Exceptional Legal Representation After A Construction Accident
Despite widespread state and federal legislative efforts – such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations, among many other laws – to keep work sites safe, building and construction site accidents frequently result in grievous injuries such as:
- Head trauma
- Back and neck injuries
- Spinal trauma
- Severe burns
- Loss of limbs or use of limbs
- Vision impairment
- Hearing loss
- Organ failure
- Long-term disease
These injuries can keep you from working. Your need to make ends meet can cause you to go back to work too soon, and cause permanent damage to your injuries. Instead of risking your health and your future, let a lawyer fight for you.
At Kaston & Aberle, LLP, we battle for the fair and full compensation our clients deserve for their construction site injuries. Our in-depth knowledge of New York labor laws has allowed us to secure the money our clients need to get on with their lives through settlements, judgments and verdicts worth millions of dollars. While we cannot guarantee the outcome of your claim, we are prepared to use our experience to champion the maximum results for your injuries.
Making The Law Fight For You
Our decades of legal experience have given us valuable knowledge of the laws that can benefit your injury claim. For example, some laws grant employees specific protections, such as:
- Section 200 – Requires that employers provide “reasonable and adequate” protection to their employees
- Section 240 – Requires proper protection for tools and devices that are 20 feet or high above the ground
- Section 241 – Requires specific safety measures for floor and elevator requirements during construction and deconstruction
There are many other laws in place to protect you. When we can prove that your employer violated labor laws that led to your injury, we are more likely to secure the compensation you deserve.
