Compensation For Falls, Scaffolding Collapses And More
Our accomplished trial lawyers have handled many construction-related accidents over the past 20-plus years, including significant recoveries for a construction worker who fell off a pickup truck and for another employee who was badly hurt when he fell into an excavation hole.
Although employees cannot generally sue their employers, New York’s Labor Law and other statutes allow construction workers to bring suit against the building owner, general contractor, other subcontractors or third parties such as equipment manufacturers.
We handle all types of construction site injuries:
- Crane accidents and heavy equipment accidents
- Building collapse and excavation cave-ins
- Falls from scaffolding or ladders
- Falls from roofs and other heights
- Fires and explosions
- Electrical shock injuries
- Slip-and-falls and trip-and-falls
- Falling objects
- Machinery accidents
- Failure of harnesses and safety equipment
Property owners and contractors can be held responsible for negligent acts, tripping hazards, code violations, failure to provide personal protective equipment and other unsafe conditions contributing to construction zone accidents. A personal injury lawsuit may provide damages above and beyond workers’ comp benefits, including loss of projected earnings and damages for pain and suffering.
