New York Construction Accidents
Settlements - Lawsuits - Wrongful Death
Construction work. It's a good way to make a living...but it is also a dangerous job. Every year thousands of construction workers are injured in job site accidents.

At the New York personal injury law firm of Hacker Murphy, LLP, our lawyers are committed to helping hard-working people who have been injured on the job receive the compensation they deserve.
Under Section 240 of New York State Labor Law, contractors are held to strict liability for accidents that occur at worksites. If you or a family member has been injured in a commercial or residential construction accident, don't wait - contact one of our construction accident attorneys today for immediate action. We stand ready to help you obtain fair compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills and more.
