We Have Represented Construction Accident Victims in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Westchester, Rockland, and Orange Counties for Over 40 Years.
Construction workers, in particular those who ply their trade on scaffolding or ladders, place themselves at risk every day they show up for work. Under New York labor laws, safety measures, including appropriate harnesses, hard hats and other precautions are required. However, in many instances, construction workers are still seriously injured due to falls from scaffolding or ladders. At Law Offices of Thomas L. Gallivan, PLLC, Attorneys at Law, our attorneys have the means and the knowledge necessary to obtain maximum compensation for inpiduals injured on construction sites.
Please contact us to discuss your potential construction accident case. Our dedicated, aggressive team of litigators and staff will ensure that you are properly compensated.
Worker’s Compensation is not Enough
After an accident occurs on a construction site, many victims are told by the property owner, contractor or safety personnel to contact Worker’s Compensation carrier with the promise that they will be “taken care of.” Unfortunately, Worker’s Compensation, while a valuable portion of any recovery, does not account for your pain and suffering or other damages.
If a third party’s negligence in any way caused or contributed to the accident, you may have a viable cause of action against them. For instance, in scaffolding cases, it often turns out that the scaffold was erected by a subcontractor or property owner. These lawsuits against third parties often result in additional compensation for the injured party.
