What Are the Most Common Construction Injuries in NYC?

Because contractors, subcontractors, electricians, and others in the construction industry are required to work on hazardous jobsites and use heavy machinery and tools, they are at a fairly high risk of being injured on the job. Even when these injuries are not fatal, workers are likely to sustain catastrophic injuries, affecting nearly every aspect of their lives.

Common construction injuries include:

  • Being hit by falling objects
  • Lifting and back injuries
  • Hand and power tool injuries
  • Falls from heights
  • Severe burns
  • Electrocutions
  • Explosions
  • Crush injuries and amputation

What Compensation Is Available for Construction Accident Injuries?

Construction accident claims are often very complex due to the many complicating factors involved. Because these incidents occur at work, injured workers may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. However, if third-party negligence contributed to the accident, the victim may also be eligible to file a personal injury claim or lawsuit against the negligent party.

At The Paris Law Group, PC, we are capable of navigating the legal process on your behalf and can assist you with a variety of construction accident-related needs, including but not limited to:

  • Filing a workers’ compensation claim
  • Appealing a denied workers’ compensation claim
  • Filing a third-party personal injury claim or lawsuit

Can I Sue a Third-Party for a Construction Accident?

Construction sites are complex places with many different elements working together all at once. There are workers, machines, tools, materials, and more spread out over a large area - sometimes spanning several city blocks. With so much going on, it's no wonder that accidents happen. But when they do, who is responsible?

There may in fact be multiple liable parties in your case.

Property Owner Negligence

Construction sites are dangerous places. There are many potential hazards, which is why most states have laws that require landowners to take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of workers. When a landowner fails in this duty and someone is injured as a result, the injured party may be able to file a premises liability claim against the landowner.

To win such a claim, the injured party would need to show that:

  • The landowner owed them a duty of care,
  • The landowner breached that duty; and
  • The breach of duty led to their injuries.

Proving these elements can be difficult, especially on construction sites where there are many different contractors and subcontractors involved.

Worksite Manager Negligence

In some cases, the worksite manager may be responsible for premises liability. This is because the worksite manager is typically responsible for overseeing all aspects of the construction project. However, proving that the worksite manager is liable can be difficult. The injured party would need to show that the manager knew or should have known about the hazard and did not take the necessary steps to fix it. Additionally, other workers may be found liable if improper use and storage of tools and other equipment made the worksite unsafe.

OSHA Violations

The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) sets forth numerous regulations and safety guidelines for the construction industry sector. Unfortunately, OSHA violations are a leading cause of construction accidents. If you believe your injuries or the death of your loved one was due to unsafe work practices, negligent supervision or hiring, or any other negligent or wrongful factor, reach out to The Paris Law Group, PC to learn how we can help.

We Can Reach Beyond Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation provides benefits for employees who are injured on the job, regardless of who was at fault. However, workers’ compensation benefits are limited. If the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may have the right to seek additional compensation.

Employers, property owners, contractors, subcontractors, architects, equipment operators, and manufacturers all share responsibility for keeping jobsites safe. If another party was negligent and caused you to be injured, they may be held liable for damages.

Unlike workers’ compensation, which is limited, the civil justice system allows you to pursue unlimited damages, including money for loss of earnings potential and pain and suffering.
