Construction workers face a greater risk of work-related injuries or death than other types of employees. Each day they encounter dangerous conditions and work on or around heavy equipment. Even if they take the proper precautions, wear the appropriate safety gear, and avoid unnecessary risk, they can still end up with a serious injury. Just because construction sites are inherently dangerous, however, doesn t mean that you lose your right to seek compensation if you are injured. The lawyers at Jacoby and Meyers help construction accident victims in the New York City area secure the damages they are entitled to.
Holding the Responsible Parties Liable for Your Accident
It is very important to identify the individuals or corporations responsible for your injuries. Unfortunately, New York law does not allow you to sue your employer for on-the-job accidents. You must file a Workers Compensation claim for which you can receive full coverage of medical costs, compensation for lost wages, and disability benefits. In many cases, this compensation is insufficient. If liability warrants, you can also pursue a lawsuit against negligent:
- Property owners
- Equipment manufacturers
- Co-workers or superiors who failed to repair or maintain equipment
The construction accident lawyers at Jacoby and Meyers will conduct an extensive and thorough investigation of your accident. Working with industry and medical experts, our accident specialists will diligently uncover evidence and identify liable parties. Using our vast resources, our skilled trial lawyers will expertly prepare and persuasively argue your case, be it a Workers Compensation claim to lawsuit.

Client Testimonials Responsive
“I was in a car crash in the Bronx when someone rear ended the car I was in. At first I didn’t think I was hurt too badly but the pain in my neck and back got worse and worse. I saw the Jacoby & Meyers law firm ad where David slew Goliath and they asked “Who will stand up for you?”. I knew that was the firm I needed to stand up for me and they did a great job doing that. Everyone was super nice and answered all my questions. The trial lawyer treated me like family, she even came over for dinner and I knew she was fighting hard for me. When the insurance company didn’t offer a fair amount I knew she would fight at the arbitration and I was right. Definitely hire Jacoby & Meyers if you are in a car accident. ”

“I am so glad I contacted Jacoby & Meyers after I was struck by a car in Manhattan. I was hit by a cab while trying to cross the street and was seriously injured. My legal team at Jacoby & Meyers worked hard to get me a fair settlement, to them I just want to send my heartfelt thanks for all of their support and hard work. Their knowledge and guidance was very helpful. We greatly appreciate all the time and direction that was dedicated to my case. Thank you!”

“I had an excellent experience! Highly recommend! I called the injury lawyers at Jacoby & Meyers in NYC after the apartment building in New Rochelle I was walking by didn’t clean up the snow and ice on their sidewalk and it caused me to fall. I knew I needed to hold the property owner accountable and the attorneys at Jacoby & Meyers definitely did that. Sharon Scanlan fought for me until she got a fair settlement before a trial at the courthouse in White Plains in Westchester. Everybody I dealt with at the law firm was helpful and nice. I know I didn’t have the easiest case, but they got me a great settlement.”
