For the workers and tradesmen who spend their days on construction sites, it’s no secret that they can be dangerous places. To counter frequently unsafe working conditions, practices, and procedures, there are laws and regulations in place that should protect you from injury.
Too often, though, an accident happens when regulations aren’t followed, sites aren’t held to the highest safety standards, or employees are asked to place themselves in dangerous situations. No matter how careful or safe a given worker is, others may not approach their responsibilities with the same care. Maxwell Murphy’s attorneys are here to advocate for those workers, and are proud of our long history of representing construction workers and supporting the union building trades.
Workers injured on a construction site may have a number of options for financial compensation, including:
- New York State Workers’ Compensation
- The Workers’ Compensation Act
- Social Security Disability Insurance
- Union benefits
- Third party lawsuits
