CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS | New York Personal Injury Attorney - Trial Lawyer Steve Williamson


Construction accidents can cause physical, financial and psychological pain for victims and their families. Extensive medical bills, dealing with the trauma of a serious injury have a significant impact on a person’s life. Steve Williamson handles cases involving workplace injuries, including those sustained on construction sites.

There are a number of complex liability issues related to construction accident lawsuits, so it’s important to contact an attorney who has experience handling such claims. We have handled workplace accidents and personal injury lawsuits for more than two decades and have the resources needed to go up against any insurance company, large corporation or municipal entity.

There are a number of parties who may be liable for a construction related injury, including construction site owners, general contractors, sub-contractors, manufacturers of faulty equipment or another third party. Only a thorough investigation of medical records, the construction site, witness statements and parties related to the incident can determine liability.

Construction accidents can occur for a number of reasons. Regulations require employers and contractors to obtain certain permits, conduct regular inspections and implement job safety
programs to limit workplace accidents. Some of the leading causes of construction accidents include:

  • Insufficient training
  • Poor safety precautions and oversight
  • Crane accidents
  • Hoist accidents
  • Harness accidents
  • Collapsed structures
  • Improper use or maintenance of equipment
  • Compressed gases
  • Mechanical hazards
  • Exposure to toxic substances
  • Falls from elevations
  • Slips and falls
  • Defective equipment
  • Fires and explosions
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Electrical accidents
  • Falling objects

Cell tower accidents are becoming a growing concern. In recent years, cell tower related injuries and fatalities have increased. As the “need for speed” increases, the demand has led to lax adherence to safety and industry training standards and created dangerous conditions for these workers.

It is important to bring justice to workers who were injured or killed in workplace accidents. In some situations, passers-by are entitled to compensation when they are injured near or at a construction site.

After a workplace accident, accountability is essential. While you focus on the healing process, we will conduct a thorough investigation, determine the at-fault parties and pursue the financial compensation that you deserve. Contact us today for a consultation.
