Construction Accidents

Practice Area: Construction AccidentsSome of the hardest working men and women in New York work in the construction industry.  Much of the work they do can be very dangerous and when accidents happen, workers are sometimes left with catastrophic injuries that can change the very nature of their life and occupation.  For that reason, New York has enacted specific laws to protect workers and provide them the ability to secure compensation in the event they suffer a serious work-related injury.

Beyond the ability to bring a workers’ compensation claim to cover medical expenses and part of your wages, the law allows many construction workers to bring a lawsuit to compensate them for their pain and suffering, wrongful death, future loss of earnings and other benefits.

At Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, we have the experience, resources and dedication to handle all the legal aspects of personal injury cases resulting from workplace accidents.  You will need a partner during this difficult time and there is no one that will be more aggressive to make sure you get the compensation and benefits that you deserve.

Construction workers can face numerous workplace hazards.  The time pressures put on many of the jobsites can result in a lack of safety measures that create workplace hazards, putting workers at risk and resulting in serious accidents while on the job.

Some of the more common types of construction accidents include:

  • Defective scaffolding and ladders
  • Falling building material
  • Dangerous or defective equipment
  • Crane accidents
  • Fires and explosions
  • Slips, trips and fall accidents
  • Hoisting accidents
  • Exposed trenches
  • Demolition accidents
  • Dangerous jobsites
  • Forklift accidents

New York City has one of the highest numbers of workplace accidents in the country.  Many of the construction site accidents could be prevented if proper safety procedures were followed by contractors, building owners and other workers.  The failure to adhere to proper safety procedures can create liability upon those entities that control the worksite.  The importance of hiring a construction attorney right from the start is vital so that information can be obtained and those negligent for creating the dangerous condition can be held responsible.  Those who work in the construction industry in New York are protected from dangerous or unsafe working conditions under New York Labor Law sections 200, 240 and 241.  Exactly who should be sued in any given construction accident case is best left to an experienced and knowledgeable construction accident lawyer.
