New York City Construction Accident Attorneys

Construction work is a dangerous business, but it does not mean that construction workers are not entitled to a safe work environment like any other profession. If proper safety precautions are implemented, the risk of injuries and fatalities can be minimized. Sadly, this does not always happen. Construction accidents throughout the country, especially in New York City, have become regular occurring events.

In 2005, there were 1,226 fatal construction accidents reported, the most of any industry sector. This year so far, New York City has already experienced some of the most devastating accidents that this country has had to face, including the Manhattan crane collapse at 303 E. 51st Street on March 15th which resulted in seven deaths and a falsified Department of Building report and the March 11th wall collapsed at a commercial building at 791 Glenmore Avenue, Brooklyn, NY which resulted in one fatality.

If you were injured in a construction accident in New York City, you may be entitled to compensation. The New York City Construction Accident Attorneys at the law firm of Todd Strier understand the frustration and pain one goes through after a disastrous event, and will do everything possible to use the law to protect your rights. Contact our New York City injury attorneys for a Free Case Evaluation today.

Common causes for injuries at construction sites in New York City include:

  • Defective Equipment
  • Crane Collapse
  • Falls From Unsafe Scaffolds
  • Poor Judgment Made By Other Workers or Owners
  • Being Hit By Falling Objects
  • Electrocution
  • Exposure to Chemicals

By state law, general contractors and owners are responsible for keeping their work site safe. Failure to do so allows injured workers to seek compensation for injuries, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other expenses that may have occurred as a result of the accident. However, contractors may not be the only party liable for your injuries. Other parties that could be responsible include equipment manufacturers, architects, property owners, and third party contractors. In many of these cases, it is not always easy to determine who is a fault for your injuries. This is why it is important to consult with attorneys who are experienced in handling these complex personal injury cases.
