Construction work is one of the most dangerous occupations, and workers face daily risks working in high places, around heavy construction equipment, toxic chemicals, and other hazards. Because of the inherent risks of construction work, construction site owners, general contractors and other parties must be diligent in providing adequate safety precautions. Failure to do so can result in serious injury and wrongful death.
At Dansker & Aspromonte, we are passionate advocates for injured construction workers in New York City. Our attorneys are always prepared to fight for our clients’ rights and will do everything they can to help you obtain maximum compensation for your construction site injury.
If you have been injured in a scaffold fall, a ladder fall, a chemical leak, explosion or any other construction accident in New York, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim against the general contractor, site owner or other third party, in addition to any workers’ compensation benefits you may be receiving.
The law in New York State protects workers on construction sites. In many cases, the Labor Law places strict liability on the general contractor and site owner. That means that construction project owners, landlords, general contractors and their agents are considered absolutely at fault for construction accidents caused by safety violations.
