The LI personal injury excavation accident lawyers at Birzon, Strang & Associates have decades of experience in handling of on-the-job personal injury claims, as well as, workers compensation accident claims, relating to excavation accidents. These accidents can happen to excavation workers who are conducting excavation work which often involves such things as digging trenches, pits and troughs, to remove concrete foundations, retaining walls, underpinning, elevator shafts, rock excavation and removal, drilled and grouted ground anchors, concrete vault removal, concrete slab removal, interior demolition, and more. Excavation is often done to install such things as the building of residential basements, swimming pools, machine rooms, parking garages, and other projects for bridges, factories, warehouses, personal residences, industrial plants, removal of industrial tanks, and excavation of land to clear and prepare construction areas to remodel or construct new buildings, construct or rebuild roadways and overpasses, and other construction projects.
Construction excavation often requires the use of heavy equipment, excavation tools and sometimes demolition explosives, which are often necessary due to Manhattans unforgiving hard rock formations. These excavation tools, equipment and explosives, if not utilized properly could cause airborne toxins and damage electric, sewer, fuel, water and telephone lines, and any other underground installations that one could reasonably expect underground in the demolition area. Excavation, heavy equipment, tools, and explosives, can also loosen building materials, debris, and workers tools, at the excavation site which can fall and become a danger to other workers, and the general public. Additionally, the shaking of buildings and structures, scaffolds, ladders, and other temporary platforms can be caused to shake further causing workers to fall and get seriously injured.
The reasons for most of these excavation accidents are due to a failure to comply with established safety measures, defective equipment, improper use of excavation equipment and other work site neglect by the excavation contractor, foremen and others in charge. Our Suffolk law firm is proud to have served seriously injured excavation workers, by bringing excavation accident cases, and workers compensation claims, on their behalf. Excavation worker related injury and wrongful death claims have resulted in multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements, over the years, throughout Long Island and New York State.
As you look around Long Island, one can often see excavation being done at office buildings, shopping centers, schools, places of worship, residential buildings, medical centers, hospitals, schools, industrial areas, roadways, marine structures, transit centers and infrastructure projects, and other places. Construction site excavation, often involves the use of highly lethal explosives, scaffolds, ladders, cranes, jackhammers, heavy equipment, and of course safety equipment, each which, if not utilized correctly, can provide many opportunities for excavation and other construction workers to get hurt, while working, causing serious personal injuries, and unfortunately death.
The Suffolk and Nassau County, Long Island, New York excavation industry requires contractors and workers to acquire licenses, permits, and safety training, and to adhere to certain safety rules and regulations on the excavation job site, which are designed to protect the public and workers at or near the excavation area from being hurt while performing excavation work. These laws and regulations, if not properly followed, often result in worker or pedestrian physical injury, including catastrophic brain, neck, and spinal cord injuries.
