Helping Union And Nonunion Construction Workers In Personal Injury For Over 75 Years
The number of construction accidents in New York City has increased in recent years, as more and more nonunion workers are entering construction. This is in part because developers and general contractors can be lax about safety regulations, which leads to accidents and injuries. Saving money should not come at the cost of the life or livelihood of a worker.
If someone negligently causes a preventable construction accident that leads to a personal injury, that individual and the company that he or she works for can be held legally accountable. Likewise, if a foreman fails to enforce federal or state safety laws among his or her workers, the foreman and the company are liable for any injuries that result.
You May Be Entitled To More Than Just Workers’ Compensation
While you may be able to receive workers’ compensation for your injury, it is also possible that a third party’s negligence led to the accident. When this occurs, you can file a personal injury lawsuit against that negligent party.
