Construction accidents

Where a worker is injured at a construction site falling from a ladder a roof or a scaffolding, or other worksite injury or elevated distance.
New York’s labor law does not permit property owners to ignore the unsafe practices of contractors. If you are a construction worker, New York law requires both the property owner and the general contractor to provide you with a safe place to work. Yet, every year there are hundreds of very serious injuries as a result of construction site accidents such as:

It is not unusual for construction workers to work in precarious locations without the proper safety equipment. All too often, construction workers are required to perform work at dangerous elevations and are not given adequate ladders, scaffolding, or safety lines to prevent a serious accident from occurring. New York law does not permit property owners from turning a blind eye to the unsafe practices of contractors on their property. Our firm has achieved tremendous results in obtaining compensation for clients who have been injured at construction sites due to defective ladders, lack of safety equipment, unstable scaffolds and defective machinery.

If you have suffered a workplace injury a third party action may be brought against a responsible party, other than your employer. This is especially common on construction sites where multiple contractors are present at the same time. The suit may be brought against a general contractor, a subcontractor, a property owner, a vendor, or other party who make have caused your injury. Third-party lawsuits go beyond the coverage levels of Workers’ Compensation, and may include pain and suffering, and even punitive damages.
