Injured On The Job Site? An Experienced New York Construction Accident Lawyer Can Help You Recover Compensation.

New York City is renowned for its infrastructure and skyscrapers. We can credit this to the skill and dedication of construction workers. Although workers in the construction industry have helped define the Big Apple, the fact remains they continue to face some of the most dangerous working conditions of any employment sector. If you or someone you love has been injured in an on-the-job construction accident, a New York construction accident lawyer at The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny can help.

As a former member of a laborers’ union, Managing Partner, Richard M. Kenny earned his law degree by attending night school while working construction during the day. His unique background enables our law firm to better understand the challenges injured construction workers face and has equipped our legal team with the tools needed to protect your rights.

Most Common Causes of Construction Worker Injuries

According to recent studies, construction accidents are on the rise in New York, as illustrated by a 31 percent increase from 2011 to 2012 alone. As a result, injuries on construction sites increased by 46 percent.

Data from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), reports the construction industry continually among the most dangerous industries in the United States. OSHA reports the leading causes of fatal construction accidents to include:

In addition to these common construction accidents, workers – as well as pedestrians near construction sites – frequently suffer injuries as the result of falling materials.

Compensation for injured construction workers

 How you may be entitled to monetary compensation for your damages will always depend on the circumstances involved in your case. In many situations, injured workers will have the opportunity to recover medical expenses and lost wages by filing a workers’ compensation claim. In other cases, workers – as well as injured bystanders – may have the option of pursuing a personal injury claim, particularly when it can be shown that a construction site owner or employer committed an act of negligence that caused your injury.
