How HVAC Workers Can Get Hurt on the Job

Installing an HVAC system requires people to work together as a unit, as well as proper and safe ladders, scaffolds and other safety equipment.   One weak link in this chain can cause a coworker to get hurt. The same goes for demolition where the system is being taken down and a worker can be exposed to significant risk.  Here are a few examples of ways that HVAC installers and demolition workers can get hurt on the job:

  • Falls from Ladders & Scaffolds.  Installation or demolition of an HVAC system requires workers to work at elevated heights.  Improperly braced or maintained ladders and scaffolds can fail or fall over and cause injury to the worker.
  • Falls from Roofs & Buildings.  When exposed to fall hazards, such as roofs and sides of buildings, workers should be provided with safety harnesses, lanyards and lifelines to minimize the risk of injury.
  • Struck by falling equipment.  Heavy units may require a crane to raise and lower the HVAC system into place.  Failure of to properly secure the unit could result in it falling and striking the installer.
  • Struck by duct work:  Taking down duct work requires proper planning and safety equipment.  A piece of duct work that unexpectedly falls can strike a ladder or worker causing a fall and injury.
  • Electrocution. Since HVAC equipment connects to the electrical system of the building, installers can be electrocuted if proper wiring is not maintained.  The victim can end up with extensive burns or even worse, the loss of life.
  • Support Frame Collapse. HVAC units are heavy. If the support frame is insufficient for the weight, the material can collapse, sending the workers plummeting downward.

Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

Why do I need a car accident lawyer; can’t I just call the insurance company myself and try to get a settlement?
Insurance companies have skilled attorneys working to protect them as well as adjusters whose job it is to resolve claims for as little money as possible. Car accident victims representing themselves will usually be at a significant disadvantage. You should have skilled personal injury attorneys at your side, like those at Oresky & Associates, fighting for your rights, with a proven track record of obtaining over $300 Million Dollars in verdicts and settlements for New York accident victims. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation with an experienced New York car accident attorney.
What happens if I am partially at fault for my car accident?
As long as you are not 100 percent at fault for your car accident you can still recover money damages for your injuries from the other party who caused your accident. Most accidents involve some degree of comparative fault between the parties.
What is a spinal cord injury?
A spinal cord injury happens when the spinal cord is partially or completely severed, resulting in partial or complete paralysis.
How Much Does It Cost To Hire a Car Accident Lawyer?
When you are involved in a car accident, there is a free consultation. If you have a case, you pay no fees until we win your case. The cost calculates as a percentage of the amount you are awarded as compensation through settlement or jury trial, also known as a contingency fee basis.
I Have Insurance, and I Have the Other Driver’s Insurance Information. Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
Unfortunately, people are not always honest, and you need a knowledgeable lawyer to help you gather evidence that you cannot get on your own. Of course, you need the accident report, but you also may need witness statements, certified weather reports,  photos from the accident scene,  driver statements,  and other evidence to establish liability.
Who do I sue for my injuries in a car accident case?
Claims for car accidents are usually made against the insurance companies for the owners and operators of the vehicles involved in the car accident. Sometimes a driver’s employer, a business entity or other party may need to be added to the claim and future lawsuit. Make sure that all of the proper parties are made part of your case so that you receive the compensation that you are entitled to.
How does a medical malpractice lawsuit work?
Medical malpractice lawsuits usually begin with an insurance claim. Your attorney will attempt to prove your case and negotiate a settlement that covers your damages. If obtaining compensation outside of court is not an option, you can pursue a civil suit. Want to find out more? Read our full article here.
What is a deposition?
A deposition or EBT (examination before trial) is an opportunity for the defendants’ lawyers to ask you questions under oath about how your accident occurred. Depositions are normally conducted in an attorney’s office or the office of the court reporter who is transcribing your testimony. All parties are usually deposed.
