When you want something done right you hire a person with experience. That's true for carpenter, roofers and electricians and it's just as true for lawyers.
Construction accident lawsuits can be very complex. They may involve multiple sub and general contractors and different property ownership groups. The insurance companies for these entities will jump on any opportunity they can find to avoid responsibility for your accident.
If you have been injured in a fall, get an experienced attorney on your side and in your corner and do it now. If you have fallen from scaffolding, a roof, or a ladder, you may have serious injuries and you may have special protections that are difference between just getting by and getting the justice you deserve.
New York has certain Labor Laws that can work in you favor if your attorney knows how to apply them to your case. This is not something you want to do on your own. At the law firm of Bendall & Mednick, we have decades of experience helping construction accident victims navigate New York's labor laws and secure the compensation they deserve.

Labor Law Section 240 Protects Workers Who Are Injured in a Fall or by a Falling Object
Every worker has what he or she considers the "tools of the trade." For lawyers, the law is our primary "tool of the trade." One such tool is Labor Law Section 240 which requires certain groups of people to provide protections to workers who are performing work at or below an elevated spot. When those protections are not provided or they are provided but fail, like a scaffold collapsing, and a worker is hurt then Labor Law Section 240 may come into play.
Unfortunately, many people are not aware of this law and accept minimal workers' compensation benefits when they are actually entitled to significant compensation for their injuries.
