New York City Construction Accidents
NEW YORK CITY CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT LAWYER
When a construction worker is injured on the job, the impact on the worker and the family can last a lifetime. Construction work is a dangerous occupation and often, workers are required to work in unsafe conditions. Construction workers regularly use scaffolds, ladders, temporary platforms or perform work in excavation trenches. When injuries do occur they are often very serious. Workers Compensation will not be enough to support your family and get you the money you deserve. You will need the advice of an experienced New York City construction accident lawyer to get you the extra money above normal Workers Compensation. That is our job and mission.
The firm of Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff has been a leader in the field of construction injury law for the past 35 years. We have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for injured construction workers by protecting their rights under the New York State Labor Law § 240, 241(6) and Rule 23 of the New York State Industrial Code.
GET THE LEGAL ADVICE YOU NEED
Time limits are often as short as 90 days. You can easily lose your rights by delaying. Do not fall into the trap of relying only on Worker’s Compensation and waiting to see how you recover.
Just because you have filed a Worker’s Compensation claim will not extend or protect your right to sue for pain and suffering. A Worker’s Compensation claim and a third-party claim are governed by separate laws in New York City and throughout the state.

LEARN WHICH CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS AND INJURIES ARE COVERED BY THE NEW YORK LABOR LAWS
Labor Law § 240 protects construction workers involved in accidents on scaffolds, ladders and work platforms in New York City. These accidents involve any injury where a worker falls. If construction work is being done we fight to have our clients covered by this law which will make the difference between winning and losing your cases.
NYS Labor Law § 241(6) is a law enacted to protect construction workers who were injured due to unsafe conditions on a job site. Many trip and fall hazards and even mechanical injuries from machinery are covered from this section. At RMFW Law, we understand how to qualify you for Labor Law Protection.
Rule 23 of the New York State Industrial Code are rules that provide guidelines that must be followed by contractors during construction of a building in New York State. Our firm has fought many times in the courts and succeeded in having our clients covered due to a violation of Rule 23.
OSHA are laws that are federal regulations governing job site safety on the construction workplace. These regulations and in ratifications are understood by our New York City construction accident lawyers.

We will build your case with the experts you need in the construction industry, and fight for the financial compensation you need and deserve.
