Construction Accidents

Few places are as complex and dangerous as a building site, with multiple contractors and workers working simultaneously on several projects. We have come a long way in developing safety standards and safeguards, but accidents still occur fairly often.

Being injured is devastating for you as an injured worker, but being unable to provide for your family can be even more devastating. Serious construction accidents can leave you disabled, either temporarily or permanently. Weisman & Calderon LLP will make sure that your recovery takes into account all of your damages, including the inability to work and provide for your loved ones.

Weisman & Calderon LLP has years of experience dealing with accidents in the workplace, and our attorneys are familiar with both state and federal Labor Law rules and safety standards, as well as the roles and duties of the different parties at a construction site. Whether an accident involves falling from a scaffold or roof, or equipment failure, knowing whom to sue is as important as why to sue. Many times, workers are accused of causing their own accidents due to carelessness. However, the Labor Law may make the owner or contractor responsible for accidents even if the worker may have been careless. Don’t assume you are responsible for an unfortunate accident until you have consulted Weisman & Calderon LLP, or you may have unknowingly forfeited a potential recovery which you and your family may be entitled to receive.
