Everyday hardworking men and women head off to their job sites, willing to get their hands dirty. They are responsible for building our homes, office buildings, and our highways. Unfortunately, even with safety measures regulated by New York State and Federal law, construction accidents still happen. A construction worker being killed or seriously injured on the job is an all too common occurrence.
The most serious injuries to workers are the result of a fall from height. Perhaps it was the lack of a safety device, like a belt or a harness, that allowed the injury to happen. Or perhaps it was a device failure such as a ladder, hoist, lift, scaffold or safety railing collapse that resulted in truly catastrophic injuries and even death to the worker. Contractors and corporations have an obligation to follow well known and proven safety protocols and standards. When they fail to do so, it is the worker and his or her family that suffers. These very serious injuries can prevent a hardworking and skillful employee from ever returning to their job, and sometimes they cannot even perform their own daily tasks like dressing, cooking or driving. Not only does the worker suffer, but so does their family.
