Each year, thousands of workers are injured or killed at New York and New Jersey construction sites. Although construction companies are required under New York labor laws to inspect each site with safety engineers and implement a wide variety of safety measures, construction workers still face a greater risk of work-related injury or fatality than employees in any other U.S. industry. New York labor laws were enacted to protect construction workers from work site-related accidents–and it’s for this reason that our firm believes that most work site accidents are avoidable and that those not following laws to protect workers should be held accountable.
WHO CAN I SUE IF I WAS INJURED IN A CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT IN NEW YORK STATE?
