Advocacy for Injured Construction Workers Hurt by Defective Hoisting Devices, Pulley Systems, Block and Tackle, Harnesses and Safety Lines
Any scaffold collapse, critical failure of a hoisting device or other safety equipment failure is apt to cause serious injury or even a construction site fatality. While workers' compensation benefits are available to address medical expenses and lost earnings, more substantial recoveries are sometimes available through a third-party personal injury lawsuit, particularly one that properly cites and proves violations of New York Labor Law.
Applying decades of experience analyzing many types of construction site accidents and evaluating construction worker injuries, our legal team is adept at reconstructing accidents and refuting common defenses used by building owners and general contractors. Such defenses often include claims that equipment was used improperly and/or that the worker caused his own injuries.
