1 killed, 1 injured in recent construction accident in New York

Authorities are looking into a recent incident at a construction site in New York that left one person dead and another injured. Two men were reportedly hit by falling debris while working on a demolition project. Following a construction accident like this one, it is normal for those involved, or their surviving family members, to question liability, as well as desire compensation for their losses.

Construction workers are relatively likely to get hurt

The construction industry is known for being a dangerous profession in that lots of people in this field get hurt or even die each year. In fact, when one breaks out the statistics, the average construction worker in New York stands a 1 in 10 chance of getting hurt on the job in a given year. The upshot is that, over a lengthy career, a worker will likely get sidelined by an injury at least once.

Marijuana still has no place at high-risk jobs

As anyone in New City or Rockland, Orange and Westchester counties can probably figure out by reading the news, society in the last 20 or so years has taken a far less critical look at the benefits and drawbacks of marijuana. Many states, including New York, allow it for medicinal purposes, and a growing number of states permit its broad use among adults. This change has led to an explosion of legal marijuana dispensaries and growers.

Trenches can pose major safety hazards to workers

Many construction sites in both New City and the surrounding suburban and urban areas of greater New York City will have trenches. This is because workers often have to excavate in order to access underground utilities, lay foundation and do other important tasks.

Cranes, crane operators must follow safety standards

A previous post on this blog talked about a serious crane accident that left several people either dead or severely injured. This accident was just the latest in a string of accidents, most of which affected construction workers in and around the cranes.

Falls take a heavy toll on construction workers

According to an analysis of statistics available through a government agency and other sources, construction workers in the Manhattan area, including Orange, Rockland, and Westchester Counties, as well as the Bronx, are at a high risk of getting hurt because of a fall.
