Construction Accident Attorneys in Albany
New York Work Injury Lawyers
Albany Construction Accident Attorney Since 1950
Due to the hazardous nature of falling debris and falls from dangerous heights, New York laws are very protective of construction workers who are injured from these dangers. Often, employers face "strict liability" in fall-related accidents. When strict liability applies, the primary question is not if the injured worker is owed compensation. It is merely a question of how much.
If you have been injured in a construction site-related scaffolding, elevator or ladder accident in New York, or have been hit by falling debris, contact the Albany law firm of Friedman, Hirschen & Miller, LLP. We are highly knowledgeable regarding the Labor Law of the State of New York and have 75 years of experience in construction injury law.
A Recent Case Illustrates Our Effectiveness in Handling Scaffold and Falling Accident Cases
Our client was working on a roof in New York state when he fell, sustaining serious injuries. Using our in-depth knowledge of New York construction injury and fall-from-heights laws, we successfully moved for summary judgment. The summary judgment established that our client was owed compensation without the need for a trial.
The question remains; how much compensation is our client owed? We are now in the process of preparing to negotiate or litigate for our client's maximum compensation. For more information, and to schedule a no-charge consultation, please contact our firm.
We accept cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning that we only collect an attorney's fee if we recover damages for you. We also offer free consultations, so there is nothing to lose by talking with an experienced lawyer about your accident. There is a lot to lose by doing nothing.
