Unsecured Construction Area
What Should I Do if Injured due to an Unsecured Construction Area?
Construction areas are notoriously hazardous places, both for construction crew workers and for people who visit or pass by. Property owners and general contractors are responsible for ensuring that a construction area is properly secured to protect workers, delivery personnel, inspectors and members of the general public who may be in the vicinity.
If you were injured or if a family member was seriously injured or killed at a New York construction site — whether it was while working there, visiting, or passing by, contact a premises liability lawyer at RGLZ Personal Injury Law to schedule a consultation. We welcome your inquiry and are pleased to offer you a free consultation.
Your Attorney Should Perform an Investigation
An in-depth investigation into the facts behind the injury or fatality in a construction zone will include a review of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) safety regulations. These governmental regulations include rules for the following aspects of construction site operations:
- Fire protection
- Signs, signals and barricades
- Electrical hazard protection
- Materials storage and disposal
Did your child enter a construction zone that was not properly barricaded and suffer a fall injury? Was your spouse injured while engaged in a roofing job? Were you injured while making a delivery to a construction site? Did a family member suffer a serious head injury while walking near a construction zone because of falling debris? Entrust your case for compensation to an experienced, knowledgeable personal injury lawyer.
