Wrongful Deaths on Construction Sites
The construction industry is one of the most dangerous career fields in which to work, according to numerous reports and studies.

This type of tragedy can devastate a worker’s family, both emotionally and financially. While nothing can ever make up for this type of loss, financial compensation from a wrongful death lawsuit can help the family to manage the costs of this tragedy.

Causes of Construction Site Wrongful Deaths
There are a number of different ways in which a construction site accident could turn fatal. The following are some of the most common:
- Electrocution accidents
- Exposure to toxic substances
- Falls from elevated heights
- Collisions with moving vehicles
- Being struck by falling objects
Because New York labor laws state that it is the responsibility of construction site contractors or property owners to ensure that workers are not unnecessarily put in danger by providing a safe work environment, they can be held financially responsible when a worker dies while on the job.
