Construction Site Accidents

The construction and remodeling industry have always proven to be a very lucrative enterprise. Whether it is a residential or large scale commercial project, construction indicates growth in the economy.

However, with all this potential construction growth, accidents unfortunately, are always bound to happen. Common construction injuries carelessly result from:
  • Cutting accidents
  • Electrocution
  • Crane accidents
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Collapsed structures
  • Defective machinery
  • Welding accidents
  • Toxic gas accidents
  • Construction site falls

  • Victims of construction site accident are often killed or if they survive they are usually left with catastrophic injuries including traumatic brain injuries, amputations, spinal cord injuries, paraplegia, shattered bones and severe internal injuries, to name but a few.

    While construction companies and contractors are required to inspect each job site and maintain and adhere to the safety standards set out by the State, they are also required to implement safety programs.

    According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics in 2004 alone, 401,000 people suffered non-fatal injuries in industrial accidents on or around construction sites while 1,224 people were killed. Hence why construction related injuries is ranked 3rd in the United States as workers are at far greater risk of serious injury or death.

    Construction cases involve complex liability issues:-

    • The interface between Federal and State Laws as it pertains to the construction industry regulation
    • New York State Worker’s compensation laws which provides immunity to employers.

    • Lawsuits due to construction site accidents are usually very costly to prosecute, especially since the law prohibits from suing your employer.
