Claims Based on Accidents Related to Renovations

Construction renovation projects involve making improvements to an existing building or structure. Renovations may pose significant safety risks for workers. Building renovations, for example, may require gutting a structure and moving materials and equipment up and down between floors. This can create risks of workers falling from heights and heavy objects falling on workers. Construction workers who are injured in renovation accidents may think that they have no legal options beyond workers’ compensation, but this is far from the complete picture in many cases.

Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

What is the Average Settlement for a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?
Since medical malpractice covers such a wide variety of injuries and scenarios, there is no average settlement amount for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Furthermore, many individual factors can affect a settlement’s amount, such as the injury’s permanence and impact on your job and whether your case settles out of court. When thinking about your malpractice case, remember that it is a  personal injury with losses. Malpractice is then subcategorized into different types, each with its own area.  To learn more, please read our full article here.
Do I Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?
You do not need a personal injury lawyer, but one can benefit you in many ways following an accident resulting in serious physical harm. Severe injuries can lead to expensive medical care, extended absences from work, pain and suffering, and other damages. Read our full article to find out more about when it's right to hire a personal injury lawyer. 
Who do I sue for my injuries in a car accident case?
Claims for car accidents are usually made against the insurance companies for the owners and operators of the vehicles involved in the car accident. Sometimes a driver’s employer, a business entity or other party may need to be added to the claim and future lawsuit. Make sure that all of the proper parties are made part of your case so that you receive the compensation that you are entitled to.
How Much Can I obtain from a Car Accident Settlement?
Several factors influence the amount you might obtain from a car accident settlement. The seriousness of your injury plays a significant role in determining this amount, as it affects your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and many other types of damages. The amount of insurance coverage available plays another significant part in the outcome of your settlement. Of course, a lawyer’s experience building personal injury cases, handling insurance companies, and negotiating fair settlements is yet another important consideration in this equation. Want to learn more about car accident settlements? Read our full article here.
What questions should I ask a personal injury lawyer?
When searching for a personal injury lawyer, you should ask questions about their experience, services and results.  You only have one chance to recover and finding the right lawyer can make a big difference in the final outcome of your case, the level of services that you receive, and the amount of compensation that you are awarded.   Want more information? Read our full article here.
What does a personal injury lawyer do?
Personal injury lawyers help victims recover compensation for injuries and damages that someone else’s negligence caused. They do this by helping clients with insurance claims and/or civil lawsuits. Want to learn more? Read our full article here.
Can I bring a car accident lawsuit if I am undocumented?
Personal injury lawsuits can be brought without regard to your immigration status. Even if you are undocumented you have the right to sue for money damages for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering.
What is a deposition?
A deposition or EBT (examination before trial) is an opportunity for the defendants’ lawyers to ask you questions under oath about how your accident occurred. Depositions are normally conducted in an attorney’s office or the office of the court reporter who is transcribing your testimony. All parties are usually deposed.
Know Your Rights

NYC Construction & Renovation Accident Laws

Sections 200, 240, and 241(6) of the New York Labor Law offer special protection to many of the workers who are injured in construction accidents. These laws require certain property owners, and contractors to meet non-delegable duties to workers, which means that they can be liable even if they hired other companies to do certain tasks or keep the construction site safe. When a worker is injured due to violations of Sections 200, 240, or 241(6), they are often entitled to compensation above and beyond workers’ compensation benefits.

Section 200 requires owners and contractors to take reasonable steps to provide safe environments for workers. If a worker is seriously injured due to an unsafe workplace, that worker will likely be entitled to compensation.

Section 240, known as the Scaffold Law, requires owners and contractors to protect workers against falls from heights and falling objects. Under this provision, an owner or contractor is 100% liable, or “absolutely” liable, for a worker’s height-related injuries if it can be shown that a violation of Section 240 was a proximate cause of the injury. For example, if a worker falls through temporary flooring that collapsed because it was inadequately secured, that worker would be able to get compensation under New York Labor Law Section 240.

Section 241(6) requires owners and contractors to operate construction sites in a certain way and provide specific safety equipment to all workers. If these requirements are not followed, or safety equipment is not provided, an injured worker will be able to recover damages after an accident.

A property owner or contractor that is found liable may be required to pay for all of a worker’s accident-related expenses, including medical expenses, therapy and rehabilitation costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. These damages are much more comprehensive than what is available through the workers’ compensation system. For example, workers’ compensation provides only partial rather than total wage replacement.
