Injuries Due To Insufficient Concrete Forms And Shores

Concrete work is a very specialized craft that requires a great deal of skill, and there are a number of critical issues that need to be considered.

Perhaps the most important issue is the installation of the shores and forms. Without adequate shores and forms, not only will the finished product likely be flawed, but the safety of everyone working on the job is put at unnecessary risk.

Committed To The Safety Of New York City Concrete Workers

Specific regulatory requirements govern how concrete shores and forms are to be set up and what safety precautions must be taken at each stage of the process. When these requirements are not met, the contractor, subcontractor, equipment supplier or manufacturer and others can all be held liable for the injuries that happen as a result.

The attorneys at Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C., have the skill and experience to represent clients in cases involving injuries due to insufficient concrete shores and forms.
