As an ever-evolving hub, New York is constantly undergoing construction. From construction projects in the subway, to construction of high-rise buildings, everywhere you travel in the five boroughs you will find improvement projects.
According to The New York Times, construction accidents are on the rise in New York City. This is due to the increase in construction projects, from $32 billion spent in 2008 to $36 billion in 2014.
Some examples of construction project dangers that can result in injury are:
- Faulty scaffolding
- Objects which fall from or off of buildings
- Manholes or other recesses
- Old buildings under construction
- Falls from significant heights or into depths of underground work
- Faulty machines
