Negligence On New York Construction Sites
Oftentimes, economic considerations and project deadlines are prioritized over keeping a job site safe for workers. As a result, hardworking men and women are exposed to unnecessary dangers that ultimately result in catastrophic injuries or even death.
Owners, contractors, subcontractors, architects and equipment manufacturers all share responsibility for promoting safety on the project site. If any party is negligent or careless, and that carelessness causes an accident, he or she may be held liable for the resulting injuries.
Construction injuries often occur as a result of:
- Unsafe ladders
- Improperly assembled scaffolding
- Forklift rollovers
- Dropped loads from cranes
- Construction debris
- Poorly constructed walls or floors
- Other job site dangers
These accidents often result in severe injuries such as spinal cord damage, traumatic brain injuries, fractured bones requiring surgical repair, amputations and more.
