It is no secret that construction work is dangerous, and workers are exposed to a higher degree of injury than other professions. If there is any failure on the part of the general contractor, equipment manufacturer or property owner, a serious accident can result. In many states in the U.S., workers who are injured may not have any legal options available beyond workers compensation benefits. In NY however, further protection is provided to construction workers via certain labor law statutes. This allows an injured worker to pursue a claim against general contractors and/or property owners. Speak to our legal team to discuss your legal options.
