Construction Accidents Attorney In The New York Metropolitan Area

Know Your Rights If You Are Injured

New Yorkers know that their city is constantly under construction. Improvements to streets and buildings are a guaranteed sight on the streets of Queens or any of the other boroughs. While this can lead to better neighborhoods, the risk of suffering a construction site injury is always present — and not just for the construction workers themselves.

Ordinary citizens can find themselves in need of a lawyer if they are injured at or near a construction site. The construction accident attorneys at our firm, Simon & Gilman, LLP, have the experience necessary to make sure that victims of construction accidents are properly compensated for their injuries.

Our Firm Represents Injury Victims

When it is not properly secured, scaffolding can be a major hazard. Pipes, boards or other construction materials that are exposed at street level can be dangerous for pedestrians. Objects falling from scaffolding do not have to fall from a great height in order to cause a serious or even fatal injury to an unsuspecting pedestrian.

Falling objects are not limited to construction sites, of course. If a section of a building is in disrepair or suffers damage from weather or vandalism, it could be at risk of injuring a passer-by.
