Accidents happen in New York every day, and unfortunately, many of them lead to significant injuries. Car crashes, on-the-job accidents, and other incidents can cause serious medical issues such as brain injuries, broken bones, neck and spine injuries, and more.
Construction sites often prove to be dangerous and can lead to catastrophic injuries. While New York state labor laws and safety regulations are supposed to make construction job sites safe for workers, poor safety standards, unsafe job sites, and unsafe practices and/or neglecting to address safety concerns continue to be a leading cause of construction site accidents.
