Were You Injured While Working at a New York Construction Project?
Do I Have a Case?
New York is a hub for construction. Every year thousands of out-of-state workers come to New York from Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Canada to find work in the construction industry — and hundreds of workers suffer serious injuries on the job.
The laws protecting injured construction workers in the state of New York are completely different from those covering injured workers in other states, even surrounding states like Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Jersey.
If you were injured while working in a construction, demolition or repair job in New York, it is imperative that you talk to a New York construction accident attorney, ideally before you leave the state. Contact Powers & Santola, LLP., an upstate New York personal injury firm that focuses on handling construction accident cases for New York and out-of-state construction workers.
At Powers & Santola, LLP., we have a thorough understanding of the unique aspects of New York’s labor laws relating to injured construction workers. You may have more options for financial recovery than you — or your union or hometown lawyer — know. Call us at 518-465-5995 to find out more.

Under New York Labor Law, you can collect workers’ compensation benefits while you pursue a third-party claim so you do not need to worry about unpaid medical bills or lost wages. We will work with you to file your claim here in New York.
You do not need an attorney in your state to file your claim. We can be your sole representative. You do not need to come back to New York to file the lawsuit, but you will need to appear for a deposition and to be present for trial, if there is a trial.
Most cases settle before trial so you may only need to be here once or twice for pretrial proceedings.
