Is Your Employer Putting You at Risk?

There are some accidents that your construction employer cannot prevent because they are not reasonably foreseeable. However, there are other accidents that are reasonably foreseeable and your employer has a legal and ethical responsibility to protect you from those types of accidents.

For example, if you are a road construction worker then you are at risk of struck by accidents. The threat of these accidents is inherent in your work and well documented by past injuries and fatalities. Your employer should, therefore, take steps to protect you from struck by accidents. These steps will differ depending on the regulations applicable to your work and your unique job site. However, some things to consider include:

  • Barriers, signs and other warning signals to passing traffic that a road construction site is there.
  • Communication procedures for vehicles used on the construction site.
  • Warning signals when a vehicle is backing up.
  • Requiring workers to wear brightly colored clothing/vests and hard hats so they can be easily seen.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a New Jersey or New York road construction accident, then you may be entitled to damages, particularly if your construction employer was negligent in protecting you.
