Construction sites are among the world’s most dangerous work environments, partly because of the kind of work involved. Unfortunately, many workers are hurt on construction sites not because of their own behavior, but as a result of the negligence of others.
New York labor law provides strict liability in cases involving workers injured on the job as a result of the negligence of contractors, subcontractors or other third parties. That means that in many cases those workers and their families are entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, wrongful death or other losses and damages. If you are wondering what recourse you have following a construction-site accident – and whether you can obtain compensation — our firm can provide you with guidance right now.
