New York’s Construction Accident Wrongful Death Attorneys
Has A Loved One Been Killed In A Construction Or Workplace Accident?
Construction sites are some of the most dangerous work environments in New York City. Accidents involving heavy machinery, large equipment, hand tools, electricity and falling objects can lead to significant injuries and often are fatal. Many workers are tragically killed when caught in and compressed or crushed by a collapsing structure or equipment.
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), nearly 1,000 workers are killed each year on our nation’s construction sites. That accounts for one out of every five workplace deaths each year, and although construction sites are hazardous, many of these wrongful deaths could have been avoided.
Construction’s Fatal Four
After highway collisions, the leading cause of worker deaths in the United Sates is construction accidents. The “fatal four” causes of deaths on construction sites are:
- Being struck by an object
- Being caught in or between heavy objects or machinery
If someone you care about has died on a New York construction site, you may be entitled to compensation for his or her wrongful death, pain and suffering, and lost income.
