Falling Objects at Construction Sites Can be Deadly

Construction-SitesSeemingly everyday mishaps can turn deadly at a construction site. In November 2014, a worker was killed when he was struck by a tape measure that had been dropped 500 feet above him. If you ever wondered whether all that safety gear and worksite safety regulations made a difference, now you know.

In New York, the provisions of the Scaffold Law are designed to protect construction workers and passersby from the danger of falling tools, debris and other objects. However, builders and contractors, in a hurry to get the job done quickly and cheaply, sometimes skimp on safety by:

  • neglecting to maintain equipment in safe condition,
  • failing to issue legally required safety gear or
  • not taking the time to make sure that workers understand safety instructions.

Construction workers who are hurt may face the dual challenge of paying for bills at a time when there is no paycheck coming in, while trying to recover. The bills add up quickly. Injured workers and their families need quick, efficient compensation to cover all their expenses, including medical bills, lost wages, and disability. Without legal representation, you may not be able to provide adequately for yourself and your family. Workers injured at construction sites are entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits, and in many cases entitled to commence law suits to recover money damages for personal injuries. This is in addition to Workers’ Compensation benefits.
