New York Construction Accident Attorneys
Construction is a necessary but also inherently dangerous industry that can leave workers exposed to a wide variety of construction site accidents and injuries. Any failure on the part of a general contractor, property owner, or machinery manufacturer to make sure that construction sites and construction equipment are safe may result in a devastating accident that causes innocent workers undue injury. In most states in the U.S., construction workers who suffer an injury on the job may not have any legal options available to them outside of pursuing workers’ compensation benefits. However, the state of New York provides further protection for construction workers through certain New York Labor Law statutes, allowing them to pursue compensation from liable property owners or general contractors.

Unfortunately, these parties do not always fulfill their responsibility to workers, resulting in debilitating injuries.
