Were You Injured On A Construction Site?
Construction sites are the scenes of numerous workplace accidents every year. New York has special protections in place for construction workers, and the attorneys at Vishnick McGovern Milizio LLP have extensive knowledge of the law and can help you pursue all avenues of compensation — including workers’ compensation, personal injury and disability benefits. Our firm has helped workers secure compensation for construction accident injuries such as:
- Construction site falls
- Crane and forklift accidents
- Faulty safety gear
- Heavy equipment accidents
- Injuries to carpenters
- Roofing accidents
- Scaffold collapses and ladder defects
We have helped people from all types of construction occupations — including carpenters, electricians, plumbers, heavy equipment operators and laborers of all types. We also serve undocumented workers who were injured on construction sites in New York as they are also protected under the state’s labor laws.
The Dangers Of Construction Site Falls
Falls can occur from a roof, a ladder, a scaffold or any surface above the ground. Safety precautions can prevent construction falls — but all too often these safety measures are ignored by owners, employers, general contractors, subcontractors and other third parties. Each year, too many workers are injured or killed by negligence on the site which was easily preventable.
Construction falls can result in fractures, head injuries, spinal cord injuries and, all too often, fatal injuries. Our lawyers work hard every day to help victims of falling accidents recover the resources they need to pay for medical bills, wage loss and other hardships.
You Don’t Pay Unless We Are Successful
Vishnick McGovern Milizio LLP operates on a contingency fee basis, which means you don’t pay any attorney’s fees unless we successfully secure you compensation for your injuries. Initial consultations are also free.
