An injury on the job or at a worksite caused by someone else’s negligence can be overwhelming and stressful. While we expect that the places we work are safe, that’s not always the case. Construction sites, in particular, are inherently hazardous work environments. In New York City, these sites are seemingly everywhere and they can create very dangerous conditions for both workers and pedestrians alike. At Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP, the Case Handler team understands how serious these types of injuries can be, and we represent both workers and passersby in injury claims, seeking the damages you deserve.
The increase in construction zones in the city has led to record numbers of construction injuries and accidents over the past few years. There are various incidents that can injure workers on construction sites, including:
If you or someone you love has been injured while working on a construction site, you are entitled to workers’ comp benefits for an injury suffered in the course of your employment. A personal injury attorney can help you seek payments that fully account for the harm you’ve suffered.
While construction workers face serious risks doing the jobs they’ve chosen to do, city residents often face similar risks just by simply walking down the street. Pedestrians face the possibility of being injured by falling tools, glass, or debris as well as collapsing scaffolds, walls, or floors. There is also a risk for pedestrians to suffer slip and fall injuries near construction sites that were improperly maintained. Pedestrians injured at construction sites may suffer a range of injuries, including TBIs, broken bones, nerve damage, or even death. If you or a loved one has been harmed while walking through a construction zone due to the negligence of a worker, contractor, or employer, you could be entitled to substantial damages for your injuries.
Whether you are a worker or a pedestrian, if you have been injured at a construction site or in a zone where construction work is taking place, you need skilled personal injury representation. The Case Handler team at Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP in New York can help with your claim.
