Construction Accidents

Construction Accident Attorneys in New York

Work Injury Lawyers Since 1956

The New York Times recently reported that fatal construction accidents have grown at an alarming rate in New York City as building projects increase in number. As many as 29 recent victims were Hispanic immigrants working for small contractors in non-union jobs. Falls from hanging scaffolds have been the single greatest factor in this increase.

Top officials of the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the city’s Buildings Department said they were disturbed by the trend. Officials vowed vigorous enforcement of safety rules and unannounced inspections of construction sites. If you or a loved one has been hurt on the job in a construction accident, speak with a New York personal injury attorney from Flanzig & Flanzig, LLP — a team that combines the experience of larger firms with the personal attention of a boutique practice.

Do I Need to Call Flanzig & Flanzig, LLP?

New York has strict laws that are designed to protect injured construction workers. If you or a loved one is injured at a construction site, you need a law firm who understands the industry as well as the complicated laws developed to protect workers. Safety on the site is often overlooked by those in charge simply to keep the job moving. Under New York law, the owner or general contractor of the project can be held strictly liable for your injuries.

If you have been injured in a construction accident, you need an attorney to help you navigate the aftermath that a devastating injury can cause you and your family. The right personal injury firm can help you get the money you need for medical treatment, lost earnings, other expenses, and for the pain and suffering you have suffered as a result of someone else's negligence. We proudly serve New York City, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, and Long Island, and other surrounding areas in the Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
