Construction Accidents

Construction accidents are unfortunately all too common in New York City. Despite safety regulations and protocols put in place to protect workers, accidents still occur due to negligence, carelessness, and, sometimes, just plain accidents as a result of the inherently dangerous nature of the work. These accidents can lead to serious injuries and even fatalities.

At Georgaklis & Mallas, we have seen firsthand the devastating impact that construction accidents can have on workers and their families. Workers injured in construction accidents may be unable to work and provide for their families, face expensive medical bills and ongoing treatment, and suffer from physical and emotional pain and trauma.

Common types of construction accidents in New York City include falls from scaffolds, ladders or roofs, being struck by falling objects, getting caught in machinery or equipment, electrical shocks, explosions, slip-and-fall, and trip-and-fall,. These accidents can be caused by a variety of factors including inadequate safety training, faulty equipment, unsafe work conditions, and employer negligence.

New York Labor Law places absolute liability on owners and general contractors of construction sites when they fail to provide a safe place to work and fail to provide the necessary tools and safety equipment to perform work in a safe manner.
