Structural Defects Cause Too Many Accidents
Unexpected accidents such as the collapse of walls, floors or roofs at construction sites may be caused by defective materials, faulty building methods or inadequate inspections. Employers who fail to comply with OSHA standards or adhere to standard safety practices can be held liable for injuries that occur as a result. However, it’s not uncommon for an employer to deny wrongdoing, claiming carelessness on the part of an employee who caused a structural collapse.
At Albert Buzzetti & Associates in Englewood Cliffs and New York City, our construction accident lawyers investigate the causes of a structural accident, working with materials experts, forensic specialists and eyewitness testimony. We work aggressively to make sure the facts are clear about liability for your injuries.

- Construction site supervisors who allowed construction safety violations to put workers in harm’s way
- A general contractor or subcontractor that failed to warn workers of known dangers
