New York City Construction Site Fall Lawyer

Construction Fall Injury Lawyer

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) states that fall-related accidents are the leading cause of fatalities in the New York City construction industry. Contrary to popular belief, fall-related accidents do not necessarily involve a worker falling. Rather, fall-related accidents refer to all mishaps which involve gravity as a damaging force in the event. While this can include actual falls by workers, injury can also result from tools, equipment, or structures falling as well. With the help of a New York City personal injury attorney from The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny, you can seek compensation for your pain and suffering after a fall-related accident on a New York construction site.

Falling Objects On Construction Sites

Another large contributor to the danger of fall-related accidents on construction sites is the risk of being struck by a falling object. Again, gravity plays a large role in intensifying velocity and impact force, ultimately increasing the damage potential of the falling objects. Workers can be struck by any object, small or large, and can sustain serious injuries if the fall is from high up. Being struck by a falling object, especially heavy objects like the equipment found on a construction site, can result in traumatic brain injury and even death.

Objects left behind by negligent co-workers are often found as the cause of injury to another employee. Tools, materials, and flying debris can easily cause injury on a construction site. Furthermore, the lack of proper training can lead one worker to stack or store material in an unsafe manner, causing it to later fall on a fellow worker. Workers have a responsibility to ensure their safety and the safety of others to a reasonable standard. Injuries from falling objects can be avoided by the use of safety equipment such as hardhats, protective goggles, face shields, and protective guards on tools and equipment.

To protect against these types of accidents, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has implemented several precautionary practices that all construction workers, supervisors, and managers are expected to follow to prevent falls from happening. You can read about these safety regulations here.
