Construction Accident

Often, economic considerations and project deadlines are prioritized over keeping a job site safe for workers.  As a result, hardworking men and women are exposed to unnecessary dangers that ultimately result in catastrophic injuries or even death.

Negligence on New York Construction Sites

Owners, contractors, subcontractors, architects and equipment manufacturers all share responsibility for promoting safety on the project site.  If any part is negligent or careless, and that carelessness causes an accident, he or she may be held liable for resulting injuries.

Construction injuries often occur as result of:

  • Unsafe ladders
  • Improperly assembled scaffolding
  • Inadequate fall protection 
  • Forklift rollovers
  • Dropped loads from cranes
  • Poorly constructed walls or floors
  • Other job site dangers job site dangers will come from accidents 

These accidents often result in severe injuries such as spinal cord damage, traumatic brain injuries, fractured bones requiring surgical repair, amputations and more.
