There are few occupations more dangerous than construction. Between large and hazardous equipment, limited lines of sight, multiple contractors all working at the same site, and other factors, it is sometimes a wonder that more workers aren’t injured.
Reflecting the dangers inherent in construction work, New York labor law has numerous provisions that allow injured construction workers to recover compensation for their damages and losses. However, actually obtaining full and fair settlements or jury awards requires the help of an attorney who knows how to hold building owners, general contractors and others responsible for injuries to workers hurt on the job.
When you sustain an injury at a construction site in Manhattan or Long Island, to whom can you turn to help you navigate the confusion and frustration of dealing with building owners, construction site contractors, insurance companies, and government investigators? None of them is truly looking out for you, your well-being, or ensuring that you receive the full compensation needed to cover your medical bills, rehabilitation bills, and lost wages.
Fortunately for you, the Labor Law team at Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein, LLP, Attorneys at Law, has a combined 75+ years of experience in bringing justice and compensation to these injured workers. There may often be options for additional compensation when the owners or contractors at a worksite have neglected to provide satisfactory safely procedures or facilities at the site. We are often able to use all relevant laws to obtain compensation for you. We are determined advocates and seek the maximum compensation possible for you by preparing every case for trial. We even employ highly regarded construction and medical experts as well as other specialists so that we fully understand both how the accident occurred and the impact of the injury or death on your life and future.
