It seems that there is nonstop construction throughout New York. Almost every street has a building or home that is under construction or renovation. Construction sites are some of the most dangerous workplaces, even for experienced workers, carpenters, masons, plumbers and electricians.
Construction workers use ladders, scaffolds, cranes, forklifts and other devices that put them up high off the ground to complete a task. This creates a dangerous work environment and falls are frequent occurrences. These falls can lead to severe and catastrophic injuries such as brain injuries, broken or fractured bones, spinal injuries, torn ligaments and, in some cases, even death.
These injuries can devastate a family emotionally and financially. Medical bills can pile up, coupled with lost or reduced income and, of course, pain and suffering.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a construction site accident as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.
If proper Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations had been implemented, then most falls on construction site could have been avoided. Contractors, site supervisors, property owners, building management and construction companies are typically responsible for instituting proper safety measures on construction sites.
All too often, cutting corners or poor training can lead to work site accidents. Improper use of ladders and scaffolds, badly maintained equipment, and blocked or cluttered pathways can all lead to falls on New York construction sites, which result in significant injuries.
