Lawyers Helping Long Island Construction Accident Victims
The attorneys at Cellino & Barnes have a deep respect for our New York construction workers. We appreciate the risks you take to get the job done!
Unfortunately, we have seen first hand how negligence on the part of contractors and property owners, can cause serious and life-changing injuries.
New York State has a statute that provides special legal protection to workers while working at heights. The statute is Labor Law Section 240, also know as the "Scaffold Law." This law was put in place to protect construction workers when working at elevated heights. The "Scaffold Law" requires contractors and the owners of construction sites to provide safety equipment and training, such as harnesses and hoists to their workers.
When a construction accident happens, and it is shown that a contractor or property owner did not provide the proper safety equipment to protect their worker, they can be held legally liable for your injuries.
Cellino & Barnes has represented hundreds of injured construction workers and has obtained numerous multi-million dollar settlements. We serve construction accident victims on Long Island, Manhattan and across New York State.
