New York Fatal Construction Accidents Attorney

Our Accident Lawyers Represent Grieving Families

Construction work is dangerous work, especially at great heights. Contractors and property owners have a duty to ensure that construction workers are protected from the potentially fatal consequences of crane accidents, scaffolding accidents, and other accidents. When they fail in these responsibilities, they can be held accountable. Construction safety law in New York is complex and most often requires an experienced attorney, like David Perecman and our staff at The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C.

Wrongful death claims can help provide for your family after a tragic loss. While no amount of money can replace a loved one, just compensation can help ease the stress of providing food and shelter. It can also provide resources for counseling and healing through the grieving process. Holding negligent parties responsible allows people a feeling of closure and justice, which can help families move forward.

Guiding You Through a Complex Wrongful Death Claim

Very often, the families of people who have been killed in construction accidents have both workers’ compensation and wrongful death claims. Coordinating these claims in order to maximize a family’s overall recovery can be a complicated and confusing process. When you are grieving for the loss of a loved one, you should not have to shuttle back and forth between different lawyers in order to keep tabs on multiple claims.

Our firm regularly handles both wrongful death and workers’ compensation claims on behalf of the families of construction accident victims. We work efficiently with medical experts and other professionals to document the causes and consequences of fatal construction accidents and then help hold the liable parties accountable.

We handle all types of construction accident cases, including:
