If you have been injured performing construction, demolition or excavation work, you may be entitled to monetary compensation under the New York State Labor Law.
In essence, the New York State Labor Law requires general contractors and project owners to provide proper safety equipment to prevent falls from heights and to prevent objects from falling onto workers. If the failure to provide adequate safety equipment results in a worker’s injury, the general contractor or the owner of the project may be liable to the injured worker for monetary compensation.
The New York State Labor Law is complex and spans over 100 years of court decisions with many twists and turns along the way. For over 45 years Faraci Lange has successfully represented injured workers and their families using the New York State Labor Law to obtain just compensation for lost wages, medical expenses and the pain and suffering that always follows a serious construction, demolition or excavation site injury.

Are Labor Law Claims Available for All Construction, Demolition and Excavation Accidents?
Not all construction, demolition or excavation accidents fall within the protection of the New York State Labor Law. In many instances, the New York State Labor Law may not apply to a particular accident, but traditional negligence theories may be available to aid an injured worker. In still other situations, the injured worker’s only remedy may be to rely on New York’s Workers Compensation system. While the different legal remedies may sound confusing, Faraci Lange can guide you to determine exactly what legal remedies are available to you.
