Statistics on construction worker deaths due to falls

The Occupational Health and Safety Administration takes a special interest in falls that injure workers at construction sites. As we've seen in recent weeks on our Syracuse workers' compensation law blog, there are a number of reasons why falls from roofs, scaffolds or ladders warrant greater attention in the community, including the severity of injuries and the complexity of a claim for compensation.

Standing up for construction workers injured in falls

Let's continue our discussion of construction-related accidents and injuries this week with a point of particular interest to our Utica readers. Falls from roofs, scaffolds or ladders are all too common, especially given just how much of their time construction workers spend up off the ground while performing their work.

Construction accident injuries require bold representation

The past couple of weeks, our blog has focused on construction workers' accidents and how, by filing a lawsuit, third parties may be held liable for damages suffered in those accidents. As readers of this blog know, far too many risks are posed in the workplace, and oftentimes workers find themselves hurt on the job. Typically, the first step is to file a workers' compensation claim. Since, as mentioned in previous posts, this is a no-fault system, you do not have to prove that your employer's negligence caused your harm.

Who bears liability for a construction site accident? (Part 2)

Let's pick right up where we left off last week with a look at the different parties on a construction site who might bear third-party liability when workers are injured in a construction accident. These kinds of details could mean that a construction worker has a chance to obtain compensation through a personal injury claim, even above and beyond any workers' compensation benefits to which he or she is entitled.
