We are knowledgeable about the New York labor statutes that govern construction accidents and we are intimately familiar with the local courts and jurisdictions. We offer every client personal, attentive client service and a dedication to achieving cost-efficient results.

New York Construction Site Liability Defense

While most workplace accidents are covered by workers’ compensation, under sections 200, 240 and 241 of New York’s Labor Law, property owners, general contractors, subcontractors and their agents can be held strictly liable for construction site accidents taking place on their watch.

A wide range of construction site accidents can fall into this category, including:

  • Falls from heights
  • Scaffolding falls
  • Ladder falls

In every case that we handle, our attorneys will thoroughly investigate the claim and build a case that takes into account your unique circumstances and legal objectives. We will answer your questions about liability and pursue a successful resolution that protects your rights.
