Construction Accidents

Construction Accidents Are Governed By Special Laws That Favor Injured Workers

The average person (such as a member of a jury) may not realize how dangerous construction sites are. At The Gucciardo Law Firm, we do understand the hazards that construction workers face on a daily basis and how devastating a construction accident can be when it affects your health and ability to earn a living. We will help you maximize your claims if you were injured because of unsafe apparatus or working conditions at a job site.

We represent construction workers of New York City and Long Island who have been injured on the job. Our attorneys leverage your special rights under New York labor law to hold property owners and other parties responsible for your maximum compensation. If you were injured in any type of construction-related accident, our lawyers are available 24 hours a day to address your case.

Leveraging Your Rights In Construction Injury Claims

We welcome all construction accident cases, including those that are covered by Section 240 of the Labor Law for the added risks of working at elevation, whether scaffold, ladder or other height. We can explain your Labor Law 240 rights and possible claims for any construction site accident, including:

  • Scaffolding and ladder accidents
  • Falls from heights or falling objects
  • Crane and heavy equipment accidents
  • Injuries from tools and machinery
  • Vehicle accidents on or between job sites
  • Electrical shock or chemical burns
  • Explosions or fires
  • Slip-and-falls and tripping hazards

We help clients secure their entitled workers’ compensation benefits and explore lawsuits against third parties for additional damages (since you cannot sue your employer directly). Our lawyers prepare for trial and the insurance companies and defense attorneys know that we will follow through. They consider our track record of verdicts and settlements when deciding whether to honor our compensation demands or take their chances in court.


“Settling a case does not mean settling for less. We are committed to obtaining the best results for our clients and we are prepared and well qualified to proceed to trial for every client who retains our firm.” ∼ Charles Gucciardo
