New York & Long Island Construction Accident Attorneys

Because of the inherently dangerous nature of almost all construction sites, construction accidents continue to occur on a daily basis, despite numerous state and federal safety laws and regulations that have been enacted to protect construction workers.  Construction companies, contractors, and developers have a legal obligation to provide a safe working environment, and ensure that all employees are given adequate safety training and that safety protocol is followed at all times.  If a construction worker is injured or wrongfully killed while on the job, the construction company, contractor, and/or developer may be held liable for damages.  If you have been injured in a construction accident in New York City or Long Island, it’s important to seek legal representation right away. An experienced New York construction accident lawyer can help you prepare your case, and recover damages for your pain, suffering, and financial hardship.

There are countless potential hazards and dangers inherent in almost every construction site.  It’s important for all construction workers to exercise extreme caution, and keep their eyes open for any hazardous conditions or dangerous situations that could lead to a construction accident. Construction accidents can result from a number of circumstances, including:

  • Reckless behavior or misconduct
  • Negligence
  • Falling from heights or elevations
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Roof collapses
  • Trench collapses
  • Structure failure
  • Falling objects
  • Defective or malfunctioning equipment
  • Defective or malfunctioning tools
  • Electrocutions
  • Explosions
  • Exposure to toxic materials or chemicals
  • Slip, trip, and fall accidents
  • Inadequate warning signs
  • Inadequate safety training or guidelines
  • Failure to implement and/or enforce safety guidelines

Workers involved in construction accidents often face severe, painful, and debilitating injuries. Construction injuries can be brought on by one accident, or by repetitive activity or exposure. Common injuries sustained in a construction accident include:  

  • Head trauma
  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Arthritis
  • Respiratory problems
  • Back injuries
  • Stress injuries
  • Paralysis
