Common Issues Leading to Trip & Falls

Under New York Labor Law 241, property owners, general contractors, and other parties can be held responsible for safety precautions on their job sites. This is true even if they are not the party who created the issue. If their negligence led to your injuries, you could pursue a wider range of compensation.

There are many factors that can result in slip or trip-and-fall accidents such as:

  • Construction debris: Site debris, particularly the remnants from cut rebar, wood, cement, metal, and wiring, is a major cause of trip-and-fall accidents on construction sites. When property owners or general contractors fail to keep an area clean and clear of debris, they may be held liable for resulting injuries.
  • Incomplete structures: While a project is underway, incomplete structural elements such as floors, staircases, and conduits may create trip-and-fall hazards. Owners and general contractors are responsible for overseeing construction sites and need to make sure workers are safeguarded against these hazards.
  • Snow and ice: When a building that is under construction is open to the elements, snow and ice can accumulate, creating a high risk of slip-and-fall accidents. These substances ought to be removed from any area where workers are.

Because personal injury claims are not brought against an employer, you can have peace of mind knowing our firm will handle your claim with confidentially and precision. We can also assist with a workers’ compensation claim if you need to file that as well. Whatever the case, be sure to turn to our New York City construction slip and fall lawyers for counsel you can trust.
