New York's labor law does not permit property owners to ignore the unsafe practices of contractors. If you are a construction worker, New York law requires both the property owner and the general contractor to provide you with a safe place to work. Yet, every year there are hundreds of very serious injuries as a result of construction site accidents such as:

  • Brain injury
  • Paralysis and other spinal injuries
  • Amputation
  • Multiple fractures
  • Crushing
  • Asphyxiation
  • Severe burns
  • Chemical reactions

Effective NEW YORK Construction Site Attorneys

It is not unusual for construction workers to work in precarious locations without the proper safety equipment. All too often, construction workers are required to perform work at dangerous elevations and are not given adequate ladders, scaffolding, or safety lines to prevent a serious accident from occurring. New York law does not permit property owners from turning a blind eye to the unsafe practices of contractors on their property. Our firm has achieved tremendous results in obtaining compensation for clients who have been injured at construction sites due to defective ladders, lack of safety equipment, unstable scaffolds and defective machinery.Our attorneys are knowledgeable in all of New York's labor laws and we have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of injured workers.

If you have been injured in a construction site accident, we want to hear from you.Tell your story to the construction site attorneys at Peña & Kahn toll free at
