Trip And Fall On Construction Sites
Construction sites have the potential to cause serious injuries to workers as well as pedestrians just walking by. One of the leading causes of injuries on construction sites stems from slips, trips and falls on the premises.
While slip-and-fall accidents are common on any property, those near construction projects may be catastrophic or even fatal due to the materials and objects that are nearby. At Godosky & Gentile, our attorneys combine decades of experience to champion construction trip-and-fall victims across New York City in the fight to secure maximum compensation for their injuries.
Causes Of Construction Site Trip-And-Fall Accidents
As construction sites are not finished properties, there is often a lack of safety measures in place to prevent slips, trips and falls. With the addition of construction equipment and machinery spread across the area, there are dangers at every corner of the site. Some of the most common causes of trip-and-fall accidents on a construction site stem from:
- Uneven surfaces
- Wires and other objects obstructing the path
- Wet floors and surfaces
- Unfinished areas
- Poor lighting
In many instances, property managers and workers fail to keep the area safe for pedestrians walking by. Other times, property managers may not enforce safety standards, which could lead to their workers falling and sustaining serious injuries.
