Construction Accidents

According to OSHA statistics, around 4,000 workers are killed while on the job every year. That means on average, close to 90 workers die every week. Construction site jobs account for an average of 19% to 20% of workplace deaths, and for even more workplace injuries.

Working on a construction site may be one of the most dangerous jobs, but that doesn't mean that you don't deserve protection. You have rights and those rights should be strongly fought for if you are suffering from a construction site injury. Whether an employer failed to warn you of possible hazards or a manufacturer failed to check the standards of equipment or products properly, the attorneys with our law firm will ensure all responsible parties are held accountable for their reckless actions.

Pursuing Compensation for Your Pain and Suffering

If you have been injured on the job or lost a loved one in a construction site accident, you may be eligible for compensation. From medical expenses to monetary damages for pain and suffering, our team of attorneys will make sure you get the justice you deserve.

We represent clients who have been injured in the following types of construction accidents:

  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Falls
  • Equipment malfunctions or failures
  • Burn injuries
  • Electrocutions
  • Crushing accidents
  • Falling objects
  • Crane accidents

In 2001, associate Adam Deutsch represented a construction worker who was working on the unfinished floor of the second story of a structure when one of the floor planks toppled beneath his feet. Since he had not been given the proper safety equipment, he plummeted 15-20 feet. Our client sustained a severe hip injury requiring surgical repair and which prevented him from walking for a year after the accident. The jury found that the premises owner had violated NYS Labor Law, and Mr. Deutsch was able to secure a $4,500,000.00 jury verdict for our client.

Our experienced law firm has recovered more than $2 billion in verdicts and settlements such as this one on behalf of clients and their families. No matter what kind of construction accident you have been injured in, call on us. With a proven track record of success and a commitment to putting our clients first, Morelli Alters Ratner is here to help you pursue fair compensation.
