Construction Site Accidents

Proudly Serving Buffalo & Western New York

The New York Labor Law protects construction workers who, because of the nature of their job, are put in dangerous situations daily and construction site accidents can often result in devastating injuries. In addition to a Workers Compensation claim, if you are injured on the job you may be entitled to recover personal injury pain and suffering damages from the owner of the property, the contractor, or the supplier or manufacturer of equipment. Attorneys Brian Fitzgerald and Derek Roller have represented many plaintiffs in construction and labor related injury cases and can answer your questions about falls on a construction site, defective scaffolding, defective tools and dangerous materials or equipment, and falling materials or equipment. If you or someone you know has been injured in on the job we can help.
