New York Construction Accident Lawyers

The NY Construction Accident Attorneys at the Law Offices of Thomas L. Gallivan, PLLC represent workers who have been injured on construction sites. Construction is a very large and important industry in New York, as well as the entire country. Often overlooked when people speak of construction work, is the risk construction workers face on a daily basis. According to government statistics, a large percentage of construction workers will be seriously injured or die due to an accident on a construction site. We aggressively represent individuals injured on construction sites as a result of:

  1. Scaffolding Accidents,
  2. Falls,
  3. Crane accidents,
  4. Electrocution,
  5. Falling Objects, and
  6. Machinery Accidents.

Adherence to safety standards on construction sites is of utmost importance. Unfortunately, we have seen many instances where owners and/or contractors have shirked their responsibilities and maintained job sites in a negligent manner, or violated regulations put in place to protect construction workers.

Worker's Compensation is not Your Only Option

Many NY construction workers believe that Worker's Compensation is their only option after being injured on the job. This is not true. Although workers may not be entitled to sue their employer, under certain circumstances, accident victims can file a personal injury lawsuit in order to recover full wages and benefits, medical expenses, and damages for pain and suffering. Worker's Compensation does not include a pain and suffering component.

Property owners, contractors, manufactures, maintenance companies and/or architects may be held responsible if their negligence resulted in the injury or death of a worker. The White Plains, NY Construction Accident Attorneys at the Law Offices of Thomas L. Gallivan, PLLC represent carpenters, electricians, shop stewards, drywallers, ironworkers, and any other individuals injured on a construction site.

Client Reviews
Last year I was injured in an accident, and for the first time, needed the advice of an attorney regarding how to proceed. I was referred to Thomas Gallivan through a family member who is a lawyer in Massachusetts. I am beyond pleased with how Thomas handled my case. He was knowledgeable, professional, and although the case was not as straightforward as some, he used every resource to ensure a positive outcome. Thomas communicated with me regularly and I felt completely informed and confident in his ability. He expertly negotiated a fair settlement that I was very happy with. The entire experience was extremely positive, during a stressful time for me. Thank you Thomas. Melanie
