Construction site and industrial accidents are the featured area of practice for The Garcia Law Firm, P.C. In fact our telephone number is 866-SCAFFOLD. The reason why our telephone number is 866-SCAFFOLD is because we are dedicated to representing victims of scaffold and ladder accidents in construction sites. Recent New York case law has found that people who work in cleaning including commercial house keepers that fall from a height may have a law suit against the landlord.
Case law in New York exists that falls by workers installing Direct TV or other satellite in single family homes can create a cause of action for personal injuries. For years there has been a cause of action in New York against commercial establishments such as a tavern when a satellite installer fell from a height during an installation.
While almost any type of workplace can offer unexpected accident risk, it is the responsibility of the employer to take action to keep that risk as low as possible. Construction sites may seem to be more hazardous than an office building or store, but even at the construction site, implementing rigid and enforceable safety practices can prevent accidents and dangers. Workers should be properly trained in the operation of scaffolds, ladders, machinery and the site properly managed according to legal standards.
Accidents at construction sites can often result in serious injuries or death. The Garcia Law Firm, P.C. has successfully handled many of these cases, including accidents from defective or collapsing scaffolds and falls off of or through roofing structures. Other cases that we have handled include electrocutions, ladder injuries, defective machinery, malfunctioning tools and injuries or death from the collapse of a part of a construction site.
At The Garcia Law Firm, P.C., we have represented numerous construction workers, satellite installers and commercial cleaning workers, and we are committed to the efforts of our attorneys who often work around the clock to do whatever needs to be done to secure justice for our clients.
If you or someone you know has suffered from an accident on a construction site, while doing commercial cleaning or installing a satellite dish such as Direct TV or Dish Network we can assist you in evaluating your case. Click here to contact us for a free case evaluation.
