On-the-job Construction Accidents

What are the dangers at your worksite?

While any workspace — even offices and retail stores — can present dangers, some places are inherently more dangerous than others. Construction sites, factories, and warehouses offer the greatest opportunity for accidents and severe injuries. Power tools, scaffolding, conveyor belts, working from heights, heavy machinery, cranes, electrical wires, forklifts, and trucks can be accidents waiting to happen.

At the Brooklyn worker’s compensation and personal injury law firm of Bisogno & Meyerson, LLP, we are committed to protecting the rights of injured workers — never more than when helping those who manufacture the goods and build the structures that have made New York one of the most famous places in the world.

The most common worksite injuries can also be the most catastrophic “Every day in America, 13 people go to work and never come home. Every year in America, nearly 4 million people suffer a workplace injury from which some may never recover. These are preventable tragedies that disable our workers, devastate our families, and damage our economy. American workers are not looking for a handout or a free lunch. They are looking for a good day’s pay for a hard day’s work. They just want to go to work, provide for their families, and get home in one piece.”

– Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, Memorial Day, 2012

As dedicated workers compensation attorneys, we are here to help those who sustained serious injuries in what are some of the most dangerous jobs in the United States. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the most common violations of regulations that can lead to serious injuries include:

  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Construction-site falls from ladders and aerial work platforms
  • Improper hazard communications
  • Lockout/Tagout errors
  • Failure of employers to provide proper or adequate safety equipment
  • Improper or lacking machine guards

This is just a partial list of accidents that can lead to traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, electrocution, loss of limbs and blindness. As trucking accident lawyers, we also know how many workers are injured by big rigs that are constantly maneuvering through construction sites and factory loading bays.

Whatever the reason for your accident and wherever you are in New York, the skilled New York work-site and Brooklyn factory accident lawyers at Bisogno & Meyerson, LLP can help you get the benefits and compensation you deserve through workers compensation or a personal injury claim.
