Helping New York Construction Workers Who Have Suffered Power Tool And Electrical Injuries
Despite the legally required safety precautions governing power tools and electricity on a construction site, workers continue to suffer serious injuries at an alarming rate. Whether due to an equipment malfunction or negligence on the part of the general contractor or a subcontractor, construction workers who are injured on the job have the right to seek full and fair compensation for their medical care, rehabilitation and loss of income.
The injuries that occur in these cases can be life-changing and may impact the victim’s ability to ever work again. If you are suffering because of injuries sustained in an electrical or power tool accident, it is important that you seek the advice of a qualified New York City lawyer who knows the law and has the ability to protect your future.
Our attorneys obtained $2.25 million for an electrician who suffered such a severe electrical shock that he was thrown from his ladder. The fall resulted in two dislocated shoulders as well as injuries to his right knee, neck and back — all of which required multiple surgeries.
