Construction Accident

If you have been injured in a construction accident in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, Manhattan, Staten Island, lower Westchester and Long Island, you are likely entitled to additional compensation other than just Worker’s Compensation benefits.  It is important to speak immediately with an attorney with extensive knowledge about Construction site accidents.

Under New York law (Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Manhattan, and Staten Island) an employee (construction worker) cannot sue his or her employer for on the job accidents except in very rare circumstances—instead the employee (construction worker) may pursue a Worker's Compensation claim. Worker's Compensation is a form of insurance that pays for lost earnings and medical expenses as well as other benefits. But, Worker’s Compensation usually satisfies only a small percentage of your real damages.  In order to determine whether you may be entitled to a money award, you need a lawyer that is an expert in construction site accidents who knows how to utilize the Labor laws designed to protect the laborer.

Fortunately, in order to recover a full damages award, the construction worker may sue other entities beside his employer who were responsible for the accident.  New York has very strict safety laws (Labor Laws, New York Code, and OSHA) protecting construction workers and enabling them to obtain significant financial recovery.  A New York personal injury lawyer experienced in construction site accidents is vital to determine the proper defendants and laws to utilize in starting a lawsuit.

In fact, owners of buildings, general contractors, subcontractors, architects the manufacturers of the equipment used at the site, and many other parties, may be sued for construction accidents and personal injuries or death.  New York Law Laws 240, 241(6) and 200 are the most common statutes employed in such lawsuits.  We are very experienced with these laws and will maximize your potential money award by utilizing all of the Labor laws that protect your interest.

Many of the construction accidents involve: 1) Workers falling from heights; 2) falling debris striking and injuring workers; 3) falls from elevated equipment, including scaffolding, ladders, and hoists;) 4) injuries caused by heavy equipment or machinery; 5) trips and falls at the construction site, and; 6) Injuries caused by Contractors failing to provide a safe work environment as required by New York City Administrative Code.
