However, if you’ve ever been hurt in a construction accident at work, you know that sometimes they fall short, and your suffering could extend beyond the first shock and discomfort of the injury.
We rely on construction workers to keep our structures, roadways, and public areas safe and functional. This personnel are essential in ensuring people can continue their regular lives without incident. Unfortunately, accidents at work regularly involve construction employees.
Being wounded at a building site can result in various losses and damages, including the inability to work. Consult a construction accident attorney in Brooklyn to learn if you are eligible for additional compensation beyond what workers’ compensation provides.

A construction mishap can happen to even the most cautious employee. Your Long Island construction accident attorney will be able to help you with the following examples of just a few workplace accidents:
Electrical Injuries – Power lines and electrical wires are frequently present around construction workers. A worker is seriously at risk of suffering significant injuries in an electrical mishap if these electrical systems are not maintained properly or are not laid out.
Falls – The most common reason for deadly construction accidents is falling. Falling objects caused about 39% of all fatal construction accident injuries in 2015.
Accidents involving ladders – One of the most frequent fall accidents that put construction workers in danger is falling off a ladder. Ladders are a factor in twenty per cent of fall injuries.
Falling Debris – Ground-level employees must continuously be alert for anything, such as loose nails and steel beams, that could potentially fall and injure them. A catastrophic injury from falling debris can quickly cause a severe brain injury, spinal damage, or even death.
Accidents involving cranes and forklifts – Heavy equipment that is not maintained correctly or malfunctions can pose a major risk to the operator and the nearby personnel.
Burns – Construction workers are frequently at risk of getting burned by something, whether it’s an electrical issue, an explosion, chemicals, or something else.
Hazardous Exposure – By law, employers and property owners are required to take precautions to ensure that construction workers are not exposed to toxic substances at unsafe concentrations, which can result in illness and internal damage. Lead, asbestos, benzene, and formaldehyde are hazardous compounds to which a construction worker may be exposed.
Many wounded workers wrongly think that all lawsuits are prohibited by New York’s workers’ compensation regulations. While it is true that you cannot sue your employer, the accident could have been caused by someone else.
If so, you might have a claim for compensation for your injuries against these negligent third parties. In other words, you could be able to get more money for your losses.
