Unfortunately, there are plenty of ways to injure yourself on a construction site. Even the smallest incident could potentially have long term effects if not addressed as soon as possible. This is why we encourage you to seek medical attention right away! By seeking medical attention—even if some time has passed—you will be better off. Along with your medical report, it’s crucial to start documenting the specifics surrounding the incident such as date, times, location, witnesses, etc., and together, with the help of the construction accident attorneys at Greenberg & Stein, we can start gathering facts for your case.

There has been an increase of construction accidents within the last few years, especially with the decrease in safety inspections. The number of deaths relating to construction work has dramatically increased from 17 in 2011 to 25 in 2015. Thanks to an article, published in the New York Daily News, you can see the stark contrast and correlation to the rise of deaths and injuries in the construction industry and the decline of safety inspections by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Furthermore, you can track the number of construction accidents each year with this graph. What does this mean for you? It means this could have potentially been a preventable accident, and, most importantly, you are not alone!
