New York Construction Accident Lawyers at HURT-911®

Most construction site accidents in New York are caused because of a violation of at least one of the numerous New York laws that exist to protect the safety of construction workers and to prevent construction workers from injury.

When a law has been violated, it is unnecessary for an injured worker to prove negligence. You are entitled to automatic 100% negligence against the construction company for causing your accident. When we are successful in proving that a law has been violated, you are also entitled to 9% interest on the money you receive.

Who Should You Use as Your Construction Accident Lawyer?

You might ask, should I use a construction accident lawyer recommended by the union or should I use an independent construction accident lawyer?

Independent Construction Accident Lawyers

We are independent construction accident lawyers. We have no relationship with any union or construction company.

Our role as your independent construction accident lawyers is to:

  1. Prove that the violation of New York law was responsible for causing your construction accident and your injury.
  2. Speed up your case and prevent delays.
  3. Prove the seriousness of your injury to maximize the money you receive (we will often use an economist and a life care plan to do this).
  4. Help you in any way we can to make your life and recovery from your injury less stressful. For instance, we can get you money now so you can pay your expenses and with catastrophic injuries, our HURT911® Injury Concierge Care can even have someone help you with daily activities.

Who Is Responsible for Your Construction Accident Injury?

The responsible party is usually the construction site owner and/or the general contractor.  These companies usually have very substantial insurance policies.  Usually, the construction site owner and/or the general contractor has violated one or more of the New York State labor laws such as Section 200, 240, and 241(6).

New York Labor Law Section 200 requires the use of reasonable care to maintain a work site.

New York Labor Law Section 240 (the Scaffolding Law) protects workers injured because of falling objects at a work site or improper use of or inadequate or missing safety equipment involving a scaffold, ladder, hoist, stay, sling, hangers, pulleys, ropes, blocks, braces, and other similar tools.

New York Labor Law Section 241(6) creates a duty to comply with all provisions of the New York State Industrial Code.

Lawyers often file a lawsuit against the construction site owner only to find a couple of years later that the insurance company attorney for the construction site owner has filed a lawsuit against another company which is now delayed your case for another year or two. This can be prevented.

Our client thought we’re the best construction accident lawyers when we settled his construction accident case with a broken thumb for $1,200,000. Our client’s thumb was almost amputated but was saved.
