What should I know if I have been injured in a construction accident?

Video Description

It's important to know that if you've been in a construction accident that you have unique rights. The law in New York gives special protection to construction workers that are injured on the job. It gives you certain protections to make sure that the work environment is safe for you and creates obligations on the general contractor, the owner, and other entities to make sure that you're kept safe when you're on the job. And this is different from other cases, like a car accident case or someone that trips and falls outside. They don't have the protections that a construction worker has.

 

So, if you've been injured in a construction accident, it's important to consult with an attorney to talk about the rights that you have and make sure that your rights are protected.
