Working on a construction site comes with many inherent risks and dangers, but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve compensation if you were injured due to a negligent coworker or employer. There are regulations in place, meant to keep workers like you safe, but they’re often ignored or ineffective—as demonstrated by your injury. You don’t have to face such injustice. New York Labor Law provides for significant protection of construction workers on commercial job sites. If you’ve been injured on a construction site while working, you are protected by these laws and have a legal claim against the owner and general contractor on the job site.
