Under Labor Law 200, it is the responsibility of owners and contractors to maintain a safe environment at construction sites in order to protect workers from potential hazards. If an employee sustains injuries due to an unsafe construction site, they have the right to hold contractors or site owners liable for their damages.


Referred to as the Scaffold Law, Labor Law 240 establishes stringent regulations for workers performing tasks at elevated heights, such as working on tall structures, ladders, or scaffolds. If a worker is not adequately protected and experiences an accident, they can pursue compensation from third parties who provided safety devices or were responsible for supervising the project.


Labor Law 241 outlines specific safety codes and equipment requirements for activities like demolition, excavation, and other construction work. If these safety measures are absent or insufficient, and a worker sustains injuries, they have the option to file a lawsuit against the involved contractors.

New York labor laws offer a legal basis for filing claims in construction accidents caused by negligence, allowing individuals to seek compensation for their injuries and strive for improved safety conditions on construction sites.


In New York, liability for construction accidents can extend to various parties. This includes your employer or third parties such as subcontractors or manufacturers of faulty or defective products.

Furthermore, machinery or property owners who have failed to implement necessary safety measures at the construction site may also be held liable for the accidents that occur.

If you have suffered injuries in a construction accident, it is crucial to understand your rights and explore the potential liability of various parties involved. Seek the guidance of experienced construction accident attorneys who can navigate the complexities of New York laws and help you pursue the compensation you deserve.


Medical Expenses

When you sustain an injury on the job, it is possible to file a claim against the responsible person or company to hold them accountable for your hospital bills and any expenses related to your ongoing medical treatment.

Pain And Suffering

Physical injuries resulting from a construction accident can have a significant impact on your overall well-being, both physically and emotionally. To seek compensation for the emotional distress and diminished quality of life you experience, you can file a claim against the party responsible for the accident.

Lost Income

Following a construction accident, you may find yourself unable to work for a specific period or an indefinite duration due to your injuries. In such cases, your attorneys can file a claim to pursue compensation that covers the wages you have lost during your recovery period.

Wrongful Death

If your loved one tragically loses their life in a construction accident, your family has the right to pursue compensation for various damages. This may include end-of-life expenses, compensation for pain and suffering, lost income, lost inheritance, and more.

Property Damage

If your personal property sustains damage as a result of the construction accident, the responsible party may be held liable for the damages incurred.

Punitive Damages

In certain cases where the at-fault party's behavior exhibited gross negligence, it may be possible to seek further compensation in the form of punitive damages.


Workers' compensation is a government-mandated insurance program funded by employers. Its purpose is to provide medical and wage benefits to employees who sustain job-related injuries or illnesses.

If you experience an injury in a construction accident, you are entitled to receive workers' compensation from your employer. However, it's important to note that workers' compensation generally prevents you from suing your employer.

In New York, workers' compensation typically covers your medical expenses and provides you with two-thirds of your average weekly wage. Additionally, it may include reimbursement for travel expenses to and from healthcare appointments.

There are certain types of injuries that are typically not covered under workers' compensation. These may include:

  • Injuries sustained while under the influence of alcohol or drugs while performing job duties.

  • Injuries incurred in violation of company rules and regulations.

  • Injuries that occur during your commute to or from your job location.

  • Emotional and psychiatric injuries.

  • Self-inflicted injuries.

To ensure your eligibility for workers' compensation and understand the specific details of your case, it is advisable to consult with experienced construction accident attorneys.

At Dalbir Singh & Associates, P.C, we thoroughly examine your case and help you identify potential avenues for filing additional claims beyond workers' compensation.

If you suffer a construction accident on the job in New York, workers' compensation will provide benefits through your employer, and suing your employer is generally prohibited. However, you may have grounds to file a claim against other responsible parties, including third-party contractors, subcontractors, or property owners.

At Dalbir Singh & Associates, P.C, our knowledgeable construction accident lawyers will investigate your case, define your legal options, and vigorously represent you to ensure you receive the maximum compensation for your injury.

A third-party construction accident claim refers to a civil lawsuit filed against a party other than your direct employer. This legal action seeks to hold responsible parties accountable for their role in the accident and the resulting injuries.

Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident, potential third parties that may be held liable can include:

  • General contractors

  • Subcontractors

  • Manufacturers of faulty or defective products, tools, or machinery

  • Property owners who failed to uphold construction site safety.

  • Engineers

  • Architects

  • Third-party vendors

  • Utility companies

  • Government agencies

  • Other individuals were present at the accident site on the day of the injury.

Determining liability for a construction accident requires the expertise of experienced attorneys who specialize in construction accidents. They employ various methods to identify the parties at fault, which may include:

  • Visiting the accident scene to gather crucial evidence.

  • Interviewing witnesses who were present during the incident.

  • Analyzing relevant reports and documentation

  • Accessing safety records related to the construction site.

  • Lost wages due to time off work during recovery.

By conducting a thorough investigation, skilled attorneys can establish the responsible parties and build a strong case on your behalf.

Filing a construction accident claim provides you with the opportunity to seek both economic and non-economic damages, unlike workers' compensation, which typically covers only economic damages.

Economic damages that you may be entitled to include:

  • Medical expenses, including current and future costs.

  • Medical devices are required for treatment or rehabilitation.

  • Anticipated medical bills and long-term care expenses.

  • Costs associated with physiotherapy and rehabilitation.

  • Consulting with specialists in construction or other relevant fields to evaluate safety protocols.

  • Loss of employment benefits.

  • Expenses for home or vehicle modifications necessitated by the injury.

  • Property damage resulting from the accident.

  • Funeral and burial costs in cases of wrongful death.

Non-economic damages that you can pursue may include:

  • Compensation for pain and suffering endured because of the accident.

  • Damages for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

  • Recovery for emotional distress experienced.

  • Compensation for the deterioration of your overall quality of life.

To understand the specific damages, you can seek and ensure you receive fair compensation, consult with experienced construction accident attorneys who can advocate for your rights and navigate the legal complexities of your case.

According to New York state law, you have a three-year window from the date of the construction accident to file your claim. Failing to meet this deadline can result in the forfeiture of your right to seek compensation for your injuries.

Hiring a skilled legal representative ensures that you adhere to all necessary deadlines and handle the required paperwork promptly and accurately.

If you sustain an injury on a construction site, it is crucial to follow these steps:

  • Call 911 for immediate medical assistance. Waiting for an ambulance ensures prompt medical treatment and creates an official record of the accident occurring on the construction site. Avoid accepting a ride to the hospital from a co-worker or supervisor, as this can raise disputes regarding the accident's location.

  • Use your phone or ask a co-worker to document the injury and the condition of the construction site through photos and videos. Construction sites undergo changes, and capturing the site's condition at the time of the accident is crucial evidence.

  • Seek medical treatment at a hospital and provide thorough details about your injuries. Even seemingly minor injuries should be reported, as they may develop into significant problems later and become more challenging to attribute to the construction accident.

  • Refrain from discussing the accident with anyone other than your doctor or lawyer. Conversations with co-workers, employers, or site safety supervisors can be used against you in the future.

  • Attend all scheduled doctor's appointments and follow medical advice diligently. Failure to do so can impact both your health and your legal case.

  • Contact Dalbir Singh & Associates, P.C. on 212-428-2000 to initiate an investigation into the accident. It is crucial not to sign anything or provide recorded statements without the guidance of legal representation.
