Skilled Lawyers For All Types Of Construction Accident Claims

While workers' compensation benefits are available to injured construction workers, you may have legal claims in addition to workers' compensation. In many cases, a personal injury claim can lead to a far greater financial recovery than workers' compensation benefits. New York has special rules in place that provide additional protection to injured construction workers.

Our construction accident attorneys understand these laws like few other lawyers in the area. In addition to our history of success in trials and in settlements, we have helped to explain new law at the appellate level. We will let you know whether these special rules apply to your situation, and whether you have claims in addition to workers' compensation benefits.
