Experienced NYC Construction Accident Lawyers
Working on construction sites is extremely dangerous. However, the majority of construction accidents can be avoided by following simple safety rules.
New York has very specific laws and safety standards that owners and contractors must adhere to that provide an important layer of protection for workers of all trades. While union workers who are injured on the job are entitled to workers’ compensation, which covers medical bills related to the accident and a percentage of lost wages, additional compensation is in order when a third party is found negligent of their legal responsibility to harbor a safe working environment.
