New York City Construction Accident Attorneys
Protecting the Rights of Injured Construction Workers throughout the Five Boroughs
Everyone knows construction work is a dangerous occupation, and injuries are frequent for construction workers. If you have been hurt on the job, you deserve to be compensated for the injuries and losses you have suffered. Make sure you work with an experienced attorney who can protect your rights through the process and help you obtain the compensation you are owed.

- Roof collapses: Our lawyers have experience obtaining compensation for clients and their families involving roof collapse injuries and wrongful death claims.
- Unsafe workplace accidents: A significant percentage of workplace accidents are caused by a failure to maintain clean and safe workspaces.
- Construction vehicle accidents: Trucks, diggers, cranes, and other construction vehicles are common causes of serious injuries.
Scaffolding Law - New York Labor Law 240
One of the most difficult aspects of a construction accident claim is the complicated legal aspects involved. New York has a particularly complex legal landscape for construction accident injury cases. At Restivo & Murphy LLP, our construction accident attorneys have a wealth of experience handling cases involving New York Labor Law 240 for clients who have been injured on the job. Known as the “Scaffolding Law,” these statutes were designed to protect workers from falls and injuries from falling objects.
Call our law firm immediately if either of the following applies to your case:
- You fell from an elevated worksite, such as a ladder or scaffold, because you were not provided with the proper safety gear or the equipment malfunctioned
- You were injured by debris or equipment that fell from an elevated worksite
Unfortunately, Labor Law 240 does not provide automatic compensation for those who have been injured in the above-mentioned ways. However, when our legal team can incorporate this statute into a compensation recovery strategy, it often results in a high settlement.
