Construction sites are naturally hazardous places. Construction workers buzz about in heavy machinery or operate heavy equipment, while sites may be littered with scaffolding, trenches or tunnels, or temporary flooring. Due to the dangers present throughout construction sites, there are numerous federal, state, and local safety regulations and standards for construction work. Unfortunately, no matter how careful construction companies and workers may try to be, construction accidents are still an all-too frequent occurrence. A momentary lapse in concentration or a defective piece of equipment can lead to a catastrophic accident in the blink of an eye, potentially leaving people on or near the site with life-altering injuries.

Astoria is a neighborhood located in the New York City borough of Queens, along the East River. Originally known as Hallet’s Cove for the area’s first landowner, William Hallet, wealthy New Yorkers moved to a portion of the neighborhood in the early 1800s that became known as Astoria Village. The entire neighborhood was eventually renamed Astoria for John Jacob Astor, then the wealthiest man in the U.S., to persuade Astor to invest in the area. Astoria experienced population and economic growth during the rest of the 19th century, with German immigrants establishing furniture, cabinet, and piano-making companies.
