NEW YORK CITY
When walking the streets of New York City, one can’t help but notice the numerous scaffolding structures reaching up the sides of buildings. The workers who labor atop these temporary structures face numerous risks, including slips, falls, falling objects and other accidents that can result in severe, sometimes life-altering, injuries.
Our team is committed to aggressively representing you and your family and is available 24/7 to provide answers to all your questions. We charge nothing unless we recover and will come to you if you are unable to come to our office.
Our Lawyers Pursue Full Compensation For Your Medical Expenses And Lost Wages
At Munawar & Hashmat, LLP, our team of construction accident lawyers has years of experience helping injured workers secure compensation for medical bills, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and numerous other expenses that may arise from a work-related injury. We understand New York’s laws meant to protect workers, including Labor Law Section 240, which requires owners of buildings and general contractors to provide proper safety protection for all on-site works.
As your attorneys, we will put the full force of our firm behind you while pursuing workers’ compensation benefits or a personal injury claim against a negligent third party whose actions may have caused or contributed to your injuries.
Whether you were injured while working atop a suspension scaffold, mobile scaffold, baker scaffold or other structure, or were injured as a pedestrian walking near a construction site, we will use our skill and experience to fully investigate your claim and establish liability against negligent parties, including:
- The owner of the building
- The scaffolding company
- General contractors
In some cases, a claim for defective or dangerous machinery may be necessary. If a manufacturer or the owner of the scaffolding failed to acknowledge and repair existing deficiencies, you may be entitled to compensation.
By Taking Action, You Can Protect Yourself And Others From Negligent Building Owners And Contractors
After a scaffolding accident, we will help you secure the compensation you need to cover medical expenses, pursue necessary treatments and see that your family is cared for while you recover. By filing a claim, you not only help yourself, you can protect other workers from suffering a similar fate.
