Advocating For Recovery After Construction Accidents

There are constantly many construction projects going on in Brooklyn and all around New York City. Unfortunately, that means that there are likely to be accidents happening on job sites for many reasons.

At Shulman & Hill, we understand that a construction accident can sideline you from work, sometimes permanently, creating severe hardship. You have a right to pursue compensation for you and your family, and our experienced lawyers can help.

Lack of safety training, unsafe working conditions and any combination of malfunctioning equipment and the errors of others are just a few of the reasons accidents happen on a job site. Here are some common construction accidents where our clients sustained injuries.

Falls

Due to a variety of reasons, falls are a major source of accidents on construction sites. The failure of items such as safety equipment, scaffolding, machinery and building materials all contribute to tragic falls. In some cases, falls have occurred because there were no safety harnesses at the job site that would have prevented an accident. Our skilled workers’ compensation and personal injury attorneys dedicate themselves to seeking justice for injured workers and their families in these cases.

Blunt-Force Impacts

Injuries from hard blows can happen because of:

  • Falling debris
  • Malfunction of cranes or hoists
  • Dropped tools
  • Motor vehicle accidents

Often, these injuries are devastating, causing severe injury or death. Our lawyers zealously work for the best compensation outcomes for clients and their families to pay for medical costs and living expenses into the future.

Crushing And Lacerations

Trench collapse and falls into poorly protected trenches may occur if dangerous site conditions are allowed to exist. Construction work becomes more hazardous than usual when excavation equipment malfunctions, putting workers at risk.
