Construction Workers

Construction sites can be dangerous places, exposing workers to serious injuries involving heavy equipment, falls from heights or falling objects. When injuries happen as a result of negligence, construction workers can pursue a personal injury claim to collect compensation for damages such as hospital bills, lost earnings and other ongoing damages.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury, it is crucial to have the right legal representation on your side. At O’Dwyer & Bernstien, LLP, we provide attentive service to injured construction workers in Manhattan and throughout New York City, including those who have suffered:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Injuries caused by falls from ladders or scaffolding
  • Injuries caused by falling objects
  • Injuries caused by lack of safety equipment
  • Injuries caused by tools and machinery

The first step in getting what you deserve is making sure you have the medical treatment you need to identify the full severity of your injuries. From there, we will work with experts, such as medical professionals, vocational experts, economists and others, to build a strong case for the full compensation you need for medical expenses, lost earnings and other damages. For traumatic brain injuries, spinal injuries and other lifelong injuries, the damages can be severe.

What can you expect from our firm? First of all, your case will be handled by an experienced partner, not an associate or paralegal. Secondly, you can rest assured that we will seek the assistance of professional experts — such as medical experts, economists and life-care planners — where necessary to bolster your case.

Our attorneys will not be satisfied until you have the resources you need to move forward and take care of your family. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation. If you cannot come to us, we will come to you.

“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.”
