Construction work can be extremely dangerous, especially when the site owner, the contractor, the subcontractors, equipment manufacturers, and others are more focused on profits than safety. Construction accidents kill or seriously injure thousands of workers every year. Many injured workers understand their rights to workers’ compensation or social security disability benefits, and we can refer you to work with attorneys who can help you obtain those benefits. However, those benefits are often inadequate for seriously injured workers or the families of wrongful death victims. Our construction accident lawyers will make sure you understand all of your rights.
New York’s Labor Law provides injured workers with rights and remedies beyond workers’ compensation. Injured workers may sue the party that owns a worksite and the general contractor regardless of whether the worker is employed by another contractor or is an independent contractor. We have obtained many multi-million dollar awards on behalf of injured construction workers, and are ready to fight to hold negligent owners and contractors responsible.
Every lawyer at Bonina & Bonina, P.C. is trained to conduct thorough investigations of construction accidents. General contractors and subcontractors are required to provide reasonably safe construction sites, to warn workers of dangers and hazards at the site, to coordinate job safety, and to supervise the job site.
A Record of Success
Because of our decades of experience with construction accidents, our trial attorneys have been repeatedly successful in holding general contractors and owners liable for violations of laws enacted to protect workers at construction sites.
Catastrophic injuries require significant financial resources for the victim’s recovery. In many cases, when full recovery is not possible, ongoing care and medical treatment are necessary. We are, in every case, on the side of injured people and the families of wrongful death victims.
