Falling Debris and Deadly Injuries Our Goal: Winning & Winning Big

Cell Phone Tower Accident Injury Lawyer: Falling Debris and Deadly Injuries

As cell phone towers become ubiquitous in the United States, severe and even fatal injuries caused by falling debris is more commonplace. During the past decade as cell phone towers have proliferated in urban, suburban, and rural parts of the country, hundreds of people have been injured or killed in cell phone tower accidents. A significant percentage of these cell phone tower accident injury victims were struck by falling debris of different types. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, cell phone tower accidents involving falling debris and equipment represents one of the most common causes of tower-related injuries in the country.

Cell Phone Tower Workers: The Country’s Most Dangerous Occupation

The head of OSHA once remarked that cell phone tower workers are involved in the most dangerous occupation in the United States. The fact is that at the time the OSHA leader made this statement, cell phone tower accidents were about half what they have become today. Workers injured and killed by falling debris have more than doubled during that time period.

Typically, at a cell tower worksite, there are two cohorts of workers. There are those that climb the tower – aptly named climbers but known among themselves as “tower dogs.” There are also ground crew workers around a tower as well. All of these workers are in constant harm’s way.

When it comes to falling debris, ground crew workers are particularly susceptible to injury. With that said, tower dogs aren’t completely safe from injury or even death by falling debris either. Equipment, cables, and even massive pieces of metal are known to break loose and impact with a tower climber, causing severe or even fatal injuries.

Cell Phone Tower Construction and Repair: Deadly Risks to Passersby

Others beyond work crew members are at risk of cell phone tower injury and death. The reality is that when a cell phone tower is in need of repair or maintenance, time is nearly always of the essence. The fact is that when a cell phone tower is offline, a telecom company literally loses thousands of dollars per second. Thus, a repair crew will be dispatched to a tower no matter the time of day or the fact that members of the public will be going to and fro around what is a truly hazardous worksite at the same time.

Every year, innocent members of the public are struck with falling debris from cell towers. These types of cell phone tower accidents oftentimes result in severe and even permanent injury. Sadly, with alarming regularity, members of the public who were otherwise minding their own business and going about their days lose their lives in cell phone tower accidents involving falling debris.

Your Rights in a Cell Phone Tower Injury Case

OSHA officials contend that an astounding 96 percent of all cell phone tower accidents were preventable. In other words, they are caused by negligent acts that simply didn’t need to happen in the first place.
