The experienced Personal Injury Attorneys at Andrews, Bernstein, Maranto & Nicotra know the dangers construction workers face every day. Too often, profits are put ahead of safety, resulting in serious personal injuries to construction workers. New York State has laws specifically designed to protect workers who are injured on a construction site. Proper safety protection must be provided by owners of buildings and general contractors for all workers. This includes but is not limited to: providing safety devices such as harnesses; preventing dangerous debris from accumulating; and preventing workers from being struck from falling objects.
We represent workers injured by many different types of construction accidents, including:
- Injuries sustained in falls from heights, such as scaffolding, a ladder, roof, etc.
When a worker falls from a height – off of scaffolding, a ladder, etc.– it can cause particularly serious injuries. New York State Labor Law 240 requires that proper safety protection be provided by owners of buildings and general contractors for all workers while operating at a height. This includes harnesses, lifelines, and other equipment designed to prevent such falls.
- Injuries sustained during demolition or excavation;
- Injuries sustained when struck by a falling object; and
- Injuries sustained as a result of many other dangerous conditions on the job site or construction site.
These types of incidents can result in serious, debilitating injuries where a worker’s ability to earn wages and provide for their family in the future is threatened. We will aggressively pursue all legal remedies for the worker, including: compensation for pain and suffering; lost wages; medical bills; etc.
