Poughkeepsie Construction Negligence Attorneys
Construction workers will tell you that the most dangerous place to be on a job site is next to a partially completed wall. Every year, more than a million builders and contract workers will suffer an injury on a construction site in the United States. Wall, roof and trench collapses are second only to falls from roofs, scaffolds and ladders as the leading causes of injuries and death.
A six-foot dirt trench can drop more than a ton of heavy, wet dirt from one wall, burying the construction worker and crushing bones. An eight-foot cinder-block built of wall weighs as much as fifteen hundred bone-crushing pounds. A typical roof truss weighs 30 pounds and can support many hundreds of times. Falling from a height of eight or ten feet, the fall weight can exceed several hundred pounds.
If you were injured in an accident involving a roof, wall or trench collapse on a construction site, your first call should be to a construction accident trial attorney at Stenger, Diamond & Glass LLP.
