We prepare every case for trial right from the start. Only when the other attorneys know that we are willing and prepared to take the case to court will they offer the maximum money award.
Gravity-related injuries are extremely common in the construction business. Injuries from roof falls, scaffold falls, and dangerous falling objects and debris are among the most common — and the most devastating — construction injuries. In many instances, under New York law, a construction worker injured in a gravity-related injury cannot be held partially responsible. The insurance company is prevented from claiming you are partially responsible for your injuries such as:
- Construction site falls
- Scaffold injuries
- Roof fall injuries
- Ladder injuries
- Crane accidents and falling equipment
- Open elevator shaft injuries
- Unguarded openings
- Falling objects and debris
- Trench collapse injuries
- Excavation injuries
- Holes in construction floors
In far too many cases, poor manufacturing or maintenance of construction equipment causes serious injuries.
- Industrial injuries
- Unsafe equipment
- Machinery injuries
- Construction site supervisor negligence
- Forklift injuries
- Welding and ironwork
Major construction sites should have site safety managers to oversee the safety components of the work environment and protecting the workers from unsafe conditions such as:
- Improper signaling
- Construction workers hit by highway drivers
- Run over by construction vehicles
- Inadequate construction safety gear
- Improper cleanup and maintenance
- Electrocution and explosion
- Construction site burn injuries
- Flame retardant clothing failure burns
- Cutting injuries
