New York Vehicle Accidents Attorneys
Working on a construction site can put the health and well-being of a worker at considerable risk. One such danger that is particularly prominent for construction sites near roads or those that require the use of large vehicles is a vehicle accident. When a property owner, general contractor, or construction company fails to adequately provide a safe environment for construction workers, whether by failing to post construction signs warning other motorists, failing to train other employees in how to operate large vehicles, or not promptly addressing dangerous situations, they may be held financially liable for any resulting injuries according to New York labor laws.
An accident involving a large vehicle on a construction site can leave workers with devastating injuries, the consequences of which may affect them for the rest of their lives. We believe no one should have to bear this burden alone and, as such, work diligently to hold the responsible party financially accountable.

In addition to these vehicles potentially malfunctioning or being operated unsafely/improperly, a construction worker may be unnecessarily harmed by a passing motorist. These accidents can largely be avoided or mitigated when a property manager or general contractor in charge of a construction site provides adequate safety protections.
