Construction workers' accidents: Man killed on job site

Construction sites in New York or elsewhere around the country can be hazardous areas, regardless of the size of the facility being constructed. Heavy materials, operating equipment and the locations themselves all contribute to the potential hazards. Construction workers' accidents can result in serious injury and, unfortunately, in some incidents, death. A man recently lost his life in another state following an accident at his workplace.

A 56-year-old man was at his job at a construction site where a casino was being built. He was operating an excavator when some construction material fell on the vehicle's cab. The man was injured and was transported to a local hospital. He later died at the hospital as a result of those injuries, according to company reports. The medical examiner will determine the cause of death, according to the district attorney.

The man was a subcontractor on the site, and the company is conducting an investigation to determine the cause of the accident. Officials from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration have also opened an investigation of the incident. The state's gaming commission stated that it would defer to these local and federal organizations. Around 1,500 employees continued to work on the job site following the accident.

Fatal construction workers' accidents of this nature are devastating to families. Survivors may contact a New York personal injury attorney should they decide to pursue wrongful death litigation against the companies involved. There may be evidence that safety procedures were not in place or were not effectively communicated. While a successful outcome in a lawsuit can never bring back a lost loved one, a monetary award can help families offset some unexpected expenses.
