New York Personal Injury Law Firm Serving New York City, Long Island, Westchester, and Rockland
Men and women in the construction industry are legally entitled to a workplace free of hazards and accidents under the Occupational Safety and Health Act. Unfortunately, construction-related accidents still run high.
While the law does not allow workers to sue their employers if they are eligible to collect workers’ compensation benefits, injured construction workers are likely to have a claim against one of the multiple contractors involved in a typical construction project.
If you or a loved one have been injured on-the-job at a construction site, you may be entitled to bring a claim or lawsuit to recover additional and significant compensation for your pain and suffering and lost wages, in addition to any workers’ compensation benefits you receive. If your accident was caused by a negligent third party (not your employer or a fellow employee), the attorneys at NHG Law Group can represent you in bringing a third-party personal injury claim and lawsuit.
The firm’s workplace injury attorneys handle a wide range of workplace accident claims, including:
- Construction site accidents
- Scaffolding accidents and falls from heights
- Falls from roofs
- Falls from ladders
- Injuries caused by a failure to provide safety devices
- Injuries as the result of falling objects
Whether you have been injured or you are the family member of someone who was killed in a construction accident, you have several options when it comes to recovering compensation or benefits. Allow the experienced attorneys at the law firm of The NHG Law Group, P.C. to advise you on your best course of action to ensure your legal rights are protected.
