Sadly, construction related accidents are not uncommon in the New York City tri-state area. Due to the high volume of real estate development and construction projects in the area, we see a higher number of construction site accidents in this area, despite New York labor laws intended to protect the safety of workers and keep construction-related accidents from occurring. Under New York law, construction companies are required to inspect each site with safety engineers to implement safety measures. The sad reality is that not every employer follows these procedures and prioritizes the safety of their workers. Construction accidents can be prevented and construction companies need to be held accountable.
