Life in New York City

New York City is a city that needs little introduction.  NYC is constantly growing and changing and is arguably the economic center of the country and even the world.  All of this development means that construction projects are constantly taking place throughout New York City’s five boroughs.  

Due to the dangers associated with construction sites, workers in New York City are likely to suffer injuries in construction accidents despite worker-friendly laws put into place both by the federal government and New York City.  In fact, New York has more construction accidents than most other states, with the most frequently cited accidents involving falls from ladders and scaffolding throughout the city.

Frequently Asked Questions About New York City Construction Accidents

FAQ: Is workers’ compensation the only available avenue if I have sustained injuries in a NYC construction accident?  

No.  While workers’ compensation might bar your right to see damages via another method in some cases, in others you might be able to recover other compensation.  For example, Labor Law 240 gives New York City construction workers the right to recover compensation from a general contractor who was negligent if the accident involved a fall from heights.  Third parties may also be liable for compensation depending upon your specific case. Our labor accident attorneys are here to help evaluate all potential ways for recovering compensation after your construction accident.

FAQ: Who can be held responsible for injuries I sustained on-the-job in a construction accident?  

Workers’ compensation serves to protect all workers and provide benefits when you’re injured in a workplace accident.  However, it’s important to understand that multiple parties might be responsible for your accident. Our labor accident lawyers can fight to hold negligent contractors, property site owners, engineers, architects, equipment manufacturers and other third parties liable.
