Construction Site Accidents
We Have Been Protecting the Rights of Injured Workers for More Than 30 Years
At the Marcowitz Law Firm, our team takes the rights and safety of construction workers very seriously. We know that every time you step onto a jobsite the risk of being injured is high. If you or someone you know has been hurt on the job, they may be eligible for significant compensation.
Contractors, owners, and their agents have a responsibility to furnish or erect safe equipment for workers involved not just with building or erecting a structure, but also in excavation, demolition, repair, alterations, painting, or cleaning. The activities covered even include the lighting of the worksite and the guarding of the site and equipment.
In New York, the Labor Law Section 240, also known as the “Scaffold Law,” specifically refers to safety precautions meant to prevent workers from falling while working on scaffolding, along with preventing objects from falling from such equipment. This law covers not only scaffolding but other staging equipment such as:
If you are hurt in a fall at work from scaffolding or during some other type of work at a construction site we want to hear about it. You may be eligible for compensation for lost wages and medical expenses and more.
At the Marcowitz Law Firm, we can help determine if your individual situation falls within the scope of the Labor Laws in your state. We also can assess who can be held liable financially for your injuries and gather any documentation and evidence needed to support your claim.
