Construction workers are well aware of the dangers they face each time they step on to a construction site. Our Queens accident lawyer with the Povman Law Firm, keeps our clients aware of not only the dangers they face, but also legal solutions that can help injured workers and their families arrange compensation for lost wages, medical bills and other damages after an unfortunate construction accident. Despite advances in equipment safety and increased guidelines, construction sites remain a dangerous working environment. Badly maintained equipment and unsafe work practices continue to cause an unacceptable number of construction related injuries, and even deaths, nationally.
Construction site accidents and injuries or deaths often involve equipment such as cranes, forklifts, boom lifts, dump trucks, ladders, backhoes, graders, saws, track-hoes, scaffolds, pump-jacks, aerial platforms, man lifts, scissor lifts, pumpers, compressors, air-nailers, and guns, electrical tools, staplers, hammers, extension cords, and drills. Construction accidents can also occur as the result of dangerous and unsafe floor openings, inadequate fall protection, eye protection, barricades, skylights, roofing, concrete, foundations, iron beams, pipes, stairs, railings, sidewalks, ditches, holes, trenches, walkways, highways, platforms and tunnels. Our Queens accident lawyer have worked on many cases where construction accidents involved numerous responsible parties including general contractors, subcontractors, architects, developers, excavators, framers, roofers, masons, painters, sheetrockers, plasterers, finish carpenters, plumbers, electricians, ironworkers and laborers. With the large number of parties involved in construction projects and the tendency for evidence to be changed, destroyed or misplaced, soon after a construction site injury happens, prompt and thorough investigation is crucial. Also crucial is hiring our Queens accident lawyer who has a thorough knowledge of the law relating to construction injuries as well as other safety regulations.
