New York City Construction Accident Lawyers

New York City is comprised of the five boroughs of Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Staten Island. NYC is growing rapidly with construction and development occurring at a hurried pace both in Manhattan known as New York County as well as Brooklyn, the Bronx, and other locales. With a rise in construction come the dangers to construction site laborers. Many of these dangers tend to be elevation or gravity related. Falls from a height are common injuries on construction sites. Examples include falls from ladders or scaffolds. Another common construction injury is an object which is being hoisted or secured as part of the work breaking off and falling striking a worker. There are many other types of construction accidents.

Types of Construction Site Accidents

  • Ladder accidents; ladders that are old, not secured, unstable; ladders that slip or slide because of dangerous conditions on the work surface upon which they are placed; ladders which have no non-skid footing; ladders that do not lock in the A frame position due to a broken or defective locking mechanism
  • Scaffold accidents: scaffold collapses,

Common Construction Site Injuries

  • -spinal cord injuries
  • -herniated discs requiring spinal fusion surgery
  • -paraplegia, quadriplegia or other forms of paralysis
  • -fractured bones
  • -torn ligaments requiring surgery often to the knee or shoulder
  • -traumatic brain injuries including mild traumatic brain injury (MBTI) and closed head injury

The New York Labor Law protects construction site workers and laborers by placing the legal burden on the construction site owners and general contractors who must provide equipment including ladders and scaffolds that are safe and properly placed so that the workers can perform their job functions safely. Labor Law 240 and 241(6) as well as Industrial Codes found in Title 23 protect construction workers.
