Given that construction sites are dangerous to begin with, safety is of the utmost importance. If one party acts negligently and does not take the necessary precautions to ensure safety, the repercussions can be very serious and result in life-altering injuries. At Sullivan Papain Block McGrath & Cannavo P.C., we represent construction workers and individuals who have been injured in scaffolding falls, crane injuries and more. We are one of the top personal injury firms in New York City and have obtained more than $2 billion in verdicts and settlements for our clients.
Cranes dot the skyline of New York. As much as they are a barometer of the construction boom taking place in the city, they can also present a deadly risk to construction workers, firefighters, and the public at large.
It is all too often a story on the news that a number of workers were killed when cranes collapsed at different construction sites in New York. The injuries and devastation caused by a crane collapse can be enormous and that is why if you are the victim of an accident involving a crane, you need a lawyer experienced in crane accidents.
Our firm has successfully litigated many high profile crane collapse cases some of which have involved multiple deaths. These are extremely complicated cases, and unless you have a lawyer with proven competency in this area of law you may be short changing your case and compromising your rights.
