New York City Utility Worker Accidents

Experienced NYC Construction Accident Lawyers On Your Side

Utility workers in New York City are offered various protections to ensure safety on the job. Unfortunately, there are many times when utility workers are put in high-risk positions. This can result in a serious accident and subsequent injuries. Because of the situations utility workers are often in, the injuries sustained after an accident can be catastrophic or life-threatening.

Whether you are working in the sewers of New York City or climbing an electrical pole to provide repairs, it’s important to make sure you are provided protection.

Call today at (212) 577-9325 for a free consultation.

What Kind of Accidents Can Happen?

Utility workers are often put in dangerous situations when they are performing repairs or maintenance. For instance, they may be checking gas leaks in enclosed quarters. If a mistake occurs, it can cause a serious explosion. Utility workers often work at heights, and if not properly harnessed, can fall and suffer broken bones or traumatic injury to the spine or head. If proper safety gear is not provided during these work conditions, a personal injury claim may be filed on behalf of the injured individuals.

Learn Your Legal Options Today

When a person sustains an injury in a utility accident, it is important to determine the exact cause. This will go a long way in helping you obtain compensation in a successful claim. Determining the cause can also help you determine who was at fault. For instance, if you fell from a high electric pole because the safety equipment provided to you was worn and not maintained, your employer may be at fault. If you are in an enclosed place with another worker and he or she does something negligently that causes you harm, that other employee may be at fault.

Our team at The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C. works together to determine the exact cause and help our clients seek compensation after a utility accident. Compensation can help cover the medical costs incurred as a result of the injury, as well as lost wages and other damages. With more than 30 years of experience, our firm knows what it takes to help our clients move forward in the most beneficial way possible.
