Potential Injuries from Falling Objects

Victims can suffer from various injuries including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage, burns, electrocution, or crushing injuries that might lead to amputation. Lifelong, permanent damages can significantly impair a person’s ability to live a happy and productive life, so securing rightful compensation through a falling object lawyer is sometimes the best option.  

Liability in Falling Object Accidents

Identifying responsible parties requires a detailed investigation. Potentially liable parties include:


– Contractors or subcontractors failing to secure tools or adhere to safety protocols.

– Crane companies with poorly maintained equipment.

– Property owners not ensuring a safe environment.


These failures can lead to legal liability for the injuries caused.
