Work Site Accidents

New York Construction Work Site Accidents

Work sites are filled with ways to get hurt. Every day a person shows up to work, he or she is taking a risk, but that risk should not be made greater by companies who cut corners. If you have been injured at work, it is important to have a dedicated lawyer look at the facts of your case to determine what you are entitled to receive.At O’Dwyer & Bernstien, LLP, we are well-known and well-respected throughout the New York metropolitan area. The insurance companies know we mean business, and we have obtained big verdicts and settlements for those who have suffered injuries in work site accidents.

How Were You Hurt?

If it turns out you were hurt as a result of a company’s or contractor’s negligence, we can help you obtain compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and other damages. For example, many work sites are poorly run and maintained, employ unsafe work practices, lack proper safety equipment, such as netting and harnesses, or are home to unsafe structures such as ramps and temporary stairways. This is unacceptable and often a violation of the law.

Whether your work site is a construction site, an office building or a warehouse, we have the skills and resources to make sure you get maximum compensation. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation with one of our experienced attorneys.


“O’Dwyer & Bernstien has helped me in several different situations over the last 12 years that I’ve lived in NYC. They’re my go-to firm because they always obtain the results that I need and deserve. They’re also located in downtown Manhattan, which makes them very convenient. The office and people that work there are exactly what you’d expect from a top tier law firm in the world’s greatest city.”

“When I got hurt in a traffic accident while riding my bike in New York City, my friend suggested I speak to O’Dwyer & Bernstien. Upon my initial phone conversation with a lawyer from the firm I was impressed by his courtesy, quick return phone calls and concise explanation of the legal tactics available to me. After meeting face to face with him, I decided immediately to retain O’Dwyer & Bernstien to represent me in my personal injury case. I was very happy with my attorney and with the outcome of my case. I highly recommend O’Dwyer & Bernstien to anyone seeking legal representation.”

“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.”
