New York Construction Accidents By Michael Joseph on January 22, 2010

As a New York construction accident lawyer, I have represented workers injured in construction accidents all over New York City including the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens. The laws which protect New York construction workers were enacted by the New York legislature to place the responsibility for construction accidents on the general contractor and owner of the New York construction site.

Ironically, with the current economy dampening the amount of construction in New York City and White Plains the conditions which predispose construction sites to construction accidents have increased because owners and contractors are cutting corners to save money. Unfortunately when these construction project managers and owners cut costs, construction site safety is often the first thing cut. This often results in construction injuries caused by violations of New York’s labor laws.

As a New York City construction lawyer, I have seen countless preventable injuries on construction sites, which have caused serious personal injuries and even fatalities. If you were injured on a construction site in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx or Staten Island, then New York’s labor laws apply and you need to consult with an experienced New York construction accident lawyer.
