STEPS OUR LAWYERS WILL TAKE TO PROTECT YOU

As a first step, we will schedule your free, private, and confidential meeting with our construction accident lawyers to discuss your case. Following this meeting, we will launch a full investigation into the details of your accident. We will secure all proof available to support your case. Our private investigators will perform a full independent review of the construction site where the accident took place.  We will also obtain any videos showing your accident. In addition to obtaining job site accident reports, we also obtain the results of independent investigations conducted by the New York City Department of Buildings and OSHA. The findings of their investigations will assist us in determining additional responsible parties.
 
Our hardworking lawyers will do whatever it takes to get you the best results.  We will reach out to any of your coworkers that witnessed the accident. Their signed affidavits describing what happened will greatly improve your chances of winning your construction accident lawsuit. It will also help to prevent any “unknown” witnesses from later claiming that the injured worker was the sole cause of his or her accident. If you wait too long to reach out to witnesses, they may refuse to speak about your accident, after becoming adversely influenced by insurance company employees or investigators.

WHAT NEW YORK LAWS PROTECT CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT VICTIMS?

Our experienced construction accident attorneys are very familiar with New York State laws that give special protection to construction workers.  We are prepared to show in court how falling from a height or being struck by a falling object was caused by a violation of Labor Law Section 240(1). Under this law, a worker must be provided with specific safety devices, such as scaffolds or ladders, that protect him or her from falling from a height.  The same law protects workers’ rights when struck by falling objects such as construction materials or debris.  When these types of accidents happen, the law renders the property owner and general contractor strictly liable for workers’ injuries. A violation of this law allows a worker to recover monetary damages from the property owner and/or the general contractor.
 
In addition, under New York Labor Law Section 241(6), we can prove that an owner or general contractor is responsible for failing to comply with the regulations specified within the State’s Industrial Code (Rule 23). Violations of this section occur for multiple reasons. They include, inter alia, falls to an uncovered hole, slips or trips on construction debris left on the floor, or collapses of a trench wall.
 
Finally, we can also show in Court that the New York Labor Law Section 200 protects you in a situation where a contractor failed to provide a reasonable and adequate protection at a construction site.
