Brooklyn Construction Accidents Lawyer
Hurt in a New York or New Jersey Construction Accident?
Union laborers and other construction workers face dangers every day in the workplace. To avoid serious or fatal accidents, construction sites must comply with strict guidelines. Failure to do so is negligence. However, even when safety regulations are complied with, accidents may still arise resulting in serious injuries or wrongful death. Our Brooklyn construction accident lawyers at the Law Offices of David J. Hernandez & Associates provide experienced legal representation to injured workers and families who have lost loved ones in a construction accident.
Our firm works to obtain full compensation for our clients. We have comprehensive knowledge of New York labor laws and other regulations which apply to construction sites and construction injuries.
Experienced with all aspects of construction site accidents, such as:
- Construction equipment accidents: Our attorneys can represent contractors, machine operators, and bystanders involved in forklift accidents, crane accidents, and other heavy equipment accidents which occur on construction sites.
- Elevation accidents: We can represent injured workers who have sustained head injuries or spinal
cord injuries as a result of scaffolding accidents, falls from roofs, or falls from ladders. We represent families of workers who have died in these accidents.
- Debris accidents: We advocate for injured clients or families of accident victims hit by falling debris, such as falling beams from cranes or injured workers who trip and fall on debris at the construction site.
New York’s Safe Place to Work Laws
In New York, every worker including laborers and construction workers should have an expectation that their workplace is safe. New York’s legislature enacted labor laws which protect construction workers who are injured in a fall or by falling debris. If a worker is injured in this manner, the owner and the contractor are held liable for the injuries, regardless of safety violation, negligence, or fault.
Our attorneys at the Law Offices of David J. Hernandez Associates represent workers and families involved in these labor law cases and other labor and construction cases. Our injury lawyers investigate all aspects of these cases for additional liability to help recover full compensation for our clients and their families.
