Beyond Workers' Compensation

You are covered by New York workers' compensation whenever you are injured on the job, regardless of who was at fault. However, workers' compensation may not be your sole source of recovery.

If you are injured by equipment that is defective in design or manufacture, or did not contain adequate warnings, the manufacturer may be liable. This area of law is known as product liability. Our attorneys handle personal injury and wrongful death cases involving all type of construction tools and equipment, including:

  • Ladders and lifts
  • Scaffolding
  • Nailers and other power tools
  • Saws
  • Conveyors
  • Cranes and other heavy equipment
  • Defective safety harnesses

If you have been injured in a construction accident, it's important to save the equipment and contact a lawyer as soon as possible. Even if you were using the equipment in way that was not intended by the manufacturer, the manufacturer may be liable if your use was foreseeable.
