Construction Site Fall Lawyer in NYC

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (a division of the U.S. Department of Labor) reported that in 2013, 17 out of a total of 56 work-related deaths in New York City were construction site fatalities. The Bureau also reported that 15 workplace fatalities were due to falls, slips, and trips. With some overlap between these two sets of statistics, we can conclude that construction site falls are a sometimes deadly hazard in the city.

Many construction-site falls do not result in death, but serious or catastrophic injuries. If you were injured or if your close family member was injured in this way, you are doing the right thing to look for a highly qualified lawyer to advise and represent you. Your entire future could depend on whether you recover the compensation you need to cover medical bills, replace lost wages, and acknowledge your pain and suffering (or loss of companionship).

In addition to handling construction-related accident claims for years, attorney Richard M. Kenny worked in construction while earning his law degree. He has firsthand knowledge of the hazardous conditions at construction sites such as those where many of our clients have been injured.

Construction site falls happen through a variety of circumstances, including:

  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Crane accidents
  • Ladder accidents
  • Slip-and-fall accidents involving debris on walkways

A workers’ compensation case can be opened immediately after a fall injury. Beyond this, a skilled lawyer can get an investigation underway to gather evidence for an injury claim or lawsuit. Responsible parties may include the owner of the building, an employer who failed to exercise safety procedures, and/or any third party whose negligence contributed to the fall accident.

The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny reassured those injured by providing them with a proven-effective attorney. This law firm has recovered more than $100 million for injured people, including injured workers such as construction workers. In one recent construction accident fall case, we recovered $4.3 million for a construction worker who fell from a scaffold. His brain injuries will prevent him from working for the rest of his life.
