Common Types Of Construction Site Injuries

Construction is consistently ranked as one of the most dangerous occupations in New York City. Construction workers put themselves at risk of serious injury every time they walk onto a job site, frequently putting their lives on the line to get the job done. It is the responsibility of the contractor to take every necessary precaution to ensure the safety of construction workers. When that responsibility is not met and accidents happen, workers can suffer extremely serious injuries.
