Construction Workers Accidents

If you have been injured working at a job performing construction, or maintenance, of any building or structure you may be able to receive money for your injuries.  New York’s Labor Law provides special protections for workers in the construction and demolition trades.  There are even special laws for workers who are injured in a fall from height.   In some cases the owner of the property and/or the general contractor may be responsible under the laws that protect workers who can be injured in a fall.    Our lawyers understand these laws and have represented clients who have recovered money after being injured in construction accidents.  In some cases even when the Labor Law does not apply to the accident there still may be a claim under general negligence principles.  Please call us and we will see what laws can be applied to get you the recovery you deserve.
