New York City Construction Litigation
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), falls from scaffolding alone result in approximately fifty deaths and 4,500 injuries on construction sites every year across the U.S. And that is only one way to suffer a serious construction injury. These sites are some of the most dangerous places to work or visit when equipment breaks, chemicals leak, or human error causes a tragedy.
Common New York City construction site injuries
It will come as no surprise that New York City litigation often involves a construction injury. With buildings constantly being erected, torn down, or repaired, the chaotic city atmosphere makes it ripe for accidents of all kinds. The following are some of the most frequent types of harm suffered:
- Chemical and electrical burns
- Bone breakage
- Torn tendons, ligaments and muscles
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Causes of a construction injury in New York City are numerous. It could be that the equipment used was not properly made, maintained, or repaired. Employers and supervisors may not have taken adequate, state-mandated precautions with regards to workplace procedures and protocols. No matter how it happened, your New York City construction injury needs immediate attention, both medical and legal.
