It seems as if you cannot take a walk in New York City without encountering a construction site. Construction sites can be extremely dangerous, and injuries from New York City construction site accidents can be serious and even fatal. Pedestrians passing by a construction site and construction workers are at risk of suffering life-altering injuries from dangerous and unsafe construction sites. If you have been injured by or at a New York City construction site, please contact our NYC & Queens construction accident attorneys as soon as possible.
New York City Construction accidents can result from scaffolding falls, ladder falls, crane collapses, ceiling collapses, electrical shock, unsafe equipment, dangerous / defective machinery, fires, explosions, falling objects, structure failure, and more. Due to the serious dangers of construction sites, New York Labor Laws require that construction site owners and contractors enforce safety rules and regulations at construction sites. If you have been hurt in a NYC or Queens construction accident, please contact our NYC & Queens construction accident lawyers immediately before your rights to recover compensation for your injuries under the law expire.
Not only are pedestrians and other people passing by construction sites protected under New York law, but construction workers are also protected under New York law. New York has laws in place specifically designed to protect construction workers from construction site / on the job injuries. "The Scaffold Law" allows injured construction workers to sue owners and/or contractors for safety violations related to scaffolding, ladders, hoists, ropes, pulleys, and other devices / work. If you have been injured by or at a NYC or Queens construction site, please contact our NYC and Queens construction accident attorneys right away to preserve your rights under the law.
A number of barriers exist under New York State laws related to work-related accidents, which make it difficult for an injured worker to file a personal injury lawsuit due to a work-related accident, but work-related construction site accidents in New York are different. Injured construction workers can sue property owners and contractors for construction accident injuries. Please contact our NYC & Queens construction accident lawyers as soon as possible to evaluate your case for free.
