Construction Site Crush Injury Lawyer NYC

Construction workers can suffer devastating injuries when a body part is caught in or between two pieces of equipment or two heavy objects. In many cases, the injuries did not happen by accident. They happened because of an unsafe work environment.

At The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny in Manhattan, our attorneys represent injured workers, including undocumented workers, who are injured on construction sites in the New York City area. Call (212) 421-0300 for a free initial consultation.

The Long-Term Effects Of A Crush Injury

Crush injuries happen at construction sites when heavy objects fall. They can also occur when people work in close proximity to heavy machinery. When a body part is caught between two heavy objects, or between heavy pieces of equipment, the affected area can suffer permanent damage. The worker may suffer:

  • Compound fractures
  • Nerve and tissue damage
  • Amputation
  • Death

Holding Negligent Parties Accountable

While injured workers can obtain benefits from workers’ compensation, those benefits are limited. For example, workers’ compensation does not offer compensation for damages such as pain and suffering. In many cases, our lawyers can help you obtain full compensation for everything you have lost by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party, whether that is your employer, the property owner, or another contractor working on the site.

Examples of negligence in crush-type accidents include:

  • Removal of guards from equipment
  • Working on equipment while it is running
  • Having workers in areas where they are at risk of being struck by falling objects
  • Unsafe equipment operation
  • Failure to create measures to workers from being crushed by heavy equipment or pinned between the equipment and a solid object
  • Failure to provide cave-in protection to workers in trenches or excavations

When an employer puts construction speed ahead of worker safety, our lawyers will do everything we can to hold the employer accountable. We have recovered more than $100 million in compensation on behalf of our clients.
