New York Construction Accident Lawyers

Building and demolition projects, road and sidewalk repairs, and other forms of construction are constant realities throughout the New York City area. The hazards for construction workers are considerable. Passers-by and bystanders are also sometimes seriously injured when construction accidents occur.

Turn To A Legal Team Trusted By New Yorkers For More Than 40 Years

New York has some strong, long-standing laws in place to protect the safety of construction workers. Claims for workers' compensation benefits are not the only avenue of recovery and support when a general contractor, building owner or some other party has been negligent. In many cases over the past 40-plus years, our accomplished attorneys have successfully pursued third-party liability claims under the New York State Labor Law.
