New York City is comprised of the five boroughs of Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Staten Island. NYC is growing rapidly with construction and development occurring at a hurried pace both in Manhattan known as New York County as well as Brooklyn, the Bronx, and other locales. With a rise in construction come the dangers to construction site laborers. Many of these dangers tend to be elevation or gravity related. Falls from a height are common injuries on construction sites. Examples include falls from ladders or scaffolds. Another common construction injury is an object which is being hoisted or secured as part of the work breaking off and falling striking a worker. There are many other types of construction accidents.
Common Construction Site Injuries
The New York Labor Law protects construction site workers and laborers by placing the legal burden on the construction site owners and general contractors who must provide equipment including ladders and scaffolds that are safe and properly placed so that the workers can perform their job functions safely. Labor Law 240 and 241(6) as well as Industrial Codes found in Title 23 protect construction workers.

This small law firm was very helpful and friendly. The car accident lawyers treat their clients very well. While my auto accident case was pending, the attorney kept in touch by phone or email and answered my questions. When it came time to go to court, the trial attorney was aggressive fighting for the most possible. Overall excellent.
