Let Us Fight for the Payout You Deserve

New York laws allow us to pursue compensation from a property owner, general contractor, and subcontractor after a construction accident. For example, if a construction worker is injured by tripping on debris or scattered tools or materials in a work area, then the owner of the property and the general contractor may be held responsible for the accident.

Let us review the circumstances of your accident so we can identify any liable parties. Call us at 516-932-0400.

Call Us Today Before Time Runs Out

New York gives us a limited time to file a lawsuit. It is important to act quickly after you suffer injuries, so we can identify any negligent parties and hold them liable. Once the deadline passes, the court will bar us from taking any legal action.
