Types of Construction Site Accidents

Types of Construction Site Accidents

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

If you work in construction, you know certain risks come with the job. While you may accept these risks, you should not accept someone’s careless behavior that leads to a construction accident.

There are many different types of accidents that can occur at a construction site, including:

  • Falls
  • Burns
  • Electrocution
  • Suffocation
  • Occupational illness
  • Explosions
  • Chemical exposure
  • Gas leaks
  • Faulty equipment
  • Cave-ins and collapsing worksites

These accidents can occur if safety standards are ignored, if manufacturers create dangerous equipment and if co-workers act carelessly. Attorney Charles Rock can determine why the accident occurred and if anyone is responsible for your injuries.

Accidents as catastrophic as those listed above can lead to debilitating bodily injury. As you recover from your injury, you will have to deal with medical bills and an inability to work at the same time. Mr. Rock can tell you whether you are entitled to compensation, such as that provided under Labor Law 240 for many types of scaffolding accidents.

If you have been injured in a construction accident, please contact Charles N. Rock, PLLC, to schedule a consultation with an experienced attorney serving Bronx, New York.
