Construction Accident Lawyers New York

Falls from Heights | Improper Guard Rails | Ladder or Scaffolding Collapse | Poorly Maintained Construction Elevators | Inadequate Safety Precautions

When you are working on a construction project, from a single family home to a high-rise, chances are good that you’ll be working at some elevation above the ground, whether on a roof, an upper floor, in a crane, or on a ladder or scaffolding. Because of the high risk of injury when you fall from any height, you expect the owner and contractors on the site to take reasonable precautions to minimize the risk of such an injury. Unfortunately, in the drive to maximize profits, corners often get cut. When you have been hurt in a fall from a height at a construction site, you want an experienced attorney to protect your rights. We can help.

At Sackstein Sackstein & Lee, LLP, our lawyers have protected the rights of injured people in New York City and Long Island for over 60 years. We know that a personal injury can change your life in an instant. We will use our considerable knowledge, skill, experience and resources to help you pursue full financial recovery for your losses. We understand that every case is unique, and will take the time to learn the details of your accident, as well as your needs, so that we can formulate and employ the best strategy to get the outcome you want.

Contact us online or call our office in Garden City at 516-248-2234 or in Flushing-Queens at 718-539-3100 to schedule a meeting. Your first consultation is free of charge.
