Demolition and Excavation Accidents
NYC Demolition and Excavation Accidents
There are many hazards associated with demolition and excavation work. When something is demolished, even in a controlled situation, NY construction workers and others can be at risk for injuries, such as debris or falling objects.
Help For Victims Of Demolition, Tunnel And Excavation Accidents
Demolition, tunnel, and excavation are among the most dangerous types of construction projects. Unfortunately, worker safety often takes a back seat to schedules and budgets. This leads to unsafe conditions that put workers at risk. At O’Dwyer & Bernstien, LLP, in Manhattan, we know that a work injury can turn your life upside down. We also know that workers’ compensation is not enough to protect your family from financial hardship, especially if you suffer a permanent disability. Our lawyers are here to help you recover the maximum compensation you are due. You may be entitled to more than workers’ compensation. Our lawyers have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for injured workers in the New York City area. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your accident and explain your options.
Holding Negligent Parties Accountable For Unsafe Conditions
Safety equipment and precautions are not optional. They are required by law. In demolition, tunnel and excavation sites, it is crucial to provide proper bracing to prevent cave-ins. Workers need proper equipment such as goggles, harnesses, supports, lanyards, lifelines, railings, nets, cages, fences and covered walkways.
The following are accidents that can occur at demolition, tunnel and excavation sites when employers fail to make worker safety a priority:
- Trench collapses
- Injuries from falling objects
- Trip-and-fall accidents
