Unsafe Construction Site Accident Lawyers The boroughs of New York City are among the most densely populated areas in the United States. With land at a premium, many construction projects involve building higher and higher structures. Anytime cranes, lifts or hoists carry materials from lower ground to higher ground, there is a danger of dropping building materials or other objects. Workers performing their job duties at heights could accidentally drop tools. When these or other objects plummet to the ground, any person below is at risk for traumatic brain injury (TBI), other life-threatening injuries or death.
