New York Construction Accident Lawyers
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, nonunion 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 New York construction accident 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 knowledge of medicine and construction injuries and his ability to secure outstanding results in a variety of cases.
Our New York construction accident lawyers have experience resolving all types of construction site injury claims, including those related to:
- Injuries caused by ladder and scaffolding falls, including falls linked to violations of New York’s Scaffolding Law
- Injuries caused by crane accidents
- Injuries caused by aerial lift accidents
- Injuries caused by the failure to provide vertical passage
- Injuries caused by falls from heights
- Injuries caused by falling objects, debris and construction materials
- Injuries caused by falls into holes and trench collapses
- Injuries caused by 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.
