New York Airport Construction Accident Lawyers

Construction is always being done at New York’s JFK Airport and New York’s LaGuardia Airport.  Whether it is the construction of a new airline terminal, the demolition of an old airline terminal or any other construction, demolition, or renovation that takes place at the airport, New York’s construction workers are often asked to do dangerous work at New York’s airports.

Construction workers, due to the nature of their work generally face a greater risk of work-related injury or fatality than employees in any other U.S. industry.  New York has laws designed to help protect construction workers as they do their dangerous jobs.  These laws, New York Labor Law §200, §240(1) and §241(6) are generally applicable to construction work done at New York’s airports.  Unfortunately, many times injures happen at construction sites when owners or general contractors violate these laws and related code(s).
