Construction Accident Lawyer

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.

No matter how you were injured, call 212-571-7100 for a free initial consultation.

“I retained O’Dwyer & Bernstien on the recommendation of a friend. I was immediately impressed by the firm’s experience and reputation in personal injury law. From the start, my ODB attorney walked me through the process, answered all my questions, explained everything clearly, kept me updated regularly and always promptly returned my telephone calls and emails. My attorney was knowledgeable, professional, courteous and diligent. My case moved through the court system quickly. As trial neared, the insurance company saw that my attorney was experienced and thoroughly prepared to try my case to verdict. As a result, the insurance company caved and settled my case for the full limits of the insurance policy. I love my ODB attorney!”

“When I was hurt on the job I had nowhere to turn for help. I had been working as an electrician’s helper, but my boss was not insured and he had no license to do electrical work. I had just had a new baby girl and Con Ed was going to shut off my lights. A friend told me to call O’Dwyer & Bernstien. They took action right away and got great money for my case. ODB helped me get my life back on track. I will always be grateful.”
