Almost Any Worker Can File a Personal Injury Claim After an On-the-Job Injury
If you have suffered a serious injury as a result of a construction accident or any other type of workplace accident, you need a premier trial law firm to protect you and make sure you receive full compensation. Many workers who are hurt on the job do not realize that they may be entitled to bring a personal injury action and that they are protected by the labor laws of New York. These laws apply to almost all construction trades, including repair, renovation, demolition, cleaning, painting, electrical, carpentry and masonry. State and federal law protect employees in all other types of industries as well.
