Manhattan Construction Accident Worker Lawyers

The United States Occupational Health and Safety Administration reported that 1 out of 5 deaths that occur in the workplace every year involve a construction worker. In the United States, there are an estimated 1,000 construction workers who die every year as a cause of injuries in the workplace. In New York City, there were 75 deaths that were work related in the construction industry in 2012. Construction accidents are common, so it is important to understand your rights if you are a construction worker who has been injured on the job.

In New York, there are special circumstances that are in place to protect construction workers who face dangerous conditions while working. Construction workers are commonly subjected to dangerous circumstances and conditions that could lead to serious injury or death. If a construction worker is injured on the job, he or she is protected by workers compensation. However, in most instances workers compensation is not enough to provide for those who have suffered from serious injures.

There are many times when construction sites have several employers, which include contractors and subcontractors. There are times when of these employers will be responsible for the injury to a construction worker who is employed by another employer on the construction site. If a construction worker has been injured by a third-party contractor or subcontractor, then negligence law states an injured employee may file a lawsuit. However, in order to file a lawsuit the worker must prove that third-party was responsible for putting a construction worker in dangerous conditions that resulted in the worker’s injury and the third-party was in control and understood the area was dangerous.

In New York, undocumented construction workers are also able to file construction accident lawsuits. Even if an individual is not working in the country legally, he or she should still contact an attorney. If you file a civil lawsuit, then it will not have an impact on your ability to stay in the United States.

Examples of Common Construction Workplace Accidents
In Manhattan, there is a constant need for construction. With all the construction that takes place, there is an increased risk for accidents. Here are some common examples of construction workplace accidents in Manhattan:

Scaffolding Issues
It is important that scaffolding is inspected, maintained, and kept secure for the protection of construction workers and pedestrians. When scaffolding has problems or is faulty, it can result to serious injury and even death. Minor scaffolding accidents can even result in a worker being permanently disabled and not able to earn a decent wage.

Falls
There are many construction sites that have equipment on scaffolds and roofs. When the equipment is not safely secured, the equipment can fall on workers, which can cause serious injures such as a traumatic brain injury. Furthermore, when objects fall from roofs and scaffolds, there is a risk for a wide range of other injuries.

Worksites That are not Safe
To prevent accidents and injuries from occurring on construction sites, there should be constant maintenance. When proper maintenance is not practiced at construction sites, it can be a potential hazard for the safety of construction worker. For example, equipment and debris can be a cause of slip and fall accidents, which can result in serious injuries such as spine and neck injuries, broken bones, and more.

Equipment Accidents
Construction vehicles, such as forklifts and cranes, should always be properly maintained. When construction vehicles are not properly taken care of, it can lead to a wide range of injuries.

What it do if You are Injured in Construction Accident
If you are a construction worker who has been injured on the job in Manhattan, it is vital to contact a construction accident lawyer who has the experience to help you move forward. Construction workers are in a dangerous working environment. Construction accidents can happen quickly without any warning. Sadly, these accidents can cause individuals to be permanently or seriously injured. Construction workers who have been injured are entitled to receive compensation for their injuries.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
