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.
