Protect Your Rights If You Were Injured In A Serious Fall On A Construction Site
In New York City, construction workers can find themselves working on projects ranging from single-story structures to massive skyscrapers. A fall from any substantial height can result in life-changing or even fatal injuries. General contractors are required to take specific measures to keep workers safe from falls, and any failure to do so can create grounds for a liability claim.
If you were injured in a fall that occurred due to a hazard on the job site, you should seek the advice of an experienced New York City construction injury attorney immediately. General contractors will take decisive action to protect their own interests in these matters, and you should do the same. At Edelman & Edelman, P.C., we represent construction workers in a broad range of claims involving work-related falls from heights.
We represented the family of a painter who fell to his death because he was not provided with adequate safety equipment while working on a bridge rehabilitation project. Our attorneys obtained $5 million in damages for his surviving family members.

Our founding attorney, Martin Edelman, is known throughout the New York legal community for his knowledge of the injuries that can occur in construction site falls.

We put all of the firm’s resources behind the success of your case. We dig in and do the work that is necessary to put forth a compelling case on your behalf. We will not recommend any settlement offer unless we feel that it represents the best outcome available for your claim.
