Fighting For Damages After Devastating Injuries
The construction industry is one of the most dangerous in the United States. 20.5 percent of all workers killed on the job in 2014 were in the construction industry — that is, one in five worker deaths in 2014 were construction workers. A substantial number of those killed were Latino. Often those injured but not killed in a construction site accident suffer catastrophic injuries, rendering them unable to provide for themselves or their families.
At Kelly & Rubin, LLP, we are experts in our ability to maximize the financial compensation that an injured construction worker and their family is due. We understand your rights and utilize our more than 30 years of experience to fight for what you deserve after an accident.
The Law Protects Injured Undocumented Immigrants
Often, those 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 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.
Leveraging New York Labor Laws To Pursue What You Deserve
Accidents are a frequent concern on construction sites, due to many hazardous conditions and materials surrounding workers and others on or near the site. With over 30 years of experience, our lawyers assist injury victims after many types of accidents, including those caused by:
- Falling or defective scaffolding
- Falling debris or other materials
- Defective or dangerous machinery or equipment
- Incidents involving electrocutions, explosions or more
- Falls from significant heights
Fortunately, 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 capable of protecting workers at a construction site are the general contractors and owners of the property, not the workers themselves.
