Why You Should Contact a Construction Accident Lawyer if You’ve Suffered a Construction Site Injury in the Bronx…

Just about everywhere you turn in NYC, there seems to be something under construction. As a result, pedestrians and workers alike are often at risk of being injured due to a construction mishap. And while the rise in construction in New York City is great for the economy, there is a direct correlation in the increase of serious injuries and the number of accidental deaths.

In fact, the city’s Department of Buildings data shows there was a 15 percent increase in the number of construction-related injuries between 2016 and 2017 alone. The idea that construction site related serious injuries must rise as a result of the construction boom in recent years is unacceptable.

Common Causes of Construction Site Related Accidents Include:

– Falls from roofs
– Electric shock
– Falling objects
– Crane collapse
– Defective machinery
– Defective or unsafe tools
– Falls from ladders and scaffolds
– Fires and explosions
– Heavy machinery negligence
– Site excavation and trench collapses
– Violations of OSHA regulations

New York construction site injuries can be very serious in nature. Some of the most common injuries include back and spinal injuries, burns, fractured limbs, vision loss, traumatic brain injuries, loss of limbs, and even death. If you have suffered these or other serious injuries at a construction site you deserve strong representation from an experienced legal team that will fight for your full recovery. Speak to a lawyer regarding your construction related accident and injuries and find out if you are entitled to file a liability lawsuit against the company or person at fault.
