New York construction sites are plentiful these days, from Essex Crossing and Manhattan West to Bronx Point and Flushing Commons. Although these projects are huge, construction injuries can affect you, no matter how large or small the site. At Belovin Franzblau & Associates, P.C., we have more than 45 years of experience filing third-party injury claims for negligence, faulty equipment and unsafe workspace.
The workplace can be dangerous for countless reasons, from positions that involve the use of a certain type of machinery, heights and hazardous chemicals. It is important for those employed in many industries to be aware of the risk of a traffic collision. Not only do some workers pass away or suffer major injuries while they are driving to or from their place of work, but many are hurt on the job as well. Moreover, fatigue that is caused by overexertion at work or difficulty adjusting to a new schedule is responsible for many of these crashes.
As has been the general trend lately, the U.S. saw a drop in workplace injuries/illnesses last year. This is what recent federal data points to.
