Construction Law Overview
The Law Firm of Leandros A. Vrionedes, P.C. represents construction workers who have suffered work-related injuries while working at construction sites throughout New York City. Construction injuries can cause severe injuries that result in permanent disability, paralysis, or even death. Although injured workers may seek workers’ compensation for on-the-job injuries, sometimes workers’ compensation benefits do not sufficiently cover all of the expenses employees incur, and other sources of compensation, such as third-party liability, may be available. In addition, the risk of injury or death in a construction accident is not limited to workers but extends to on-site visitors, passers-by, children, and others temporarily at the site. Any of these injured individuals may be able to file a claim and recover against the responsible, negligent party.
At the Law Firm of Leandros A. Vrionedes, P.C., we zealously advocate on our clients’ behalf to maximize their recovery in construction-related accidents. We seek recovery against property owners, contractors, manufacturers, engineers, and architects who are responsible for our clients’ injuries. Our office handles all the leading causes of construction accidents, including:
- Ladder Falls
- Forklift & Crane Accidents

- Injuries from Power Tool Use
- Trenching and Excavation Accidents

New York labor law imposes a duty on employers to protect the health and safety of their employees. At the federal level, regulations published by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) cover safety and health standards in the construction industry. Despite these laws and regulations, twenty percent of all workplace fatalities take place in the construction industry, and thousands of construction workers are seriously injured or killed in construction accidents each year.
