Recovering Damages For Construction Site Injuries

Construction sites are inherently dangerous work environments. High scaffolding and dangerous equipment create an atmosphere where there is great potential for falls, crush injuries and other serious harm. In New York City and the surrounding areas, ongoing construction is a fact of life, presenting constant opportunities for injury. If you have suffered a work injury on a construction site, you need a lawyer who can help you get the care and recover the compensation you need.

At the law office of Goldberg Sager & Associates in Brooklyn, we provide full support while advocating aggressively for our injured clients and their families. If you or someone you love is injured in a construction accident, talk to our firm today. We can help.

Scaffolding Accidents And Safety Laws

New York has special laws governing work injuries that take place on construction sites. Labor Law sections 240 and 241 are known as the "safe place to work" or "scaffold" laws. They state that if a construction worker suffers a scaffolding injury or an injury due to a falling object on the site, the contractor is responsible for the damages.

We handle third-party actions against outside contractors or subcontractors and their agents as well as other parties involved in the construction site who may be at fault for the accident. Our attorneys can perform a thorough investigation into the facts of your case to identify the liable party or parties and exhaust all legal options available to reach a settlement or verdict for you. We understand you may have the following worries and concerns:

  • Where will I get the money needed to support my family?
  • How will I get the medical care I need?
  • Can I obtain reimbursement for pain and suffering?
  • Is this just a workers' comp case?
  • How long will it take to finish the lawsuit?

We can answer these and other questions, deal with insurance issues and take every step necessary to help you rebuild your life after your accident. Although we attempt to settle cases without litigation, our skilled trial lawyers will advocate relentlessly on your behalf in court, if necessary.
