Types of Construction Accident

Some workplace environments are simply more dangerous than others. Naturally,
construction sites are among the most dangerous workplace settings in
the country, and for obvious reasons. From
heavy machinery to
high scaffolding, a construction site can pose significant risks to workers who put in
hours of grueling, physical labor on a daily basis.

New York, then you must
contact a New York construction accident attorney immediately. Mitchell D. Kessler has helped clients
recover millions in verdicts and settlements. If workplace negligence or failure to implement an efficient safety protocol
may have been a direct cause of your accident or injury, he can be trusted
to take necessary legal action to right the wrongs that have been forced upon you.
Involved in a construction accident in New York?
Construction site employers, site managers, and other overseers are required
to ensure safe working conditions for all construction site employees
and innocent bystanders. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. Due
to oversights or egregious negligence, construction site accidents occur
very frequently and can cause victims serious injury or fatality.
Various types of accidents may include:
Equipment-related accidents - construction workers can get caught between heavy equipment, or could
suffer extreme injuries due to equipment rollovers, poor maintenance,
Negligence-related accidents - construction sites are required to have some sort of safety and emergency
protocol to ensure the complete safety of on-site employees.
Trench-collapse accidents - construction workers are exposed to trenches on a daily basis. Whether
they are working in, around, or over a trench, the collapse of a trench
could result in fatal injuries.
Work-zone accidents - work zones are frequently seen throughout New York City. From roadside
construction sites to highway road closures, work zones are generally
roadway improvement projects that require both day and night work. Unfortunately,
many drivers do not pay attention or drive recklessly through work zone
areas, causing catastrophic injuries to innocent workers and other bystanders.
Labor law violations and accidents - according to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA),
there are several labor laws and safety standards that must be met. If
a construction worksite owner has failed to meet these strict guidelines,
the firm can determine if the labor law violation played a direct role
in the extent of your injury.
New York State's Labor Law sets construction workers' rights.

Don't try to go through this process alone. Many times, workplace owners

in order to try and deny you of the full amount of money that you deserve. With our
New York construction accident lawyer at your side, however, you can
level the playing field and help make certain that the opposition plays
by the rules and pays for the injustice they may have caused you.
