  • 14. Personal Injury Lawsuit – Construction Accidents
    Each year, thousands of workers at construction and renovation sites are injured on the job by dangerous construction equipment that has inadequate safety devices or warnings, cave-ins, sink holes, collapsing excavations, collapsing structures and more.
    Under the New York Workers Compensation law, an employee is prohibited
    from suing the employer for injuries sustained in a construction accident. The
    law provides for payment of employee’s medical expenses and lost wages,
    but prevents him from making a claim for pain and suffering.
