Construction Accident Attorney New York, NY

In the New York metropolitan area, construction, renovation, and demolition of apartment buildings, office buildings, retail establishments, homes, and other buildings go on every day. There are many hazards on a job site and injuries sustained on a construction site can be devastating.

Every year thousands of workers are injured or killed on the job. Workers and tradesmen who are the backbone of this country are routinely placed in harm’s way due to unsafe or hazardous work site conditions. Hardworking men and women are needlessly exposed to hazardous conditions that result in injury and sometimes death. Often, owners and contractors prioritize economic considerations and project deadlines over maintaining a safe job site.

When this happens, good people get hurt through no fault of their own. The law permits workers to recover monetary damages for on-the-job injuries when owners, contractors, and subcontractors don’t meet their obligations or follow safety rules. For example, the law demands that construction sites are maintained according to specific safety standards, regular inspections are conducted, safety gear and devices are provided and equipment is kept in good working order. These types of safety violations can result in catastrophic injuries.

Blitz Law Group has successfully represented clients injured in a wide range of serious construction accidents including:

  • Ladder and scaffolding accidents
  • Falling objects
  • Accidents caused by construction debris and defects
  • Crane accidents, forklift accidents, and motor vehicle accidents
  • Trench collapses
  • Worksite accidents

If you have been injured at a construction site you may be entitled to significant compensation in excess of any worker’s compensation benefits. BLG has shown its leadership in the litigation and trial of these cases through its successful track record in obtaining large monetary awards for workers who have been injured at work sites.
