Brooklyn Job Site Hazards Lawyer
A common cause of injury on a construction site is tripping over debris and equipment. It is imperative to manage construction sites to reduce tripping hazards and ensure clear pathways for workers, whether they are on the ground or on the 30th floor. Workers who are injured on the job, or passersby who tripped on construction debris dropped on the sidewalk, may be able to recover damages and compensation. If this happened to you, contact an experienced construction accident injury lawyer to learn about your rights.
At the New York law firm of Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein, LLP, Attorneys at Law, our attorneys advocate zealously for clients who have suffered injury because of construction debris. We investigate thoroughly, determining which party or parties may be held responsible for the accident. We consult with a variety of experts who help us understand the sequence of events that led to the injury. These can include construction managers, safety experts, engineers, designers and any other specialist who can add to the strength of the case. We also work with medical providers who can help us understand the impact of the injuries on your life. The result of our work is a strong case that tells your story and is ready for trial.
Examples of Tripping Hazards at Construction Sites
Our lawyers have represented injured construction workers who tripped on debris and waste such as:
- Piles of dust
- Oils and other liquids
- Wire spools
- Tools left out
Injuries caused by tripping on objects such as these can include a back injury that does not resolve or a fatal fall from a great height. If the fall resulted in a fatality, our lawyers develop wrongful death claims. Clients rely on our legal team to pursue their personal injury claims under New York Labor Law 240(1) and 241(6). They appreciate our determination to obtain full compensation for their injuries whenever possible.
