Man on floor from construction injury

Many hard-working people doing construction and renovation work are injured while on the job. In many situations, the worker is covered under Worker’s Compensation. However, there are many situations where the injured worker is entitled to bring a direct lawsuit against the owner and general contractor for pain and suffering under Labor Law § 200, § 240, or § 241. If you have been involved in a construction accident in New York, do not hesitate to call our personal injury lawyers.
