Injured at a Construction Site in New York?
Every year, thousands of workers are injured or killed at New York construction site accidents.
Despite laws requiring property owners and construction companies to inspect each site with engineers and safety consultants and implement a wide variety of safety measures, construction workers still face a greater risk of work-related injury or fatality than employees in any other U.S. industry.
The New York State labor laws were specifically designed to protect workers from construction site and height-related accidents.
It is for this reason that we believe that most of these accidents are avoidable by the exercise of reasonable care and that those who fail to follow the laws and continue to compromise worker safety should be held accountable.
Although individuals may be entitled to receive worker’s compensation benefits as a result of a construction or work site accident, the amounts received are almost never enough to fully cover lost wages, medical bills, and other related expenses incurred.
In New York, victims of construction accidents may be entitled to financial compensation for their injuries, including economic damages, such as medical bills, lost earnings, and the cost of future medical treatment, as well as non-economic damages, like pain and suffering and emotional trauma.
