Construction Accident Attorneys

Generally, a worker involved in a construction accident such as falls from a ladder or a scaffold has an absolute right to bring a personal injury claim against the owner and the general contractor of the job site, even if the owner or general contractor had nothing to do with the construction accident.

Construction workers, particularly those employed on bridges, scaffolds or ladders bear tremendous risk of injury. Because of this increased risk of construction accidents, workers who are injured on the job have special protections under Sections 240 and 241(6) of the New York State Labor Law.
