Factors Contributing to Construction Accidents
Construction site accidents can be blamed on any of the following:
- Ladder/scaffolding falls
- Falling objects
- Power tool injuries
- Building, wall and trench collapse
- Unsafe construction, excavation or demolition conditions (pursuant to New York Labor Law 241)
- Unsafe work practices
- Inadequate supervision
- Faulty equipment
- Failure to use safety equipment (i.e. personal fall protection devices)
- Chemical leaks
Such accidents can often result in catastrophic injuries that can lead to partial or total disability with complete loss of earning potential. This type of case requires an attorney with experience in construction accident litigation and thorough knowledge of state and federal regulations covering safe work practices in this industry.
What to Do After Your Work Injury
Construction sites make extremely hazardous work environments. Every year, an extraordinary number of construction workers are killed or injured on the job. Although construction companies are responsible for implementing safety programs and conducting work site inspections, accidents may still occur due to some degree of negligence, violation of safety regulations or unsafe equipment.
As an experienced construction accident lawyer, Ira Maurer can investigate the details of your work injury claim and develop a plan to resolve your case. While you are probably entitled to workers' compensation benefits, you may be able to recover even greater compensation if the cause of your accident can be traced to the negligence of a third party.
Mr. Maurer has the knowledge of state and federal laws that is necessary to handle these oftentimes complex cases. You deserve full compensation after suffering one of these injuries, and our law firm is ready to stand at your side and fight for what is in your best interest.
