The Law Office of Richard Stelnik provides legal representation to construction site accident victims in New York. The firm is conveniently located in lower Manhattan.

Due to the heavy machinery, equipment and materials at construction sites, injuries incurred in construction site accidents can be extremely serious. Construction site injuries include fractures, eye injuries, head injuries, burns, crush injuries and amputations.

Even though workers compensation provides benefits to employees injured in work related accidents in New York, injured construction worker's still may be able to institute a lawsuit and recover monetary damages for their injuries from persons other than the injured construction worker's employer, such as, for example, general contractors, subcontractors and property owners.

Although many construction site accident cases settle before trial, the firm's philosophy is to meticulously prepare every case as if it will go to trial. Toward that end, the firm regularly works with accident investigators, engineers and medical professionals who assist the firm in preparing its cases for trial.

  • Scaffold Accidents
