Workplace Injury Attorneys Taking On a Broad Range of Injury ClaimsConstruction accidents are all too common. Even when construction workers take all available precautions, construction work is dangerous. These injuries are devastating, both to an injured worker and to his or her family. If you have been injured in a construction accident, it may be a long time until you can work again. In fact, you may never be able to perform the same work you did prior to your accident. If you have been injured in a construction accident, it is critical that you work with a lawyer who can help you recover full damages.We are the law firm of Dankner Milstein, P.C. Our New York construction accident lawyers have helped many working men and women rebuild their lives after a serious workplace accident. Our law firm focuses exclusively on personal injury claims arising out of construction accidents. We do not handle workers’ compensation claims. We can, however, refer you to a law firm that focuses on workers’ compensation claims if necessary. If you already have a workers’ compensation lawyer, we can work with your workers’ compensation lawyer to maximize your overall compensation after a workplace injury.
We take on all types of personal injury claims involving construction accidents, including:
- Falling objects
- Scaffold accidents
- Crane accidents
New York law has significant protections in place to help injured workers recover full compensation for their injuries. Perhaps the most notable law is Labor Law Section 240. This law requires owners and contractors to provide properly functioning safety equipment to workers working from heights. If the equipment is faulty or inadequate, or if the safety equipment is not provided, owners or contractors are at fault. Our law firm will fully investigate the causes of your accident to determine your right to compensation. Over our firm’s history, we have recovered more than 150 verdicts and settlements of $1 million or more, and total compensation of more than half a billion dollars for our clients. We have the experience and record of success people look for when seeking a construction accident law firm.
