According to OSHA statistics, around 4,000 workers are killed while on
the job every year. That means on average, close to
90 workers die every week. Construction site jobs account for an average of 19% to 20% of workplace
deaths, and for even more workplace injuries.
Working on a construction site may be one of the most dangerous jobs, but
that doesn't mean that you don't deserve protection. You have
rights and those rights should be strongly fought for if you are suffering
from a construction site injury. Whether an employer failed to warn you
of possible hazards or a manufacturer failed to check the standards of
equipment or products properly,
the attorneys with our law firm will ensure all responsible parties are
held accountable for their reckless actions.

In 2001, associate Adam Deutsch represented a construction worker who was
working on the unfinished floor of the second story of a structure when
one of the floor planks toppled beneath his feet. Since he had not been
given the proper safety equipment,
he plummeted 15-20 feet. Our client sustained a
severe hip injury requiring surgical repair and which prevented him from walking for a year
after the accident. The jury found that the premises owner had violated
NYS Labor Law, and Mr. Deutsch was able to secure a
$4,500,000.00 jury verdict for our client.
Our experienced law firm has recovered more than
$2 billion in verdicts and settlements such as this one on behalf of clients and their families. No matter what
kind of construction accident you have been injured in, call on us. With
