Construction workers face some of the most dangerous conditions of any industry in the United States. New York's Labor Laws 240 and 241 outline specific safety requirements and other regulations designed to ensure the safety of every worker on the job site. Owners, general contractors and subcontractors have a responsibility to comply with these rules. Failure to do so places everyone at risk.
If you have been injured while working on a construction site, you may have grounds to seek additional damages beyond any benefits you may be entitled to receive under workers' compensation. These are complex cases that require the attention of a qualified personal injury lawyer. At The North Shore Injury Lawyer, attorney Mark T. Freeley represents construction accident victims throughout Nassau County, Suffolk County as well as all of Long Island.
