Repair work regarding maritime vessels can involve many things. Sometimes, painting or repainting surfaces on or in a vessel is part of such work.
Construction sites can have a lot of vehicles operating in them, such as dump trucks and forklifts. Unfortunately, work site accidents sometimes occur involving such vehicles. One type of accident that sometimes comes up in construction work is a backover accident. This is when a person is hit by a vehicle that is backing up.
The complex nature of maritime law is not the only reason why promptly seeking out the advice of a skilled maritime accident attorney can be so important for maritime workers following suffering a job-related injury. Another reason is that a hurt maritime worker can, rather soon after their injury occurred, encounter situations where what they do and say could have significant ramifications regarding their legal situation when it comes to their injury.
It appears that 2016 might be a year of a fair amount of employment growth in the construction industry. In a recent survey of construction firms, 71 percent of the respondent firms indicated that they anticipate increasing their workforce this year. One wonders if a fair number of construction sites here in New York City will be seeing an influx in new workers this year.
Look both ways before crossing the street.
