An Ally Of Accident Victims

Building Strong Cases For Workplace Accident Victims

As tradespeople 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. At Michael J. Gaffney Law Firm, I have been representing personal injury victims in New York and New Jersey in a wide range of construction and workplace accidents for over 40 years.

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, other laborers and their families in the following types of accidents:

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

How To Prove That Negligence Was The Cause

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 whether there was negligence and what we need to do to prove it.

I have extensive experience litigating in state and federal courts, 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.
