The construction industry can be extremely dangerous. Every day thousands of hardworking New York workers risk injury and even death when heading off to work in the morning. According to NYCOSH (New York Committee for Occupational Safety & Health), New York construction fatalities are on the rise, and nearly all of the sites where fatalities have taken place had safety violations. With this knowledge and the fact that the construction business is booming in New York City, many workers and their families are concerned for their safety.
Many workers are questioning what their options are after sustaining an injury on the job. In order to assist these families and workers, the Bronx construction accident attorneys at Lipsig, Shapey, Manus & Moverman, P.C. are hosting a free webinar event. The webinar will be broadcast via Google Hangouts on Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017 at 6:00 pm and will address some of the most commonly asked questions among injured construction workers in New York.
This event could be helpful to workers who have already been injured at work as well as any individual in the industry, as the steps to take when you are injured on the job will be discussed.
Other topics that will be included are: how to notify your employer of your injury after an accident, seeking proper medical attention, proper steps to take immediately following a work-related accident, and the difference between applying for workers comp benefits and filing a personal injury lawsuit.
