Fatal construction injuries are common in New York City

Steep heights, the possibility of unsafe or unfamiliar conditions, and the use of heavy machinery, equipment and materials make the life of a construction worker in New York City a dangerous one.

The duration of their ailment may also be determined based on their prognosis and information available about their condition.

Equipment accidents on New York construction sites

Many different tools and pieces of equipment may be used when a New York construction project is started. From tiny nails and screws to massive cranes and trucks, the building materials, electrical machinery, and additional hardware that must be on hand to complete the project can be extensive. When equipment and tools are properly handled and individuals are trained to use them, many equipment accidents on construction sites can be avoided. However, not all accidents of this nature arise from operator mistakes.
