Construction Accidents

Construction sites are some of the most dangerous places to work, and accidents are all too common. While New York State has enacted strict regulations that mandate safe construction practices, many owners and contractors of construction sites violate these rules and cut corners to save costs, which often results in the death and serious injury of workers. Common construction accidents include:

  • Ladder accidents
  • Scaffold accidents
  • defective or dangerous machinery failure
  • falls from scaffolds
  • objects falling on workers from above
  • trips and falls on debris or equipment improperly stored or scattered

Whenever possible, we look to find other liable parties on the site, besides you employer, who shared in the responsibility for the dangerous condition that caused your accident, and we explore possible third-party liability claims that could increase the size of your recovery beyond the amount available through Workers’ Compensation.

We are available to represent clients in construction accident cases throughout New York.  In these cases we represent clients on a contingency basis, so you will not owe us any fees unless we achieve a recovery for you.
