Construction Accident Lawyers

No fee unless we win
we work hard for you

The United States Occupational Health and Safety Administration reported that 1 out of 5 deaths that occur in the workplace every year involve a construction worker. In the United States, there are an estimated 1,000 construction workers who die every year as a cause of injuries in the workplace. In New York City, there were 75 deaths that were work related in the construction industry in 2012. Construction accidents are common, so it is important to understand your rights if you are a construction worker who has been injured on the job.

In New York, there are special circumstances that are in place to protect construction workers who face dangerous conditions while working. Construction workers are commonly subjected to dangerous circumstances and conditions that could lead to serious injury or death. If a construction worker is injured on the job, he or she is protected by workers compensation. However, in most instances workers compensation is not enough to provide for those who have suffered from serious injures.

There are many times when construction sites have several employers, which include contractors and subcontractors. There are times when of these employers will be responsible for the injury to a construction worker who is employed by another employer on the construction site. If a construction worker has been injured by a third-party contractor or subcontractor, then negligence law states an injured employee may file a lawsuit. However, in order to file a lawsuit the worker must prove that third-party was responsible for putting a construction worker in dangerous conditions that resulted in the worker’s injury and the third-party was in control and understood the area was dangerous.

In New York, undocumented construction workers are also able to file construction accident lawsuits. Even if an individual is not working in the country legally, he or she should still contact an attorney. If you file a civil lawsuit, then it will not have an impact on your ability to stay in the United States.

Examples of Common Construction Workplace Accidents
In Manhattan, there is a constant need for construction. With all the construction that takes place, there is an increased risk for accidents. Here are some common examples of construction workplace accidents in Manhattan:

Scaffolding Issues
It is important that scaffolding is inspected, maintained, and kept secure for the protection of construction workers and pedestrians. When scaffolding has problems or is faulty, it can result to serious injury and even death. Minor scaffolding accidents can even result in a worker being permanently disabled and not able to earn a decent wage.

Falls
There are many construction sites that have equipment on scaffolds and roofs. When the equipment is not safely secured, the equipment can fall on workers, which can cause serious injures such as a traumatic brain injury. Furthermore, when objects fall from roofs and scaffolds, there is a risk for a wide range of other injuries.

Worksites That are not Safe
To prevent accidents and injuries from occurring on construction sites, there should be constant maintenance. When proper maintenance is not practiced at construction sites, it can be a potential hazard for the safety of construction worker. For example, equipment and debris can be a cause of slip and fall accidents, which can result in serious injuries such as spine and neck injuries, broken bones, and more.

Equipment Accidents
Construction vehicles, such as forklifts and cranes, should always be properly maintained. When construction vehicles are not properly taken care of, it can lead to a wide range of injuries.

What it do if You are Injured in Construction Accident
If you are a construction worker who has been injured on the job in Manhattan, it is vital to contact a construction accident lawyer who has the experience to help you move forward. Construction workers are in a dangerous working environment. Construction accidents can happen quickly without any warning. Sadly, these accidents can cause individuals to be permanently or seriously injured. Construction workers who have been injured are entitled to receive compensation for their injuries.
