Dedicated Construction Accident Attorneys
Construction and demolition workers are entitled to a safe work environment, proper training, and properly functioning equipment. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. If you have recently been involved in a construction accident, the attorneys at Leav & Steinberg LLP are dedicated to helping you receive the damages you are due.
New York Construction Accident Lawyers
When employers, general contractors, subcontractors, and building owners neglect to create a safe working experience, they may become liable to their workers, as well as the public. Under the Labor Law Section 240 (1) any owner or contractor must provide adequate safety equipment for those workers working at any elevated area such as a scaffold, trench, pit, ladder, roof. Any failure to provide an adequate worksite that causes a worker to fall from a height may impose absolute liability under New York State law.
As a victim of workplace negligence, you should be skeptical about relinquishing any of your rights to a company in exchange for compensation. Because the nature of construction work can sometimes make it more difficult for you to return to your pre-injury status, you should consult with one of our attorneys before making a final decision. Depending on your case, there is a good chance that the court will award you with monetary damages to cover your injuries, medical expenses, loss of wages, pain, and suffering.
Do You Have a Case?
We will conduct a detailed analysis to determine whether or not your case is valid. Along with analyzing your story, we will look at your medical evaluations, injury photos, construction site photos, and any other evidence.
