Injured On A Construction Site? We Can Provide The Representation You Deserve
If you or a loved one is a construction worker who has suffered serious injuries after a fall on a construction site, you have the right to take action and seek compensation. At Kammholz Messina, LLP, our lawyers handle cases involving falls from:
- Elevator shafts
- Aerial lifts
We know that these accidents can be life-changing. You can be confident that we will put our core values of integrity, creativity, personal service and excellence to work for you.
The Law Is Clear
In New York, Labor Law 240(1) clearly indicates that the general contractor and the property owner have a duty to make certain that construction workers working at elevated heights are provided with proper safety equipment. This safety equipment can include harnesses, helmets and more. Furthermore, they must make certain that ladders and other equipment are appropriate for the job that a worker is being asked to do.
Fault May Not Be An Issue
Construction workers take pride in what they do. We know that many may hesitate to take action because they believe that they made a mistake that caused the fall. However, if a harness or other safety equipment was not provided, you are not considered at fault. You can still take action to get compensation so you can cover medical bills and other costs. Our construction injury attorneys are here to help you from start to finish.
