Obtaining Benefits For Injured Construction Workers

Construction Accidents Working in the construction industry is dangerous. Workplace injuries occur frequently and have significant consequences. Injured construction workers may be left unable to work for weeks, months or years — if not indefinitely. Even a minor injury — a shoulder injury or a muscle strain — can develop into something serious.

In many such scenarios, you are entitled to Workers' Compensation benefits. Indeed, construction work is the fifth-largest industry with Workers' Compensation claims paid, according to recent reports. As such, it is important to have an attorney to guide you through the system and secure maximum restitution.

The lawyers at Terry Katz & Associates, PC, have represented injured and disabled construction workers in Workers' Compensation matters for more than 30 years. Serving throughout Long Island and New York City, our legal team has the knowledge and experience to provide aggressive, effective representation. We know how to help our clients obtain the most favorable recovery options.

Advocating For Injured Construction Workers For Three Decades

We have extensive experience representing injured construction workers caused by:

  • Slips-and-falls
  • Falls from unguarded roofs, walkways and loading docks
  • Burns from explosions and chemical exposure
  • Collapse of cranes and forklifts

We also handle cases covered by Section 240 of New York labor law. Namely, if you have fallen from a scaffold, hoist, lift or ladder while working at a construction site, you may be eligible for compensation — even if you think the fall was your fault. It is important to explore this option. The benefits you could receive under this law are separate from Workers' Compensation payments.

Likewise, it may be appropriate to file a construction Personal Injury claim to maximize your benefits. Our law firm has been handling construction injury cases since 1992 and can advise you about your rights.
