Our NYC labor law attorneys understand construction workers build the houses we live in, the schools we learn in and the buildings we work in. Their contributions are vital to our society. However, this kind of work often involves potentially dangerous or life-threatening conditions.
Under labor laws, each state provides certain statutory protections to construction workers. Owners and general contractors are required to provide proper equipment and to maintain the work site in a safe condition. Unfortunately, these statutes are not always followed, resulting in unnecessary workplace injuries.
Injuries can occur from falling off a ladder or scaffold, slipping or tripping on debris, falling materials, collapsing structures, and machinery or equipment malfunction. Workplace accidents are usually very serious and sometimes result in death, which makes it extremely important to secure a lawyer that has the experience and resources to handle these special types of cases.
With one goal in mind—to seek compensation for our clients’ (and their families’) present and future damages—our firm has successfully fought and obtained millions of dollars for our clients injured in workplace accidents. This includes compensation for pain and suffering, lost earnings, medical treatment, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of services and support.
