Construction Site Accident Attorneys

Construction workers are injured more often than almost anybody else in our society, due to the dangerous nature of their work. Many laws and rules such as the New York Industrial Code, OSHA, and New York Labor Law Sections 240 and 241 and 200 govern the operation of construction sites and determine whether a construction worker has a valid case against a property owner or another contractor.

Certain aspects of this area of law are so convoluted that some judges don’t even understand it! Many law firms handling Workers Compensation cases don’t ever practice in this area, and never bring cases for workers hurt in construction accidents. But throughout the decades of our experience, Argyropoulos & Bender has developed the ability to analyze your case and represent you for these injuries and accidents.

Sample Settlement in this Area

In a 1997 case, a construction worker client received $787,000 after he fractured his ankle while working at a construction site. A large pipe fell because it was not properly secured on a lift and hit his ankle. He had surgery with the insertion of a plate and screws and, instead of continuing to work as a plumber, went into the medical profession as a radiology technician after the accident.
