Albany Work-Related Accident Lawyers

Schenectady Work Site Injuries Lawyers

Employers have a responsibility to provide their employees with safe working conditions. However, in modern workplaces — and particularly on construction sites — there are many factors outside the control of individual employers that can cause serious injuries and fatalities.

At the law firm of Law offices of Sanford Rosenblum, my Albany work-related accidents attorneys help workers and their families pursue full compensation for the harm done to them. Each of the lawyers at my firm has been practicing law in New York for more than 25 years.

Dedicated Advocates for Injured Workers

My personal and work-related injury law firm helps injured workers go beyond workers’ compensation by pursuing personal injury claims against the parties who caused their injuries. I represent clients who have been catastrophically injured due to the negligence of others in circumstances like the following:

  • Construction site falls: The property owner, the general contractor and the employees on a construction site are each responsible to assure that workers are provided with proper fall protection and to prevent hazardous conditions that could cause workers to fall and suffer serious injuries.
  • Falling objects on construction sites: On a construction job site, objects that could potentially fall and seriously injure workers need to be carefully secured.
  • Scaffolding accidents: Under New York law, if you have been injured in a fall from a scaffold, the property owner and general contractor are legally responsible.
  • Safety harness accidents: Your employer is responsible for providing equipment that is not faulty and adequate training on how to properly use it in a dangerous environment.
  • Chemical spills: When workers are not given adequate warnings and training about chemical exposure in the workplace, they can develop serious, life-threatening conditions.

These are just a few examples of situations where an injured worker may have a personal injury claim in addition to any workers’ compensation benefits he or she may receive.
