New York City Construction Worker Injury Attorneys
Construction sites in New York are dangerous and workers are at a high risk of suffering serious injuries, especially when property owners and contractors fail to provide for the safety of those workers. In the construction of new buildings, as well as the renovation or modernization of existing buildings, workers who are injured due to negligence have the right to pursue compensation for their medical bills and lost wages.
At The Stein Law Group, PLLC, we have the experience to handle construction accident cases in New York, including those involving third-party claims, as well as workers’ compensation. We have built a strong reputation in New York for our high-quality personal injury representation and have obtained some of the largest verdicts and settlements in the state on behalf of injured construction workers.
Experienced New York Construction Accident Attorneys
In New York, a law known as Labor Law 240 governs the rights of construction workers who have been hurt on the job. If your accident and injuries qualify, the owner of the site or building and/or the general contractor are strictly liable for your injuries. This includes construction accidents such as:
- Scaffolding and ladder accidents
- Heavy machinery accidents
- Falls from heights
- Falling debris
- Forklift and crane accidents
- Burns and electrocution
While our firm can represent workers hurt on any size of construction job, it is important to know that you do not have to be hurt on a gigantic construction site to recover compensation. Even an accident that occurs while putting in a new light fixture in a retail store can qualify for compensation.
