Hurt from a falling object at a work site-who's at fault?

Construction sites can be dangerous, especially in a place full of skyscrapers, like New York City. There is a significant danger that falling objects will cause serious harm when construction is being done on buildings that are several stories tall.

Even small objects, like a dropped power tool or shard of glass, can cause serious injury.
