Assisting Injured Construction Workers
Construction workers face a variety of dangers on a day-to-day basis, many of which can lead to devastating, life-altering injuries. Every year, thousands of construction workers are injured as a result of falling from an elevation or being struck by a falling object. Injuries sustained from these types of accidents are often severe and can affect the worker’s ability to earn a living and support their family.
If you or a loved one was injured in a construction accident, you have the right to seek compensation for your injuries. At Rosenthal Kooshoian & Lennon LLP, we have been assisting construction workers and their families for over 70 years. Our attorneys have the knowledge and experience to fight for justice and compensation on your behalf.
Understanding New York Construction Laws
New York state has a number of laws aimed at protecting injured workers from dangerous workplace accidents. These laws include:
- New York State Labor Law §240(1)
- New York State Labor Law §240(6)
- New York State Labor Law §200
All of these laws aim to ensure construction sites are safe for workers by placing responsibility for worker safety on the owner of a construction site or contractor. When a worker is injured as a result of one of these statutes being violated, they are entitled to be fully compensated for their injuries.
