Construction Accidents in NYC
Brian Magnosi | Construction Accidents | October 8, 2020
Each year, thousands of construction workers are killed or injured on the job. More than in any other industry.
In New York city, construction is one of the deadliest occupations. Just last year, one worker was crushed to death by a crane, and another killed by a fall from a scaffold. These are just two of the nearly 60 New York construction workers killed on the job last year. Thousands of others were injured, and many of those injuries are permanent. The construction industry is so dangerous, that New York state passed the Scaffold Law, which makes employers and property owners liable for injuries sustained from falls if proper safety standards are not met and/or proper safety equipment is not provided.
If you are a construction worker that has been injured on a work site you have the absolute right to bring a lawsuit for the injuries you have suffered.
