Why You Need a Brooklyn Personal Injury Lawyer
If you have been injured on a jobsite, you need an experienced New York construction accident lawyer to help you win your case. Contractors and developers are represented by insurance company defense lawyers whose job is to deny or shift blame away from their clients. Victims who are without lawyers capable of standing up to the insurance company’s counsel are often unaware of the recovery they are entitled to obtain for their pain and suffering and may also be forced back to work while they are still injured. You will need an even more experienced New York construction accident attorney in order to win your case against them.
You cannot risk handing your claim alone. We can handle every aspect of your personal injury case from investigation to litigation. For more than 20 years, Koenigsberg & Associates Law Offices has been winning New York construction accident cases.

$5.75 million dollars for a demolition worker who severely injured his spine when he fell from a ladder

$1.5 million dollars for a bricklayer who hit his back when his scaffolding broke

Who is Liable for Damages After a Construction Accident?
Often after a construction accident, it is the owner, developer, or general contractor who should bear much of the responsibility for the unsafe work conditions.
Also, in many instances, there are others that can be held accountable as well:
- Management companies
- Drywall companies
- Crane operators
- Concrete contractors
- Equipment manufacturers
Workers’ compensation only covers a portion of lost wages, and medical expenses directly related to the accident. The injured worker can also seek recovery against developers, land owners, building owners, general contractors, inspectors, machinery operators, crane companies, subcontractors, and others. If you have been the victim of a hazardous construction site, you need an expert NYC construction accident lawyer to review your case, determine liability, and ensure that everyone at fault is brought to justice.
Parties that can be pursued for damages in an NYC construction accident case include:
- Building owners
- General contractors
- Engineering firms
- Construction equipment manufacturers
- Crane operators
- Site inspectors
- Equipment providers
- Demolition companies
- Scaffolding contractors
