Many construction accidents are caused by negligent contractors, subcontractors or property owners. At times, there are so many parties working on a construction site that it is hard to pinpoint an at-fault party. Our skilled lawyers can investigate your accident and help you whether or not to pursue a claim.

Work-Related Construction Accidents

Though most injuries that occur in the workplace are covered by workers' compensation, injured individuals can also bring a claim against a third party if negligence was involved. In New York, this type of claim falls under Labor Law 241, which requires a construction site to be adequately safe for employees and others who frequent the site.

Construction, excavation and demolition work can be dangerous. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 30 work-related construction fatalities were reported in the state of New York in 2008. At Westermann Sheehy Keenan Samaan & Aydelott, LLP, we can represent employees in any construction accident. Many injuries and deaths are caused by:

  • Scaffolding accidents (Labor Law 240 claims)
  • Uncovered holes
  • Falls from heights
  • Injuries from falling objects
  • Nail gun injuries
  • Forklift accidents
  • Crane accidents
  • Welding injuries
  • OSHA violations
