Victim of a construction site accident in NYC?
If you have been the victim of a construction site accident, there are a few reasons why you need to hire a reputable attorney who is experienced in construction-related accidents. First of all, most victims of construction-related accidents are going through this process for the first time and have no idea what they are entitled to and who exactly they should hold responsible for the accident. Clients often ask us if they can sue their employer for an injury that occurred on-site. In many cases the answer is no but the labor laws of New York provide protection to injured construction workers that allows them to go beyond the limited benefits afforded to the victim through workers’ compensation.
