Friedman, Hirschen & Miller, LLP

Brain Attorneys For Victims Of Construction Accidents In New York

Construction Site Accidents Often Involve Falls or Falling Objects

It is surprising to many people how many head injuries occur from falls of 5 feet or less. Young children and those over 70 years of age are at an increased risk of death from these short-distance falls. We think of falling from a skyscraper as being dangerous, even though a fall from a 6-foot stepladder can result in serious brain injury.

New York labor laws have special protections and statutes to protect workers who work at heights on buildings, scaffolding or ladders. New York law also requires property owners, general contractors and subcontractors to provide safe workplaces for construction site workers and others. When they fail to fulfill this responsibility, they can be held liable for those injuries. Victims may pursue compensation for damages in addition to medical expenses.

In 2010, there were more workplace fatalities from falls and falling objects than there were from motor vehicle accidents.
