Sustaining a construction-related accident can have severe consequences that last a lifetime. When a construction accident occurs, the victim usually experiences not only physical injuries but emotional damage as well. Their livelihood is also at risk, which impacts their employment and financial situation for years to come. Jeff Shapiro & Associates receives calls from victims of construction related accidents, many of whom are steeped in medical bills, struggling to navigate the legal aftermath of what has occurred. Due to the complex nature of construction-related accidents, we recommend enlisting the help of competent and experience attorneys who have your best interests at heart.
Successfully tried construction-related cases in the New York Metropolitan area
Jeff Shapiro & Associates has successfully tried construction-related cases in the New York Metropolitan area and has the experience to help you and your family move on and rebuild after the tragedy. We have worked with individuals who have sustained a number of different accidents. Falls from high heights and scaffolding are some of the most common construction accidents. Slips and falls are also quite common, usually due to a hazardous construction site, which is quite commonly the employer’s fault. Falling materials, including tools, is another commonly seen accident on a construction site. Electrocutions, while not as common, certainly happen as workers are exposed to power lines and unfinished electrical systems. It comes at no surprise that construction is a potentially dangerous industry to work in but if you have sustained any of the following at work, it is vital that you fight for a fair settlement. While no amount of money can undo the physical and emotional damage caused, a settlement will help you and your family find a sense of financial relief.
