Construction accidents: Construction sites are dangerous, and workers must take every precaution to protect themselves on the job. Employers must provide construction workers with safety equipment such as harnesses, hard hats, gloves, etc., but they are often not worn or connected to an anchor point. Regardless of your experience in construction, you can become seriously injured if safety measures are not in place. Our New York construction law attorneys routinely handle catastrophic injury cases resulting from construction site negligence.
