New York Attorneys for Construction Workers Injured by Dangerous or Defective Tools or Machinery

Negligent Design Faulty Construction | Poor Maintenance

On most construction sites, you’ll find a wide range of tools and machines, from power hand tools to cranes and other heavy equipment. When they work as intended, they can save time and reduce risk of injury. But when they are poorly designed, manufactured or maintained, they present a high risk of serious and catastrophic injury or death. If you or someone you love has been hurt when construction site equipment, tools or machinery broke down or malfunctioned, you want Sackstein Sackstein & Lee, LLP to protect your interests.

At the law office of Sackstein Sackstein & Lee, LLP, we have more than six decades of experience representing injured people in New York City and on Long Island. We know that a personal injury can change your life in an instant. We don’t employ a “one strategy fits all” approach, but view every client and every case individually. We understand that your goals and needs will be different than other clients. We will take the time to learn the particulars of your accident, as well as what you need to be made whole. We will keep you fully informed and involved throughout the legal process, advising you of all developments, as well as your options, so that you can make good decisions about your future.

We offer a free initial consultation to all potential personal injury clients. Contact our office by e-mail or call us in Garden City at 516-248-2234 or in Flushing-Queens at 718-539-3100 to set up an appointment.

Construction Site Injuries Caused by Dangerous or Defective Tools, Machines or Equipment

Our attorneys aggressively advocate for construction workers and others who have been hurt because of negligence or carelessness in the design, manufacture or maintenance of construction tools, equipment or machines. We will carefully investigate your case, traveling to the scene of your injury, if necessary. When appropriate, we will work with expert witnesses, such as engineers, financial consultants and medical professionals, to prepare and present the best arguments for your full financial recovery.

We handle cases involving:

  • Failure to properly design a construction tool, machine or piece of equipment to operate in a way that does not pose an unreasonable risk of injury
  • Carelessness in the manufacture of a construction implement
  • Negligence in maintaining cranes, ladders, scaffolding, power tools, elevators and other construction tools, machines and equipment
