Construction Accidents

Working high above the ground presents significant dangers to construction workers. New York's scaffold law, Labor Law Sec. 240, protects workers at elevated heights. This special liability provision to personal injury law allows injured workers to obtain financial compensation in addition to workers' compensation benefits.

Helping Injured Workers Obtain Benefits Beyond Workers' Compensation

Many injured construction workers don't know about New York's scaffold law. They mistakenly believe that they can only receive workers' compensation for a construction accident involving a fall. Workers' compensation does not compensate injured workers for the pain and suffering they have endured. A successful personal injury claim under New York's Labor Law will.

Our New York construction accident attorneys have decades of experience representing workers injured from:

Was a plank or tread grate removed from the scaffolding and you fell to the ground? Were the construction stilts or the harness inadequate to hold you? Was your fall caused because no one was holding the base of the ladder? We can help.

We have years of experience helping construction workers obtain benefits beyond workers' compensation for their lost wages, medical expenses and pain and suffering. If we can prove you were injured in a construction accident involving negligence, we will aggressively pursue a civil lawsuit against the at-fault party to help you recover benefits beyond workers' compensation.
