Construction Accident Attorney New York, NY

In the New York metropolitan area, construction, renovation, and demolition of apartment buildings, office buildings, retail establishments, homes, and other buildings go on every day. There are many hazards on a job site and injuries sustained on a construction site can be devastating.

Construction Accident Attorney New York, NY with construction workers holding hard hats and building plansEvery year thousands of workers are injured or killed on the job. Workers and tradesmen who are the backbone of this country are routinely placed in harm’s way due to unsafe or hazardous work site conditions. Hardworking men and women are needlessly exposed to hazardous conditions that result in injury and sometimes death. Often, owners and contractors prioritize economic considerations and project deadlines over maintaining a safe job site.

When this happens, good people get hurt through no fault of their own. The law permits workers to recover monetary damages for on-the-job injuries when owners, contractors, and subcontractors don’t meet their obligations or follow safety rules. For example, the law demands that construction sites are maintained according to specific safety standards, regular inspections are conducted, safety gear and devices are provided and equipment is kept in good working order. These types of safety violations can result in catastrophic injuries.

Blitz Law Group has successfully represented clients injured in a wide range of serious construction accidents including:

  • Ladder and scaffolding accidents
  • Falling objects
  • Accidents caused by construction debris and defects
  • Crane accidents, forklift accidents, and motor vehicle accidents
  • Trench collapses
  • Worksite accidents

If you have been injured at a construction site you may be entitled to significant compensation in excess of any worker’s compensation benefits. BLG has shown its leadership in the litigation and trial of these cases through its successful track record in obtaining large monetary awards for workers who have been injured at work sites.

Worksite Accidents That Require An Attorney

If you or someone you know has been injured in a worksite accident, it is important to understand your rights and the legal remedies from a New York, NY construction accident attorney that may be available to you. In these situations, it is best to have an experienced  attorney to help guide you through the process and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve. Learn more about the various types of worksite accidents that require an attorney, and then contact Blitz Law Group, LLP for help.


Electrical shocks can cause victims to suffer from shock, burns, cardiac arrest, and even death in the most extreme cases. The damages caused by electrocution are usually permanent and can have an extremely negative impact on the victim’s quality of life. If you or a loved one has been the victim of electrocution at work, it is important to seek legal representation right away in order to get the compensation you deserve.

Ladder/Scaffolding Falls

Every year in the United States, thousands of workers suffer from injuries due to falling from ladders and scaffolds. Falls from ladders and scaffolds can result in broken bones, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and even death. It is essential that construction workers use proper safety precautions when using ladders and scaffolding, such as wearing safety harnesses, using tie-offs, and having someone else present to spot the worker. Even with these safety measures, accidents still happen.

Heavy Equipment Collisions

Heavy equipment is responsible for many serious worksite accidents each year. Whether it’s an excavator, bulldozer, crane or other piece of heavy machinery, these vehicles can cause serious harm to a worker if an accident occurs. Some of the injuries that can result from a heavy equipment collision include broken bones, lacerations, head trauma, spinal cord damage and even death. Employers are expected to maintain their heavy equipment and ensure all safety protocols are being followed by workers. If a heavy equipment collision occurs due to negligence or failure to adhere to safety standards, the victim may be entitled to legal recourse. An experienced New York construction accident attorney can help a victim evaluate their case and ensure they are adequately compensated for their injuries.

Welding/Burn Injuries

Welding is a common activity at worksites and can be dangerous if the proper safety measures are not taken. Welders face the risk of being burned or electrocuted, as well as inhaling toxic fumes. Even when protective gear is worn, welders can still suffer serious burns due to stray sparks and splashes of molten metal. In extreme cases, these injuries may even result in death.

Chemical Exposure

When working in a construction site, workers are often exposed to hazardous chemicals and fumes that can cause serious health problems. These chemicals can range from paints and solvents to industrial waste and cleaning products. Even when safety measures are taken, these dangerous chemicals can still find their way into the air and onto the skin of workers. This can lead to illnesses like asthma, lung cancer, and skin diseases. In some cases, the exposure can be so extreme that it causes permanent disability or even death.

If you believe that you or a loved one has been injured due to chemical exposure in a worksite, then you need a New York construction accident attorney from Blitz Law Group, LLP who can help you get compensation for the damages.
