NY Construction Workers Entitled to Compensation for Injury Caused by Negligence

06/19/2012 // NY, NY, USA // New York Injury Accident Lawyer // Jonathan C. Reiter // (press release)

Jonathan Reiter, a New York construction accident lawyer, handles claims for New York construction workers who have suffered on-the-job injuries. While construction workers have the right to safe working conditions, proper training, and functional equipment, some owners and general contractors fail to maintain safe work environments and to implement proper safety regulations. Such failures lead to workplace injuries.

If a construction worker is physically injured or killed while working on a construction job due to another party’s negligence, the negligent party may be held legally liable for the injured worker’s damages. An injured worker may be legally entitled to seek damages from a negligent party for pain, suffering, medical costs, rehabilitation, psychological distress, lost wages, and certain other expenses. A lawyer can help the injured construction worker pursue a legal claim for these damages so that the worker can focus on recovering from the injuries.

Workplace injuries range from minor to severe. Common injuries include:

Broken or fractured bones;

Burn injuries, including electrical burns;


Respiratory problems;

Back injuries;

Chemical exposure;

Nerve damage;

Partial or total paralysis;

Hearing loss;

Chronic pain;

Head, neck, and spinal cord injuries, including concussions; and


Construction workers who have suffered one or more of the listed injuries may be entitled to compensation if another party’s negligence caused the injury.
