In more 70 years of legal practice, we have seen how workers are the backbone of New York City. Construction workers are responsible for building the greatest city in the world -- and we are proud to represent them when they need help after a worksite injury.
Whether your workplace injury was caused by an unavoidable accident, your employer's negligence or a third party, we can help you take steps to pursue financial compensation under the law. Our construction accident lawyers frequently assist workers who have suffered from:
- Injuries to construction workers — including crane collapses and scaffolding accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents and falling objects
- Accidents in factories and warehouses
- Injuries caused by explosions and fires
- Accidents caused by defective equipment and machinery
You Have Options. We'll Help You Evaluate Them.
If you were injured on the job, you might be eligible for workers' compensation benefits for your medical expenses, related costs and a percentage of your lost wages. However, if workers' compensation benefits are insufficient, you may have other options. New York labor laws are unique because they allow certain construction accident victims to file lawsuits in addition to collecting workers' compensation.
Pursuing The Compensation You Need
If you were injured or disabled, or became ill as a result of your job it can have serious affects on your family and livelihood. There may be medical bills and lost wages while you recover from the injury. If there is partial or permanent disability, there will be expenses for extended medical care, as well as compensation for losing your livelihood.
New York has strong labor laws protecting the rights of injured workers. Work environments and especially construction sites have safety regulations mandated by both federal and state law. These regulations are put in place to keep individuals safe while at work, particular in the case of construction accidents. However, even with these regulations in place, construction accidents in NYC can occur due to the negligence of others. Pulvers, Pulvers & Thompson, LLP can assist in the case of construction accidents and other work related accidents. Our workplace injury lawyers are here to help victims and their families in this difficult situation.
