Types and Causes of Construction Site Accidents
A wide range of accidents can occur at worksites involving construction, demolition, or heavy labor. To discover who is truly at fault for the accident, you need a seasoned New York City construction accident lawyer who is willing to get his hands dirty to make your case against the right parties.
Negligence is invariably the root cause of many types of devastating worksite accidents, including accidents involving:
- Falls from ladders, roofs, or ledges
- Falls from scaffolding
- Impacts from falling objects
- Lack of proper safety equipment
- Unsafe tools or machinery
- Trips, slips, and falls on work debris
- Inadequate workspace lighting
- Negligence of general contractors or other trades
- Violations of Federal O.S.H.A and New York State labor law regulations
Often, when a construction worker is injured, he or she will seek workers’ compensation benefits through his or her employer. Workers’ compensation should cover the cost of your medical bills and a portion of your lost wages. However, workers’ compensation will not cover or otherwise make up for the harm and loss associated with your permanent pain, suffering, or life-changing disability; nor will workers’ compensation insurance nearly pay for the entirety of your future lost earnings or future earning capacity. We can file a lawsuit against the owner and/or general contractor of the worksite on which you were injured to obtain for you the full compensation you deserve for the entirety of your injuries, suffering, and loss. Our New York City construction accident lawyer is on your side.
