Ironworkers have one of the top 10 most dangerous jobs in the country. Those in New York are no exception. They often suffer more catastrophic injuries and fatalities than any other construction worker. When these accidents are caused by the negligence of another party – whether that party is a subcontractor from a different company or a tool manufacturer – the injured worker has the right to pursue a personal injury claim.
At the New York City law firm of Paris & Chaikin, PLLC, we aggressively fight for full and fair compensation for injured ironworkers and other individuals. We handle ironworker accident cases involving:
- Falls from heights: Ironworkers frequently suffer serious falls from ladders, scaffolds, steel I-beams and other heights.
- Defective or missing safety gear: Properly maintained safety harnesses, cages and other types of protection are vital.
- Impalement: Some workers are impaled on the unguarded ends of rebar or on forklift tines.
- Other injuries: From defective power tools to falling objects and welding injury, numerous other hazards can cause serious damage.
