CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT LAWYER SERVING QUEENS, NY
LAWYERS HELPING WORKERS INJURED IN CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS CAUSED BY SITE DEBRIS IN NEW YORK
Construction sites are often scattered with machinery, tools, and construction materials everywhere. Accidents happen as a result of debris left where it should not have been. For construction workers, this debris can pose a danger and can cause serious injuries. Debris such as metal and wood fragments, sharp glass and other dangerous materials may cause workers to trip, fall and injure themselves as a result. Due to the unsanitary nature of these materials, a victim can also be susceptible to infection and disease. Dangerous debris can cause serious hazards not just to construction workers, but also to the public.
Injuries from construction site debris are preventable. Property owners, general contractors or supervisors are required by law to maintain a safe workplace that is as hazard-free as possible. When employers fail to take the steps necessary to protect workers, such as removing unnecessary debris, they should be held accountable for the injuries suffered by their workers. Negligence does not need to be proven for worker’s compensation claims, however, negligence does need to be demonstrated when pursuing a third-party claim.
If you or a family member has been injured due to construction site debris, you need to seek legal council from a qualified lawyer in New York. We represent those injured in construction accidents involving any type of serious injuries, such as broken bones, spinal cord trauma, paralysis or loss of limbs.
