Posted in Slip and Fall Accidents,Trip and Fall Accidents on July 31, 2012
New York City is one of the major business hubs of the world. This one of the reasons why many of the streets and buildings within the city are under construction – whether they are being built from the ground up like the WTC towers or being remodeled to be made into offices or chic apartments.
Despite the many new construction site safety measures and equipment in use, slip and fall accidents and trip and fall injuries on construction job sites are some of the leading types of accidents in New York. Construction sites are known for their tight spaces, precarious places, hazardous materials and convoluted layouts. Construction sites have large, dangerous equipment, supplies, and people all crammed together in one place, which is understandable why slip and fall accidents may occur – especially when safety equipment fails or mechanical equipment breaks down. Lots of injuries also occur when workers are distracted and fail to pay attention, or the workers aren’t properly trained for the job.
If you’ve been injured by a slip and fall accident while on the job at a construction site or a public location due to negligence, you have the right to file a lawsuit seeking damages for your losses and medical expenses. It is important that to gather and preserve evidence promptly and you must file a lawsuit before the deadline imposed by the statute of limitations in the state of New York.
