Handling Cases Involving Construction Site Safety Since 1981
Maintaining a safe construction site is one of the most important components in a construction site safety program. It is also one of the most difficult. Construction site maintenance involves almost all elements of the site and requires constant diligence on the part of builders and developers.
While achieving construction site safety is a challenging goal, state and federal laws and regulations both guide construction site operators and hold them accountable. When they fail to operate a safe construction site and injuries occur, injured workers usually have the right to pursue compensation.

New York Construction Site Maintenance Lawyers
We can provide the experienced legal assistance you need following injuries due to construction site safety lapses. We can represent you if you have suffered injuries caused by:
- Dangerous equipment
- Unclean tools and machinery
- Scattered items that can result in slip-and-fall accidents
- Electrocution resulting from improperly connected extension cords, poorly maintained power tools and the failure to place rubber mats over potentially harmful ground wiring
- Unsafe building and site ingresses and egresses/entries and exits
- Failure to lay wood planks down over unsafe surfaces
- Collapsed trenches
- Defective scaffolds, ladders, saws, nail guns, forklifts and cranes
- Unsafe inclines
- Failure to provide safe surfaces after rain and snow
Did you fall through an unprotected and unfinished stairwell? Did you slip while moving a wheelbarrow up or down a slippery surface? Were you required to move unsafely from one scaffold to another? You may have a right to pursue both a workers’ compensation claim and a third-party claim.
Third-party claims, which are filed against someone other than your employer or co-worker, can result in higher monetary awards that workers’ compensation. At The Orlow Firm, our attorneys have more than 30 years of experience helping clients obtain the results they deserve.
