Construction Accidents

Protecting The Interests Of Construction Workers In Job Site Accidents

New York City construction workers constantly encounter dangerous hazards — placing themselves in harm's way every time they step onto a job site. General contractors have a responsibility to ensure worker safety at all times. When that responsibility goes unfulfilled, it places workers at significant risk, and the potential for severe injuries is extremely high.

In cases where negligent conduct results in an accident that leads to serious injuries, construction workers are entitled to seek full and fair compensation for their medical care, loss of income and other relevant considerations. Every construction worker — whether union, non-union or even an undocumented immigrant — has the right to be compensated in the event of a construction site injury.

Strong Representation In All New York City Construction Accidents

The lawyers at Edelman & Edelman, P.C., have successfully represented workers in a wide array of construction accident claims. Our founder, Martin Edelman, is widely regarded as one of the preeminent construction injury litigation attorneys in the state. He has been recognized throughout his nearly 40-year career for his superior medical knowledge of construction injuries and his ability to secure outstanding results in a variety of cases.

We have experience resolving all types of construction site injury claims, including:

  • Ladder and scaffolding falls
  • Crane accidents
  • Aerial lift accidents
  • Failure to provide vertical passage
  • Falls from heights
  • Falling objects
  • Holes and trenches
  • Power tools and electrical injuries

Representation For Undocumented Workers

Undocumented construction workers may be among the most vulnerable workers in New York. They do not enjoy the protections that union members receive, and they are often lied to about their rights as undocumented workers. The truth is that all construction workers — citizens and noncitizens alike — have the right to be compensated when they are injured due to another party's negligence. We have obtained outstanding results for workers from Mexico, Venezuela, Poland, Pakistan and other locations.
