Suffered Construction Site Injury? Contact Bronx Construction Accident Lawyers
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 scaffolding.
- Fires and explosions.
- Heavy machinery negligence.
- Site excavation and trench collapses.
- Violations of OSHA regulations.
