New York City is the city that never sleeps - a city that is always changing. No matter where you go in NYC, it seems as though there is always construction going on.

For pedestrians in this city, constant construction poses significant safety risks. According to the New York Post, 59 pedestrians have been injured in construction-related accidents in the past several years. In 2015, one pedestrian was killed when she was hit by a piece of plywood that had been ripped off of a fence by a heavy wind gust.

If you were injured on a construction site in NYC, you may be entitled to compensation.

Examples Of Pedestrian Construction Accidents

Construction companies are supposed to take measures to ensure that construction sites are safe for workers, pedestrians, and passersby. When they fail to take precautionary measures, tragedy can strike. Here are some examples of construction-related accidents that can injure pedestrians:

  • Falling debris
  • Falling glass
  • Falling tools
  • Falling elevator towers
  • Collapsing scaffolding
  • Collapsing floors or walls
  • Improper clean up of construction site, resulting in slip-and-fall accidents

Were you or a loved one injured while walking through a construction site? It is advisable to talk to a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your legal options.
