Serving New York (NYC), Queens, Astoria, Great Neck and Long Island
Construction sites pose certain dangers that are not typically present in many other jobs. Heavy machinery and power tools are often needed to complete construction jobs, and workers are regularly placed in dangerous places such as scaffolds which increase the risk of serious injury from falls. Due to the dangerous nature of this work, construction workers place their lives on the line on a daily basis.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, construction accidents are more likely to result in death than any other type of workplace accident. In fact, more than 20% of workplace deaths occur at construction sites. When fatal construction accidents are caused by negligence, you may be entitled to hold the negligent party accountable through a wrongful death lawsuit.
New York wrongful death lawyer Marc Albert has seen firsthand the devastation that fatal construction accidents can cause to the victim’s family. With more than 15 years of experience handling these complex cases, Mr. Albert has the skills to protect your rights and hold the negligent parties accountable for the death of your loved one.
A Lack of Concern for Construction Site Safety
Most construction workers are very aware of the dangers inherent in this line of work and take the proper precautions to reduce the likelihood of an accident. However, there are often factors beyond their control which lead to serious construction site injuries. Defective equipment can cause an accident at any time, as can the careless mistakes of others.
Sadly, there are also many fatal construction accidents caused by the failure of contractors, supervisors, and property owners to maintain a safe working environment. These preventable injuries leave children without fathers and wives without husbands, placing a serious financial and emotional burden on the rest of the family. This negligence is simply unacceptable, and those responsible must be held accountable for their actions.
