Staten Island Construction Accident Attorney

Building Strong Cases For Workplace Accident Victims

As tradesmen build, renovate and repair buildings throughout the community, they are often working in dangerous conditions. When workplace accidents happen, accident victims can be left facing mounting medical bills and devastating injuries that prevent them from returning to work. I am Michael J. Gaffney, Attorney at Law, and I have been representing personal injury victims in New York and New Jersey in a wide range of construction and workplace accidents, for over 30 years. in 1

When working on skyscrapers or deteriorating buildings with equipment like scaffolding, tall ladders and cranes, accidents can lead to serious, and often fatal, injuries. I frequently represent carpenters, electricians and other laborers in the following types of accidents:

  • Being struck by falling objects
  • Falling from ladders
  • Construction site slip-and-fall injuries
  • Machinery accidents
  • Electrocution

Aggressive Representation From An Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer

Construction accidents require detailed information from the accident scene. I work with an investigator, a retired detective, who will take accident scene photos and conduct interviews with witnesses to establish exactly how the injury occurred. In many cases, I have worked with safety experts to determine where there was negligence and what we need to prove it.

I have extensive experience litigating in state and federal court, and provide effective, steadfast representation of clients who deserve to recover from their injuries. I also negotiate on behalf of clients, giving them straightforward, practical advice regarding settlement options and what is in their best interests. When you need an experienced attorney to help you recover from a construction accident, I can help.
