When construction companies and other employers in New York fail to maintain safe working conditions, it's often the unions who fight to improve conditions and look out for workers' best interests. Unfortunately, nonunion workers and undocumented workers do not have this luxury. For these workers, working in unsafe conditions is often part of the job and suffering an injury doesn't always lead to the same action one might expect.
At Paul B. Weitz & Associates, PC, in New York City, nonunion and undocumented workers are never on their own in the fight against unsafe or negligent employers. We make sure workers and their families have an attorney on their side who will fight for their best interests and help them recover the compensation they need and deserve.
You Don't Have to Be Afraid With Paul B. Weitz
Some employers in New York have been known to take advantage of nonunion and undocumented workers by forcing them to perform dangerous jobs that put their lives at extreme risk, paying workers under the table to keep certain costs out of the books and not providing proper safety equipment, among other things.
Because these types of workers lack union representation, they may be afraid to take legal action after a work-related accident or construction accident, forcing that worker and his or her family to shoulder the burden of medical costs and lost wages.
The lawyers at Paul B. Weitz & Associates, PC, understand your concerns and will make sure you have the fullest possible protection of the law when taking legal action against a negligent or unsafe employer. If you are an undocumented worker or the family of a worker killed on the job, we can even refer you to someone who can help you with immigration issues.
