Bronx & Queens Construction Accident Attorneys
Representing Injured Construction Workers Throughout the New York Metro Area
New York law provides numerous protections for the construction worker. Many laws hold the owner and general contractor totally responsible for construction accidents. This is especially true for workers that are working at elevated heights, such as on scaffolds and ladders or workers struck by falling objects.
Construction workers have dangerous jobs. Building owners, contractors, and employers should take every precaution to make their jobs as safe as possible. The law requires that construction workers must be provided with proper protection. When a construction company, co-worker, or other sub-contractor allows a workplace injury to occur, workers can bring claims, and file lawsuits to get compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and more.
Our firm, Jacob Oresky & Associates, PLLC, has represented numerous construction workers that were unnecessarily injured through the owners and contractors failure to provide proper protective equipment, manpower, or procedures to protect the worker. The protections of the law are not limited to construction, but also apply to painting, pointing, demolition, repairing, altering or cleaning of a building or structure. There are certain exceptions.
