In New York State, if you worked on a construction project (other than a single- or two-family home) and were injured because something fell on you or you fell, you may deserve compensation. Because your injury was caused by gravity, you’re covered on Section 240 of New York’s Labor Laws.
No matter the types of injuries you suffered, the building owner and/or general contractor may be responsible for providing you with compensation for your injuries, medical care, any pay you missed out on while you couldn’t work and more.
In these types of construction cases, the burden is ordinarily not on you to prove fault – you just need to prove that elevation and/or gravity were the cause of your injuries. At Lachman & Gorton, we can help you with your construction injury case.
