Brooklyn Construction Accident Lawyers

 The Perecman Firm has recovered more than 50 verdicts & settlements of a million dollars or more for our clients in the last five years alone.

Brooklyn Has Thousands Of Active Construction Projects

New York City is in the midst of one of the biggest construction booms in history, if not the biggest. The city set a new record in 2017 when 168,233 construction permits were issued, breaking the decade-old record of 125,579 set in 2007. Brooklyn had more than $1 billion worth of projects from 2015 through 2017, including a $268.8 million dollar expansion of a residential building. According to the New York Building Congress, Brooklyn made up more than 26 percent of all construction activity in the city in 2017, and was the only borough where the majority of projects were focused on residential structures and renovations. These renovations are much needed improvements to the city, but every worksite needs to adhere to the safety standards set by state and federal laws. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case, and far too often these unsafe worksites result in serious injuries and even deaths.

Were You Injured While Working?

There are a number of legal options potentially available if you were injured while working on a construction site. Depending on your situation, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the general contractor, site owner, or any other contractor that caused your accident. Workers in New York have some specific protections in place they can rely on, including Labor Laws 200, 240, and 241(6) which can be utilized to secure additional damages when workers’ compensation benefits don’t cover your injuries. Taking additional legal action is only possible under certain circumstances, so be sure to speak with your lawyer about whether or not your case falls under the protections afforded by New York Labor Laws.
