OUR LAWYERS HELP WORKERS INJURED IN CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS AND INJURIES CAUSED BY SITE DEBRIS IN NEW YORK CITY
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. This debris at the construction site needs to be cleaned up, walkways need to be clear. If left in place near workers, the same work materials become dangerous and can cause a serious injury to a worker. In certain situations, 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.
