Attorney Marshall Bluth has successfully handled injured workers' claims involving accidents on construction sites, demolition jobs, factories and other unsafe work areas.
Construction Accident Claims
Builders and subcontractors working on construction sites suffer some of the highest rates of serious accidents. New York Labor Law Statutes 240 and 241 were specifically written to address the dangers of construction workers who face the threat of death and serious injury in falls from heights or from falling objects. Under the law, the property owner is liable for accidents resulting in fall injuries and deaths, even when liability can be assigned to other parties such as a manufacturer or installer of defective scaffolding or power equipment. The firm will consult with some of the best construction site experts and accident investigators in the field to provide you with the best representation possible.
Fighting for Money Damages Beyond What Workers' Compensation Pays
Under New York law, all employers are required to have workers' compensation insurance. These laws exist to ensure that employees who are injured while on the job receive medical treatment and lost wages if unable to work. If you have been injured on the job, Marshall will make sure you are adequately compensated under New York workers' compensation law.
In addition to workers' comp, you may also have rights to seek money damages for your pain and suffering as well as loss of future income and other economic loss from the party responsible for causing your injury under the Labor Law. The Labor Law in New York state is designed to protect workers from the risks and hazards commonly associated with the workplace. These laws impose a duty on employers to ensure that your health and safety are protected from hazards in the workplace. Falls from heights, tripping on objects, being hit by falling objects and operating defective equipment put workers at risk of serious injuries.
Because of such risks, employers have a responsibility to prevent injury to their employees and others. This includes providing safe and properly maintained equipment, adequate personal protective equipment such as hard hats, gloves, boots and masks, and ensuring that all systems in the workplace are safe.
The firm represents injured workers in all types of construction and workplace accident injury claims, including:
- Power tool injuries, table saw accidents
- Fall injuries, ladder and scaffold falls
- Crane and forklift injuries
- Injuries from dropped equipment, materials and products
- Electrical shock, explosion and burn injuries
