Injuries From Construction Site Slip-, Trip-And-Fall Accidents

Slip-and-fall accidents, as well as trip-and-fall accidents, are not unique to construction sites, but when these accidents occur on a job site, it can be a dangerous situation leading to serious injuries.

Safety precautions must be taken by those securing and operating the job site to ensure the safety of workers. When walkways are obstructed or substances are spilled, workers can become permanently injured in a fall.

At Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C., our exceptional attorneys are committed to standing up for the rights of construction workers who have sustained injuries in a job site slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall.

We have served clients in all types of construction injuries since 1965. We work tirelessly to address all of our clients' needs and recover compensation for their injuries.

Slip-And-Fall Accidents

Whether it had rained on a job site or a substance was spilled, or if there is a failure to perform proper snow and ice removal, any walking surface on a construction site can become very slippery. If proper clean-up does not occur, proper safety precautions are not taken or workers are not properly notified of the unsafe area (through signage or verbal directions), it is a clear-cut case of negligence.

Trip-And-Fall Accidents

When objects are obstructing areas where construction workers need to move or pass through, workers may trip and fall, leaving them with broken bones, serious lacerations and abrasions and other severe injuries. Trip-and-falls can be just as devastating as slip-and-falls, often requiring workers to be out of work and seek extensive medical attention and treatment.

Falls From Heights

Unfortunately, many slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents on a construction site occur high off the ground or on stairways, resulting in a substantial fall. These types of accidents can cause even more devastating injuries such as spinal cord injuries and paralysis, traumatic brain injuries and concussions and penetrating injuries if the worker fell onto an object.
