We go to work to provide for our family. We also work to help grow our employer’s business. In exchange we receive a paycheck and we expect that our employer will maintain a safe workplace. These are the fundamental elements of the workplace bargain.
New York law recognizes that fundamental bargain and our state legislators have enacted some of the strictest laws in the country when it comes to protecting the rights of the worker. The laws are particularly important when it comes to construction worksites where injuries can be caused by falling objects, improper or defective safety equipment or workers stationed on scaffoldings, ladders and other hazardous sites.
In most cases, if you are injured at work, workers compensation will be available right away to pay for your lost wages and medical expenses. But sometimes that may not be enough. If you have been seriously injured at work it also may be necessary to bring an additional lawsuit against the parties responsible for ensuring safety in the workplace.
Our law firm has worked on some of the most important construction and work place accident cases in the State of New York. We are committed to helping ensure that victims of workplace accidents obtain justice. If you have sustained a serious injury at work, you need an attorney that will fight relentlessly for you to ensure you receive justice and full financial recovery.
