As construction accident lawyers servicing Long Island, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, and Manhattan, we have seen a variety of construction accidents cases. These have included elevator accidents, scaffolding accidents, defective machinery accidents, and crane accidents, that have often caused injuries such as spinal cord and back injuries, amputations, crushed limbs, burns, traumatic brain injuries, paraplegia and quadriplegia.
Every year, thousands of laborers are killed or seriously injured while working at construction sites. Such unfortunate incidents occur, despite the fact that many state and federal regulations, as well as industry standards, require owners, general contractors and sub-contractors to implement a wide variety of safety measures.
Although Workers’ Compensation aids employees who are injured on the job, it is usually not sufficient to fully compensate injured workers for all damages sustained as a result of their work-related accident.
Owners of property, general contractors, sub-contractors, architects, and even equipment manufacturers may be held responsible when a construction site accident occurs. In addition to Workers’ Compensation benefits, additional damages that can be recovered from third-party lawsuits include those for pain and suffering, additional wage loss benefits, additional medical benefits and loss of consortium.
Our construction accident lawyers have been handling complex construction accident cases in New York City and Long Island for years and have a wealth of knowledge about New York State Labor Law and the Industrial Code.
