Inherent Risks Do Not Exclude Negligence

Sadly, it can be hard for tradesmen/women, such as plumbers, pipefitters, electricians, carpenters, steelworkers, bricklayers, and welders, etc., to garner understanding when they are injured. Many people operate under the flawed assumption that injuries are bound to happen on worksites and are just part of the job.

The fact that there are job site risks does not mean that negligence or violations of law should be excused. When preventable injuries occur, such as those stemming from equipment failures, inadequate safety equipment or improperly managed work sites employers, owners and general contractors need to be held accountable.

If you or a loved one has been hurt due to negligence, we will make sure you have the full compensation you need to recover from your injuries. Serious injuries require serious compensation. We will fight to make sure your damages are covered now and in the future and you are fully compensated for your pain and suffering as you continue to deal with the ramifications of your injury.

We have experience pursuing claims involving injuries such as:

  • Head injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Shoulder, arm and hand injuries
  • Knee, leg and foot injuries
  • Eye injuries
  • Hip injuries
  • Burn injuries

Are you ready to make things right? Let us fight for you and your family.

O'Dwyer & Bernstien are committed to fighting for injured laborers throughout New York City. We understand the risks that they face each day on the job site, and we want to ensure that they have the full compensation they deserve after an accident that left them unable to work.
