Falls from Heights Accidents in New York City

Our Experienced Construction Accident Lawyers Have Recovered Over $500 Million!

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. Labor Law Section 240 covers scaffolding accidents and falls from heights. This law gives workers who have been injured the chance to file suit against the owner and general contractor. The Perecman Law Firm can explain the law, your rights, and your options for pursuing the benefits that you deserve.

In every workplace accident, we work to find all liable parties and seek appropriate compensation from them. When contractors, property owners, or their agents’ negligence leads to serious injuries, our New York City construction accident attorneys take every step within the law to hold these parties accountable. We can also help clients file for workers’ compensation benefits ― you get representation for it all when you come to our firm.
