New York Construction Accident Lawyer

Rich & Rich, P.C. provides high quality, personalized legal services to victims of serious injuries. These injuries occur frequently at construction sites and it is not surprising that construction is consistently reported as one of the most dangerous occupations. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics construction workers incurred the most fatal injuries of any industry in the private sector in 2009.

Scaffolding can collapse, cranes can topple, and workers can suffer injuries to the head in falls and from falling objects. The Bureau of Labor Statistics 2008 fact sheet, show that 42% of crane-related fatalities occur due to a falling object.
Job sites are dangerous not only to workers, but also to passersby. Brain damage and other serious injuries can occur, leaving the injured victim without wages and with mounting medical expenses.

Rich & Rich, P.C., accident attorneys helped an ironworker who fell 20 feet and suffered multiple fractures and severe internal injuries recover $2,750,000 through settlement after mediation. For another client, a victim of a scaffolding accident that caused a fractured elbow, fractured nose and several herniated discs, we recovered $1,600,000 in settlement at mediation.
