New York construction accidents occur all too regularly. Hard working construction workers can find their work and personal lives disrupted for long stretches of time due to the carelessness of others. If you have suffered a work-related injury caused by the negligence of someone else on the job site or connected to the job site, New York law allows you to seek monetary compensation for your injuries and lost wages.

Workers injured on the job are usually entitled to workers’ compensation. In some cases, construction workers may also be able to seek third-party liability damages against another company or another company’s employee who caused the injury. Our workplace accident lawyers can help you with both types of claims.

At Powers & Santola, LLP., our Syracuse, Rochester, and Albany construction accident lawyers can help you recover monetary damages for your injuries as you work your way toward recovering the life you had prior to your injury.  Attorney Dan Santola, a Powers & Santola founding member, has extensive experience fighting for workers with catastrophic workplace injuries.
