As you look around Long Island, the increase in the construction and remodeling of office buildings, shopping centers, schools, places of worship, medical centers, parking decks, transit centers and infrastructure projects is steadily increasing. These construction projects often involve the use of cranes, scaffolds, ladders, elevated power tools and equipment, temporary platforms, high fences and barriers, man lifts, spider lifts, demolition equipment and explosives, high power electrical lines and poles, steel frame structures, and of course safety equipment, each of which, if not utilized properly, can provide ample opportunities for construction area workers to fall from heights, while working, causing fall related serious personal injury accidents, and fall related wrongful death. It is important that you speak with a construction area fall lawyer at Birzon, Strang, and Associates, and let us help you get compensation for your serious fall injury.
The Long Island, NY construction industry employs a many laborers and trades people, who often work from great heights, including painters, welders, electrical pole workers, carpenters, heavy equipment operators, electricians, pipe-fitters, roofers, and structural iron and steel workers. These construction contractors and workers are required to acquire licenses, permits, and safety training, and to adhere to certain safety rules and regulations on the job site, relating to working from heights, which if not properly followed, cause construction area fall accidents and falls from heights, often resulting in worker physical injury and sometimes, even death.
In New York, including Long Island and Nassau and Suffolk Counties, if you are injured by falling from heights on-the-job, in the normal course of your employment, through your own actions, or those of a co-worker, you are covered by workers compensation, which your employer is required by law to provide. For example, if you are working for a painting company and fall from a ladder while painting, because you forgot to put on your safety harness, that would entitle you to workers compensation, which in fact, often does not cover all your medical and other related expenses.
