Shaw Kreizer Trial & Injury Lawyers Protect Clients’ Rights in Construction Related Injury Cases

by admin | November 28th, 2016

As the construction industry continues to boom, the rates of accidents, injuries, and deaths are increasing.

In 2015, there were over 400 accidents and injuries on worksites in New York and the surrounding areas.

Also in 2015, a 22-year-old construction worker was killed when a trench he was working on collapsed and he was covered by pounds of dirt and debris. Prosecutors found that the supervisors were warned of the potential hazards of the trench, but their warnings were ignored.

A few people were injured that day, and a man lost his life because some people ignored the warning signs, rules, and regulations.

When it all comes down to it, it’s the job of injury lawyers to take on these cases, fight for their clients’ rights, and prevent further unnecessary and disastrous accidents and deaths.

How We Can Help

If you are ever injured in a construction accident, we here at Shaw Kreizer Trial & Injury Lawyers can help you obtain the proper compensation. Our experts will search high and low for untapped financial resource streams that will provide you relief from your financial and emotional hardship resulting from the accident.

In the case of the unlawful death of the construction worker in New York, a third party was at fault for the accident. They did not follow the safety measures and an accident occurred. It is the job of the general contractors and supervisors to make sure that safety measures are followed, and that the employees are using caution while working. If these safety measures are not put in place, they become liable for any accidents that happen under their supervision.

Construction workers need to constantly remain cautious and aware of site conditions and take the appropriate steps to stop avoidable accidents from happening. At Shaw Kreizer Trial & Injury Lawyers, we are on your side and will make sure that you not only receive compensation for injuries, but make it known to the appropriate parties that workplace hazards should not be taken lightly and should be avoided at any cost by enforcing safety protocols.
