Accidents On Construction Sites
Construction accidents do not always involve heavy machinery or power tools. There are many ways that you can suffer an injury at a construction site, and any of them may allow you to obtain compensation if the accident was the result of someone else’s negligence.
The attorneys of Godosky & Gentile protect the interests of injured construction workers who have been harmed by the negligence of contractors, property owners, co-workers and all others who are liable parties. We help these injured workers exercise all of the protections afforded to them under New York’s Industrial Code, and work tirelessly to help them obtain the compensation they need to facilitate as full a recovery as possible.
