Companies often put profits over safety on construction sites. Proper safety equipment is not always provided or construction companies may cut corners to save money. Construction sites are dangerous places, and many workers are hurt on scaffolding, ladders, hoists, slings, and other devices. Often, there is a basis for a claim against a general contractor or owner under the New York State Labor Law, depending on the type of accident.
Below are some of the most common construction site accidents:
- Construction site falls
- Struck by falling equipment or debris
- Crane Accidents
- Forklift accidents
- Scaffold Accidents
- Ladder Accidents
- Saw and Cutting Blade Accidents
- Punch Press Malfunctions Accidents
