New York construction accidents

Construction accidents include the following:

  • scaffolding collapse
  • electrocution
  • falls
  • refinery, factory, and mill accidents
  • crane accidents
  • explosions
  • falling debris
  • severe burns

If you have sustained injuries as a worker at a construction site, workers compensation pays only your medical expenses and lost wages. Your needs extend beyond that to pain and suffering, and other injury-related damages. Rich & Rich, P.C., an experienced New York construction accident law firm, aggressively pursues your claim for fair and adequate compensation.

New York construction law

In New York, the law is embodied in several complex statutes. Statutes that relate to construction injuries and that offer protections to scaffold, ladder, crane, and other construction workers include New York Labor Law sections 240 and 241(6) and specific provisions of The New York State Industrial Code. Injuries and deaths that result from crane accidents or falling from a height require attorneys who have extensive knowledge and experience with similar cases. Rich & Rich, P.C. has that experience and the results.
