Representing Injured New York Construction Workers

Construction sites are dangerous places to make a living. Every day, you face the risk of an accident that can result in the loss of your health, your career and your ability to do the things you enjoy.

At O’Dwyer & Bernstien, LLP, we know what you have at stake. You should not have to bear the burden of a serious injury alone. Our attorneys will make sure the insurance company responsible for paying for your losses provides you with the full compensation you deserve. We have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for injured workers.

The following are examples of the types of construction accident cases we handle:

  • Unsafe construction sites: When employers cut corners on job safety, the ones who usually pay the price are workers.
  • Scaffold injuries: When scaffolding is improperly erected or lacking safety guards, the result can be tragic.
  • Ladder injuries: When working on a ladder, you are always one step away from a serious injury.
  • Falls: Falls are one of the most common types of construction accidents. They also tend to cause the most serious injuries.
  • Injuries from falling objects: Building materials and other objects falling from elevated work sites become dangerous missiles for those working below.
  • Trip-and-fall accidents: Trip-and-falls happen far more frequently than they should due to poorly maintained job sites.
  • Equipment injuries: When construction equipment is defective or unreasonably dangerous, it is the worker who suffers the injury.
