Construction Site Slip and Trip and Fall Attorneys
SLIP AND FALL ON A CONSTRUCTION SITE
When a construction worker does his job, it is important that he can walk safely around the job site. New York law requires that all floors, walkways, scaffolds, platforms and other elevated work surfaces be free of slippery conditions such as ice, snow, water, grease and other substances that can cause workers to slip and lose their balance. When a worker slips and falls because he or she failed to remove, sand, cover, or provide a safe base for slippery substances, the injured worker can establish a claim for fair compensation for his or her injuries.
TRIP AND FALL AT A CONSTRUCTION SITE
New York law and regulations require that all corridors and work areas be kept free of tripping hazards, including debris and other objects. If tripping hazards are not eliminated from aisles and work areas, workers can fall and cause serious injury. The requirement that walkways and work areas remain free of tripping hazards ensures that work can be done safely throughout the work site. When a worker falls due to failure to properly maintain safe conditions and trip hazard-free work aisles, the injured worker can file a claim for fair compensation for his or her injuries.
