What to Do After a Construction Accident

Any piece of work equipment can become a hazard if not used or maintained correctly. Everything from machinery, tools, and even personal protective equipment (PPE) needs to be well -fit for the tasks at hand. When equipment is neglected, misused, or simply fails, it can lead to serious injury or even death on the construction site.

Different examples of unsafe construction work equipment include:

OSHA Requires Safe Construction Work Equipment

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires safe construction work equipment to protect the health and well-being of workers. Construction sites are inherently risky environments, and the use of safe, well-maintained equipment is critical in mitigating these risks.

The legal implications of noncompliance with these regulations are significant. If an employer fails to comply with OSHA’s safety standards, they may be held liable for any injuries or deaths caused by unsafe equipment. When we are working on an unsafe construction work equipment case, we can investigate the situation to look for proof that the employer did not maintain safe equipment and should be liable for any harm and losses such equipment caused.

Should You Report Unsafe Construction Work Equipment?

A construction worker should report unsafe construction work equipment for their own safety, the safety of their colleagues, and the overall well-being of their workplace. While your workplace may have specific reporting procedures in place, remember that the US Department of Labor is always available to be contacted in serious or dangerous cases. Moreover, if an injury does occur, your report could serve as a vital piece of evidence in any subsequent claims process. By documenting the issue formally, you help create a safer work environment and protect your rights and those of your fellow workers.

Injuries Caused by Unsafe Construction Work Equipment

Our unsafe construction work equipment attorney in New York can collaborate with medical experts to fully comprehend the extent and impact of your injuries that were caused by unsafe construction work equipment. This understanding is crucial in determining the amount of compensation you should receive for your losses and suffering. We do what we do to ensure each client has a fair chance to get the care they need to recover from their injuries as much as possible.

Compensation That Might Be Available to You

To make pursuing justice easier for you, we use a no-win, no-fee policy, which means you don’t need to worry about attorney fees unless we end the case in your favor.

In New York, unsafe construction work equipment claimants can typically seek two types of damages:

  1. Economic damages: These aim to compensate you for financial losses associated with the injury. Medical expenses (both current and future), lost wages, and loss of earning capacity are the most common forms of economic damage.
  2. Non-economic damages: These are meant to compensate for non-tangible losses. They include pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and shortened life expectancy. These are subjective and can vary greatly from case to case.
