Common Construction Accidents
Working in the construction trade can be dangerous. According to OSHA, one in five worker deaths in the nation in 2013 were in construction, and because of negligence, unsafe or dangerous conditions, equipment failure or workplace violations. Common construction accidents include:
- slips and falls
- scaffolding accidents
- excavation or trench hazards
- repetitive motion activity
- electrocution or explosions
- equipment failure
New York has strict laws to ensure that employers provide a safe workplace for construction site laborers, foremen, contractors, apprentices, journeymen and others. However, the laws can be complicated, and claims can be subject to strict deadlines after an accident happens. It is important to secure legal assistance as soon as possible to ensure the best result in pursuing a claim.
