Common Construction Site Accident Injuries In The New York City Area
Our homes, businesses and cities are built by the people who work in construction. We need these workers. Yet every day workers are injured doing one of the most dangerous jobs in America. We can help if you or a loved one was hurt:
- In a fall from a height
- By being hit by something falling on them
- In an accident with a crane, forklift, nail gun or cement truck
- By electric shock
- By an explosion, a chemical or a burn
- By slipping or tripping and falling
- By tools or equipment that failed or was defective
- Due to lack of safety controls, supervision or lack of training
If you were hurt due to any type of scaffolding issue your case may fall under New York labor law section 240. In these cases it is not required to show that the owner or contractor was careless to effectively pursue a liability claim.
If you lost a family member or loved one because of an accident or injury that happened on a construction site, speak with an attorney who takes personal injury cases about pursuing a wrongful death claim.
