Help for injured workers in a high-risk industry

Many people in Glen Cove and Forest Hills have found the construction industry to be a pathway to success. Unfortunately, it can also be a pathway to injury. It will probably come as no surprise to people in the construction business that there are many career-threatening injuries suffered by workers on building sites each year.

As we discussed a few weeks ago, a full 34 percent of workplace fatalities occur in the construction industry. This is alarming because only 3 percent of all workers work in the construction industry. Construction workplace injuries have increased in number in recent years, and injuries from falls are much more common in New York than the rest of the country.

The attorneys of Chiariello & Chiariello have over half a century's worth of experience serving injured construction workers in Queens. We treat our clients right and help our clients navigate the sometimes complex legal system. Our goal for our clients is full financial recovery, and we never lose sight of the fact that our clients are human beings.

New York construction law has special provisions that apply to workers injured in a construction accident at an elevated height. Labor Law Section 240 is a statute that has helped many New York construction workers injured in falls. We know the ins and outs of construction injury law, and we have helped many injured workers obtain benefits beyond standard workers' compensation.

Our firm offers free initial consultations to workers who want to learn more about their rights. Check out the construction accident page on our website for more information and for a link to contact us.
