Common New York Trench Excavation Collapse Causes and Injuries
Excavations require proper shoring to make certain that the opening does not collapse. If heavy equipment is used around the excavation proper shoring must be used to handle the heavier loads.
Oresky & Associates, pllc. fights for the rights of construction workers by making claims and law suits seeking money damages for those injured in construction accidents involving:
- Trench Collapses
- Excavation Cave-ins
- Workers struck by pipes, steel plates, materials lowered into the excavation
- Improperly secured pipes or equipment falling into the trench or excavation
- Laborers falling into unguarded excavations or openings
- Construction workers struck by cranes, and equipment used at the job site
New York Law provides strong protections for construction workers. There are very specific laws, rules and regulations which protect those engaged in building and construction. If you were injured in a construction accident involving a trench or an excavation, you may have the right to make a claim or bring a law suit for money damages for personal injuries. This would be in addition to any Workers’ Compensation benefits that you receive. Your legal status is not important.
