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.

Why Choose Our Construction Accident Lawyers?

  • Billions of dollars recovered in compensation for clients
  • More than 200 years of collective experience
  • Chosen for Best Lawyers in America® every year since 1997

A hard hat sign hanging up in a construction site is not nearly enough precaution for those who work there. Safety protocols must be constantly reinforced and practiced by everyone on the crew, from managers down to temps. A single mistake or moment of negligence or recklessness can unfold into a serious construction accident without warning and catch employees off-guard.

Contact our world-class lawyers today to learn how we can pursue justice on your behalf and obtain the financial recovery you deserve.

Pursuing Full Compensation

When a construction worker is injured on-the-job, they might believe that workers’ compensation will provide them with all the monetary relief required to make a full and comfortable recovery. This is an unfortunate misconception. If you want to get back on your feet again without reaching deeply into your own savings accounts, you have to take matters into your own hands and file a personal injury claim against the negligent party.

We represent clients who have been injured in the following types of construction accidents:

  • Scaffolding Accidents
  • Falls
  • Crushing Accidents
  • Burn Injuries
  • Electrocutions
  • Falling Objects
  • Crane Accidents
  • Equipment Malfunctions or Failures

Filing a Lawsuit After a Construction Accident

With so many parties coming together to raise a building out of nothing, it might not be readily apparent who is responsible for your injuries you sustained while working on construction site. Our New York construction accident attorneys know New York State Labor Law up and down, front to back, providing your case with the insight needed to determine what went wrong and why. Perhaps even more importantly, we can review the accident to see who is responsible.

You may need to file a personal injury lawsuit against:

  • Employers
  • Building Owners
  • General Contractors
  • Coworkers
  • Equipment Manufacturers
  • Safety Inspection Staff

Why Hire Morelli Law Firm?

Proven Results, Proven Compensation

In 2011, 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.

In 2014, Attorneys Benedict Morelli, Adam Deutsch, and David Sirotkin represented a 20-year-old construction worker, who, after falling off a building, sustained traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other severe physical injuries. Our client was awarded a $62,000,000.00 verdict.
