New York City Construction Site Accidents Lawyers
Building demolition, construction & renovation is big business and a strong part of the economy in the Greater New York Metropolitan Area. In addition to new commercial and residential construction, our schools, hospitals and other public buildings, mass transit, roadways, highways, utilities and other infrastructure are always in need of repairs, renovations, upgrades and replacements. Toward that end, countless builders, contractors, construction workers and tradespeople often work in dangerous environments where accidents are commonplace, causing injuries, health issues, disabilities, livelihoods and, sometimes, even lives.
In addition to federal law and guidelines, New York and other states have their own laws, rules and regulations designed to further protect workers and ensure a safe work environment. Unfortunately, those laws and regulations sometimes aren’t followed and avoidable accidents, unfortunately, are commonplace. Such common accidents include those involving:
- scaffolds & walkways
- safety harnesses and equipment
- helmets, goggles, gloves and other personal protective equipment
- structural & equipment collapses
- construction vehicles & equipment
- compressed air/gas, pressurized water & hydraulics failures
- power tools, torches and equipment failures
Our firm’s lawyers not only know the law – but also know their way around a construction site. They’ve been there, done that. They are familiar with the work, the terminology, the customs & practices, the science and how and why things go wrong. Contact The Mandel Law Firm for a consultation at (646) 779-1441.
