Head injuries in the New York construction industry are commonly caused by falls from heights.
Many New York construction workers wear hard hats in order to prevent head injuries. Despite this safety precaution, construction workers are vulnerable to several types of serious head injuries, including concussions, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), and closed-head injuries. Concussions are caused by a blow to the head and result in a temporary loss of awareness. While most people fully recover from concussions within a few hours to a few weeks, repeated concussions or a severe concussion may require surgery or cause problems with movement, learning, or speaking.
Workers' compensation insurance may not be enough to cover the medical bills, lost wages, and other complications that a head injury can introduce into its victims' lives. If a third party, such as a contractor, property owner, or construction company, fails to ensure adequate safety for New York construction workers, that party may be liable for the injuries that result from its negligence.
