Accidents & Injuries at Construction Sites
Construction sites are dangerous by nature, even when negligence is not a factor. Workers perform physically demanding tasks using heavy equipment and tools that require specialized training and experience. A single misstep or overlooked safety regulation could cause a serious accident that leads to catastrophic injury or the death of a construction worker.
According to OSHA, the four leading causes of construction worker fatalities are:
- Falls: This may include falls from ladders, scaffolding, wall openings, or floor holes.
- Struck by object: This may include workers who are struck by construction vehicles or flying/falling objects.
- Electrocution: This may include contact with power lines or electrocution caused by faulty or improperly used equipment.
- Caught in/between: This may include trench and structure collapses or similar incidents.
Fault-Based Construction Accident Claims in New York
While many construction accident claims are handled on a no-fault basis because they fall under the jurisdiction of workers’ compensation, which is provided regardless of who is to blame, there are some that require a fault-based approach. If a third party, such as a vendor, manufacturer, or construction site visitor, was to blame for an accident, this may provide grounds for a personal injury lawsuit.
With our extensive trial experience and our resources, our New York construction accident attorneys can help you with a claim involving third-party liability. The fair and swift resolution of your case is essential, and that is why you can trust us to take on only a limited number of cases at a given time.
