Gravity-related Accidents and Injuries
Gravity-related injuries are extremely common in the construction business. Injuries from roof falls, scaffold falls, and dangerous falling objects and debris are among the most common — and the most devastating — construction injuries. In many instances, under New York law, a construction worker injured in a gravity related injury cannot be held partially responsible. The insurance company is prevented from claiming you are partially responsible for the accident.

Negligent Safety Procedures
Major construction sites should have site safety managers to oversee the safety components of the work environment and protecting the workers from unsafe weather conditions, dangerous debris on the work site or other hazardous conditions. Some sites simply don't have these people managing the site as they should, and in other cases, the negligence of other crew members causes unsafe conditions on the job.
- Improper signaling
- Construction workers hit by highway drivers
- Run over by construction vehicles
- Construction safety gear
- Improper cleanup and maintenance
- Electrocution and explosion
- Construction site burn injuries

If you are an undocumented alien who has been injured on a construction site, contact us immediately. Don't let anyone (a supervisor or employer) tell you that you will be penalized if you report your injury. You are entitled to receive money for your construction site injuries even if you are an undocumented worker.
