NYC Defective Tool Injury Lawyer
Manhattan Unsafe Equipment Accident Attorney
On construction sites and a wide range of other job locations all throughout the five boroughs of New York City, workers depend on all their equipment to be properly designed and maintained. For a worker in any industrial setting or maintenance job, an equipment failure or tool defect can be work-ending, life-changing or even fatal.
Depending on many circumstances surrounding your own or a loved one’s severe injury, workers’ compensation insurance may not be your only viable source of financial support. Work injury cases that justify claims against building owners and general contractors under New York labor law, as well as against negligent subcontractors, are a significant focus for our attorneys and staff at the Law Offices of Nussin S. Fogel.
