Law You Can Understand

  • Be trained in a language you understand
  • Work on machines that are safe
  • Be provided required safety gear, such as gloves or a harness and lifeline for falls
  • Be protected from toxic chemicals
  • Request an OSHA inspection, and speak to the inspector
  • Report an injury or illness, and get copies of your medical records
  • See copies of the workplace injury and illness log
  • Review records of work-related injuries and illnesses
  • Get copies of test results done to find hazards in the workplace

If you were injured in any height related incident.  If you fell or were hit by something falling that was in the process of being hoisted or secured, you may be entitled to compensation.

A Focus on Results

The first step is for us to work with you and come up with a plan to get the results you need. Through our understanding of the law and your understanding of the circumstances, we will craft a path to success. 

 

Each year construction site accidents claim the health, the careers, and sometimes even the lives of tradesmen and tradeswomen in the New York City area. New York laws and regulations are designed to keep sites safe and protect the workers. Developers and construction companies are charged with that responsibility but often sacrifice the safety for profits, by failing to provide safety devices and/or failing to supervise and coordinate the various subcontractors.


Most of these accidents are avoidable. The union labor force has built our city, its schools, its hospitals, its roadways…and is entitled to have the safety rules followed. The homes we live in, the skyscrapers we work in, and the stadiums in which our favorite teams play, were constructed with their sweat and tears, and need not require the sacrifice of their blood and bones.


We have the expertise in construction methodology to offer a jury a compelling presentation of evidence. Whether your accident involved the failure of a crane, a scaffold or ladder…whether it occurred during the use of a chainfall, sandblaster, or welding torch…or whether rebar was being tied, rivets were being busted or curtain wall was being installed…our lawyers are best equipped to litigate against the owners and general contractors.


Our record in the Courtroom is second to none.  Call for a free consultation if you were hurt on a job site.
