Construction Accidents

The construction industry is one of the most dangerous in the United States. 20.5% of all workers killed on the job in 2014 were in construction-that is, one in five worker deaths in 2014 were construction workers. A substantial number of those killed were Latino. Often times those injured but not killed in a construction site accident suffer catastrophic injuries, rendering them unable to provide for themselves or their families.

Often times those who are injured at a construction site are undocumented immigrants. It is very important for these potential clients to understand that the law protects them in the same way that United States citizens and documented immigrants are protected.

There is absolutely no reason to fear commencing a lawsuit due to the undocumented status of a construction worker injured on a job site.

In addition, the labor laws in place in New York State are some of the most worker-friendly statutes on the books in America. This is so because the law recognizes that the people best able to protect workers at a construction site are the general contractors and owners of the property, not the workers themselves.
