Much of New York City's infrastructure lives below street level. From subway tunnels to water tunnels, sewers and foundations for buildings and bridges, workers known as "sandhogs" are responsible for the behind-the-scenes work that makes life in the city possible. Unfortunately, much of this work is extremely dangerous and can leave workers injured and struggling to recover, much less support their families. If you or a loved one is a sandhog in New York who has been injured on the job, our exceptional attorneys care what happens to you and are ready to fight hard on your behalf for the compensation you deserve.

Sandhog Injuries And Illnesses

New York sandhogs face a range of dangerous conditions and accidents on the job every day. The work of tunnel excavation and drilling can trigger tunnel collapse, crushing and killing workers. Workers have been injured by falling objects, defective machinery, flooding and other hazards. In an enclosed space, workers also inhale fine dust particles, which over time can lead to serious lung disease like silicosis.
