Construction is one of the most dangerous work sectors in the United States. Each year, hundreds of thousands of workers are injured or killed in the construction sector. The most common safety hazards on site are falls from height, trip and fall injuries, motor vehicle crashes, excavation accidents, electrocution and being struck by falling objects.
Due to the high number of construction site related injuries and deaths, New York State has enacted a host of statutes under the New York State Labor Law designed to protect and compensate workers (and visitors) for injuries sustained at construction sites.
If you were injured in a construction related accident, it is critical to have your case reviewed by an experienced attorney. Time is of the essence. Contractors and their insurance companies act quickly to protect themselves at the expense of unsuspecting victims. As such, it is advisable to consult an experienced attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights.
An experienced attorney will level the playing field against large contractors and their insurance companies who have teams of lawyers trained to protect their interests against those asserting claims.
