Construction and Workplace Accident Attorneys – Westchester County, White Plains, New York
In any industry, employers have a responsibility to provide workers with safe, hazard-free work environments. Unfortunately, due to the dangerous nature of the construction industry, thousands of workers are injured and killed each year on the job. These events often place physical, psychological, and financial burdens on the injured workers and their families for years. At Worby Vecchio Edelman, LLP, our construction and workplace accident attorneys serving Westchester County, White Plains, and all of New York fight to protect the rights of injured workers, helping to ensure that they receive the full compensation they deserve.
Among the most damaging of workplace mishaps, construction accidents can be particularly severe due to the amount of dangerous equipment and hazardous material present at many job sites. Some types of cases frequently handled by our construction accident attorneys include scaffolding accidents, labor law or OSHA violations, slip-and-fall injuries, burns, broken bones, permanent back injuries, electrocutions, wounds caused by fallen objects, illnesses due to chemical exposure, and more.
In order to protect construction workers, many laws exist that require employers to conduct regular inspections of the job sites and the materials and equipment in use, as well as to provide employees with proper protective equipment such as goggles, helmets, gloves, and more. Additionally, it is the employer’s responsibility to train employees properly in the use of potentially dangerous tools and machinery. A minor oversight in any of these duties can leave construction workers at risk and can result in serious or life-threatening injuries. If you or someone you know has been injured on a building site, contact Worby Vecchio Edelman, LLP. Our experienced construction accident attorneys serving Westchester County, White Plains, and all of New York can help ensure that you receive the maximum settlement you deserve.
Labor laws and workers’ compensation benefits exist to offer protection to employees who are injured on the job. While workers’ compensation is meant to reimburse employees for medical bills and lost wages, oftentimes the amount of compensation available fails to cover the full burden suffered by an individual and his or her family. Before accepting a workers’ compensation package, injured individuals should consult our experienced workplace accident attorneys serving Westchester County, White Plains, and all of New York. Our construction accident attorneys can help recover compensation for lost wages, benefits, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
