Construction site managers, general contractors and others in charge of a construction sites often ignore hazardous working conditions and put employees and construction workers in perilous and high risk situations. A top Rhode Island personal injury lawyer who is also a RI construction accident attorney will hold the negligent tortfeasor liable for their malfeasance. It is not acceptable for construction site managers to put construction workers in risky and unsafe working conditions

Crane accidents and scaffolding fall accidents are by no means the only types of construction accidents necessitating construction site negligence litigation. There are a multitude of other types of construction accidents including but not limited to: operator equipment accident, exploding compressors, ladder mishaps, welding accidents, cutting accidents, building collapse, structural failures, forklift accidents, nail gun incidents and building collapse. Other types of Rhode Island construction mishaps include a trench collapse, crane and lift accidents as well as structural collapses.

The statistics establish that construction is one of the most hazardous commercial and industrial activities. In order for a site to be safe for construction workers management must give careful attention to safety measures. The most predominate types of these types of deadly construction accidents are falls, workers being struck by objects (falling, or swinging),as well as electrocutions. According to OSHA, “Out of 4,386 worker fatalities in private industry in calendar year 2014, 899 or 20.5% were in construction-that is, one in five worker deaths last year were in construction.” https://www.osha.gov/oshstats/commonstats.html

Bicycle accidents in New York City have killed more people in 2016 than in previous years. A recent article in the NY Daily News looks back at some of the accidents that occurred this year and how they could have been prevented. Many fatal accidents took place in areas that have been designated by Vision Zero programs to be re-engineered because they were too dangerous for bicyclists and pedestrians. Unfortunately not every community board is pedestrian and bicyclist friendly. Some of the deadly bicycle accidents occurred in areas where community boards rejected Vision Zero projects to make streets safer. When asked to comment about the steep increase of bicyclists dying in traffic accidents in the city, the Department of Transportation replied that the streets of New York City have never been as safe as Today. Statistically, compared to the estimated number of daily bike rides, the number of severe injuries or deaths related to bike accidents is at its lowest. According to DOT calculations cyclists were 72% safer in 2014 than in 2000. The DOT estimated that in 2014 420,000 people were riding a bike everyday in New York City. That is almost triple the amount of 2000.

If the life of your loved one was lost in a fatal car crash, you are likely dealing with the immense sadness, shock and disbelief that they are no longer here. If the car, truck or motorcycle accident was the result of another driver’s carelessness, recklessness or negligence, you are likely feeling angry while hoping to seek justice against those at fault for your loss. Even though there is no level of compensation that can bring your loved one back, you are likely ready to discuss your rights to hold those responsible financially accountable for the death.

Hiring a RI personal Injury attorney or wrongful death lawyers in RI can help deal with the challenges you now face. A skilled Providence or East Providence personal injury law firm with years of experience in handling car accident wrongful death cases or personal injury causes of action can assist you in navigating the process of receiving financial recovery from every party at fault for the crash. Legal experience is important because the complexities of the auto insurance law and civil tort lawsuits to obtain compensation in Rhode island and Providence Plantations can be challenging at best when going it alone.

In many cases, there are multiple parties legally responsible for the crash. The RI accident may have occurred through negligence by another driver, from faulty equipment caused by an automotive design defect or flawed manufacturing process, or bad roadways caused by a lack of maintenance. The death of your loved one might have resulted from an individual driving under the influence (DUI) who is simultaneously facing criminal charges. The accident might have only involved a single vehicle, which can often make it difficult to determine exactly who or what is at fault for the motor vehicle or car crash.

What's the #1 most dangerous mistake a car accident victim in Michigan can make? Not telling - or being perceived as not telling - the truth to his or her auto insurer. It can cost a person a lawsuit and/or all of his or her legal rights to collect No Fault PIP benefits.
Based on victim’s ‘blatant inconsistency’ and ‘false statement,’ court rules ‘all coverage is forfeited’ including ‘claim for medical benefits’

A 39 year old old man suffered critical injury after he was hit by car in the Bronx, NYC. The accident occurred Saturday night around 3:00 am on East Tremont Ave near Waterbury Ave. East Tremont Ave between Williamsbridge Road and Bruckner Boulevard is one the most dangerous corridors in New York City. According to the NYC Department of Transportation, hundreds of people were injured in car accidents on this specific segment between 2009 and 2013. Among them, 21 people were severely injured or died. In 2015, as part of the Vision Zero Initiative, the DOT proposed to the Community Board to re-engineer East Tremont Ave to make it safer ( click below for link to DOT proposal ). The proposal included a reduction from 4 to 2 traffic lines with a center turn lane as well as the construction of pedestrian islands. The proposal which didn’t include any bike lanes was turned down by the community board. However after a bicyclist died on this segment last June, the DOT by-passed the community board decision and confirmed it would implement the safety measures. (see more in Streetsblog).

The New York City Department of Buildings announced earlier this year that 12 people died in construction accidents in New York City in 2015 but the real number is 18. According to a recent article in Crain’s, the New York City Department of Buildings only counts deaths that are related to a violation of the city’s construction code. Among the deaths that the city didn’t count were a hard hat who fell to his death in an elevator shaft, a safety coordinator crushed by a crane, a worker who fell from a ladder and a truck driver who was sucked into a concrete truck shaft. Following these deaths, OSHA issued safety violations for each case. However the DOB didn’t and also didn’t add them to the total number of New York City construction accident deaths in 2015. A few days ago, when asked about it, Mayor de Blasio just brushed off the issue and said “I think the issue at hand has to do with some jurisdictional differences, DOB versus OSHA and differences of reporting”. This indeed means that on average for 1 death of a construction worker out of 3, the Department of Buildings considers that the cause of the death is not an issue related to workplace safety. Therefore not only is a man dead but nothing is being done by the city to prevent it from happening again.

This dry cleaner has damaged three of my suits yet they refuse to take responsibility for doing the damage. They handed me a pile of industry propaganda horsecrap stating that the manufacturer was responsible. These suits were relatively high end designers. After i showed them two damaged suits they still refused responsibility. Now three suits are damaged by them. These were less than 1 year old suits. Now nearly all my suits are damaged and on two occasions they have denied, deflected and refused to accept responsibility. They wont own up and admit when they have made a mistake. I went back to Mens Wearhouse and told them that they were blaming Joseph Abboud for this and they laughed in their face. Since speaking to management and asking for them to act reasonably is not working I feel I have to take this out on the blogs and look into a rip off report.

I went to the urgent care facility at Southcoast in Fairhaven, the day of travelling for a week long family cruise. I told the doctor that I was leaving the country on that date and it was important that I felt better for this cruise. He did not seem to care how I felt on my vacation. I requested antibiotics. He basically told me to take advil and gave me a nasal spray prescription. He refused to give me an antibiotic or any meaningful medication for my illness. He basically ruined my week because I was sick the entire cruise. After the cruise, I went to another urgent care and they gave me an antibiotic and other meds and I felt better after 12 hours. I was surprised to get a call from the nurse at this urgent vare following up on how I was doing. When, I told her about my issues she refused to let me speak with doctor or get the med I should have received. Why bother wasting my time with a follow up call if your not going to do anything? It also gave me false hope that they would do something to help me. The doctor did not give a crap that I wanted to feel better for my vacation. He was callous and unhelpful.
