Construction Accident Lawyer - When You Need One

by James J Corbett New York Civil Litigation Lawyer

If there is any job that conceals a minefield of danger and risk, it is construction work. Thousands of people are severely injured or killed every year in construction accidents. And although many regulations are in place to protect workers, construction accidents remain the #1 cause of job-related deaths in The US.

In New York City, as in other major metropolitan areas, economic pressure to get buildings up faster and faster only makes things worse. Construction accident lawyers in New York see more and more devastating cases emerge from on-site accidents.

Burns, electrocution, eye injury (including impaired vision or blindness), broken bones, knee and ankle injury, neck injury, shoulder or back injury, spinal cord injury (including damage that can cause paraplegia or quadriplegia), injury caused by toxic chemical exposure and head injury and/or brain injury are only a few of the catastrophic construction injuries that can put victims out of work—sometimes even permanently. Others face a life-long regimen of medication and weeks or months of rehabilitation. During that time, their families often have no financial support.

It is the contracting company's responsibility to maintain a safe working environment and ensure its workers' safety. That isn't always the case. Negligent contractors or subcontractors often cause construction accidents. Risk factors—trench collapse, damaged scaffolding, faulty power tools, and electrical wiring, poorly maintained heavy machinery, and a lack of adequate protective gear—can easily trigger an unforeseen accident at the construction site.

If you have been injured on a construction site, you have got plenty on your plate to worry about right now without figuring out how to maneuver the judicial system. You should contact an experienced construction litigation lawyer in NYC. These lawyers are familiar with the New York Workers Compensation Act and can help you navigate this complex arena.
