Long Island Construction Accident Lawyers

Helping Injured Workers Pursue Full and Fair Compensation

Construction sites are inherently dangerous. People injured in construction accidents often assume that their only recourse is to apply for workers' compensation benefits. However, if your injuries were caused by the negligence of someone other than your direct employer, you can pursue a personal injury lawsuit in addition to filing a workers' compensation claim.

The federal government, New York state and New York City all have particularly stringent laws regarding construction site accidents. At Russo & Pedranghelu, our Long Island construction accident attorneys help clients understand OSHA and labor laws and regulations that are relevant to their circumstances. This empowers our clients to make educated decisions about their cases, including whether to file third-party liability lawsuits or initiate workers' compensation claims.

Acting Quickly and Decisively After Construction Accidents

New York Labor Law 240 and other state laws are favorable to workers who suffer injuries as a result of ladder falls, scaffolding accidents and other common types of job site accidents. However, it is still important to take action quickly so that witnesses will be able to remember the sequence of events and describe the accident accurately.

In addition to interviewing potential witnesses, our lawyers consult with construction experts and engineers to determine exactly when and where negligence occurred. The information we gather allows us to build strong cases for clients who have fallen from ladders or scaffolding, suffered electrical injuries or developed occupational illnesses because of the presence of toxic substances on the job.
