New York Construction Accident Attorneys

Over $500 Million in Verdicts & Settlements

Construction is widely viewed as one of the most dangerous industries in the country. According to statistics from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the agency charged with the task of ensuring “safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women” across the U.S., one in five worker fatalities occur in the construction industry.

If you or someone you love was injured at a construction site, you may be entitled to benefits or compensation to cover medical care, lost earnings, and possibly more. Our New York construction accident lawyers at The Sultzer Law Group P.C. can talk to you about what occurred and who may be responsible. Depending on the case, you may be able to seek workers’ compensation benefits or file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against an at-fault party. With a track record of case results that includes more than $500 million in recoveries, we know how to win inside and outside the civil courtroom.

Call (800) 552-0265 today to arrange your free, confidential consultation! Our team represents carpenters, roofers, electricians, laborers, supervisors, and all types of construction professionals.

Accidents & Injuries at Construction Sites

Construction sites are dangerous by nature, even when negligence is not a factor. Workers perform physically demanding tasks using heavy equipment and tools that require specialized training and experience. A single misstep or overlooked safety regulation could cause a serious accident that leads to catastrophic injury or the death of a construction worker.

According to OSHA, the four leading causes of construction worker fatalities are:

  • Falls: This may include falls from ladders, scaffolding, wall openings, or floor holes.
  • Struck by object: This may include workers who are struck by construction vehicles or flying/falling objects.
  • Electrocution: This may include contact with power lines or electrocution caused by faulty or improperly used equipment.
  • Caught in/between: This may include trench and structure collapses or similar incidents.

Fault-Based Construction Accident Claims in New York

While many construction accident claims are handled on a no-fault basis because they fall under the jurisdiction of workers’ compensation, which is provided regardless of who is to blame, there are some that require a fault-based approach. If a third party, such as a vendor, manufacturer, or construction site visitor, was to blame for an accident, this may provide grounds for a personal injury lawsuit.

With our extensive trial experience and our resources, our New York construction accident attorneys can help you with a claim involving third-party liability. The fair and swift resolution of your case is essential, and that is why you can trust us to take on only a limited number of cases at a given time.
