The recent and tragic construction accident at York University is a sad reminder of the dangers that exist with construction, particularly where cranes or other heavy equipment are involved. While the York University construction accident is still under investigation, there is no doubt that people are injured everyday on the work site in accidents that could have been avoided. Far too often, workers are killed or injured because of defective or poorly maintained equipment, inadequate training of workers and supervisors, an improperly set up construction site, or because safety equipment was not used or improperly used. Some of the more common injuries in construction settings are falls from height, and crush injuries resulting from large equipment.
As a former defence lawyer, I acted regularly on behalf of large multinational companies that were involved in the design and construction of major infrastructure. Unfortunately, I observed first hand the perils that exist on large construction sites and the devastating consequences of seemingly avoidable events. The invaluable experience that I learned in defence of catastrophic claims now serves as an asset to my clients that have been injured.
