Can I sue for a construction injury if I was drunk on the job?

It is common knowledge that construction work is dangerous and has one of the highest rates of workplace injuries and fatalities. Workers' compensation claims and lawsuits are normal and encourage employers to do all they can to make the site as safe as possible for workers.

Third-party lawsuits in the construction industry

The construction industry is notorious for being one of the most dangerous jobs in America. Workers face everything from falls to exposure to toxic chemicals and harsh weather. In 2015, over 21 percent of all employee deaths were in construction alone, and fatalities in this sector increased by nearly 6 percent in 2016, records the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Why are injuries so common in construction work?

Brooklyn is known for its vibrancy and thriving metropolitan environment. Part of this allure is the promise of evolution; the scenery is constantly changing as buildings are renovated, torn down and newly constructed. The latter of these--construction--is a constant. No matter where you go, you are likely to see scaffolding and construction zones making way for new buildings.

That's because there are an estimated 180 collisions per year at the intersection, making it the most dangerous intersection in Brooklyn, according to information compiled from the city’s motor vehicle collision data set.
