Fractures can result in costly medical bills and lost wages for New York construction workers.
There are many ways that a construction worker may suffer broken or fractured bones on a New York construction site. Falls from a forklift or ladder, defective equipment, and falling debris are just a few of the many ways that fractures can occur on construction sites. The severity of a broken or fractured bone determines the length of the healing process.
Consequences of On-the-Job Fractures
While some fractures take only a few weeks to heal, others are more serious and may prevent the injured victim from working for several months. In addition, severe broken bones often result in chronic pain and arthritis problems. Fracture injuries can have a major impact on your daily life and result in considerable medical expenses and lost wages. They can limit your ability to work and may require extensive physical therapy or additional surgeries.

Fractures and New York Construction Injury Lawsuits
Falls from scaffolding are one way that a New York construction worker could sustain a fracture injury. The New York Scaffolding Law (Labor Law Section 240) protects workers involved in these types of accidents by placing liability for most scaffolding accidents on the individuals who are responsible for jobsite safety. In this example, an experienced New York construction accident lawyer who is familiar with this area of the law and other applicable statutes can build and defend a case that could recover compensation for the victim's medical bills, lost wages from time out of work, and other damages.
