Our Experienced Construction Accident Lawyers Have Recovered Over Half a Billion Dollars!
Construction sites are known to be some of the most dangerous workplaces. As a construction worker, your job likely requires you to work on ladders, scaffolds, roofs, and other structures that put you high above the ground. These elevated work areas can expose workers to a higher risk of falls from heights, which can lead to serious injuries and disabilities.
From broken bones and fractures to devastating brain injuries and other catastrophic injuries, falls from heights can result in crippling medical bills and lost wages ― not to mention pain and suffering for the worker and their family alike.

Understanding Labor Law Section 240
After any construction accident, it is important for victims to know their rights and what compensation they may be entitled to under the law.

The Perecman Law Firm can explain the law, your rights, and your options for pursuing the benefits that you deserve.
