Construction Accidents and Why They Happen

Construction Accidents

Construction accidents can happen for a number of different reasons. The unfortunate thing is that these injuries can sometimes be severe due to the heavy machinery that construction workers use on a daily basis. Get yourself checked out by a doctor as soon as possible following an accident at the construction site. It is important to know what injuries you may have and to set up the corresponding treatments or therapy to fix these injuries. Your potential construction accident case may pay you for pain and suffering, therapy sessions, doctor’s visits, missed days from work, and more. Don’t hesitate to get checked out by a doctor after your accident. Even if the pain doesn’t appear to be severe or obvious, it still could be that you incurred an injury needing care. 

Was this a Workplace Injury?

If the accident that has left you with pain and possible broken bones happened at a construction site where you work, then knowing how to proceed is important. An experienced construction accident lawyer New York trusts, such as Polsky, Shouldice & Rosen P.C, can answer any questions you may have about your injury and how it occurred. These types of lawyers generally have years of experience in the field of construction accidents. They also understand the different details and nuances that go on within these cases. If you are feeling a bit unsure about how to proceed with your case, or are thinking about starting a lawsuit, consider contacting a lawyer to help you out. Many people turn to lawyers when their possible case has some grey areas or details involved that leave them with unanswered questions.

Construction Site Negligence

A proper safety culture and structure is something that is essential to keeping construction site workers and all workers safe. If your company or the company you are a contractor for are failing in properly setting up a safety structure to keep you and your fellow co-workers safe, then this is an issue. In some accidents, it has been seen that workers were improperly trained on how to operate certain pieces of equipment. In other cases, it was seen that some companies cut corners and failed to follow their own safety guidelines which leads to an unsafe workplace. If these things are happening at your workplace and have contributed to your injury, then you may have a strong basis for legal action against the company for your injury.
