Falls from Ladders and Scaffolds

New York Labor Law requires construction site owners and contractors to provide safety equipment for workers who face risks on roofs, scaffolds and ladders. If they don’t, and you are hurt, you can file a claim.

Forklift & Crane Accidents

Some of the most deadly accidents on construction sites involve accidents with forklifts and cranes. Victims or their loved ones can seek a full recovery for any harm caused by negligent forklift or crane operation.

Site Excavation & Trench Collapse

Unfortunately, fatal and life-changing accidents occur when owners and contractors fail to make mandatory inspections of trenches and excavation sites and allow workers to operate in dangerous situations. These workers and their families can hold them accountable.

Electrical & Tool Malfunction Injuries

Painful, debilitating injuries occur due to electrocutions and other injuries caused by equipment. In some cases, a site owner or contractor can be liable for providing shoddy equipment. A manufacturer of a defective tool may be liable, too.
