We can help you understand and assert your rights. At Oresky & Associates, PLLC, we have assisted many New York City workers with getting compensation for their harm through the New York Labor Law, and we can help you as well.

When workers are injured in accidents related to erecting a building, they often think that they have no recourse other than workers’ compensation. This is often not true. The New York Labor Law protects construction workers and those in construction-related trades, such as plumbers, electricians, carpenters, demolition workers, asbestos handlers, painters, helpers and others. Sections 200, 240, and 241 offer construction workers certain rights to recover compensation, such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more. These cases are pursued in civil court rather than through the administrative procedures of workers’ compensation.
