A Putnam County construction lawyer at Fellows Hymowitz Rice can properly advise you of your very best route to success – and obtain the maximum compensation for your injuries and losses.

Part of our review of your case calls for the fine details – making sure that ordinances, building codes, safety and labor laws, OSHA etc were all properly followed. This can help to determine liability of the party or organization(s) (building owners and general contractors etc) we plan to file suit with, and uncover any negligence on their part. Our construction accident legal representatives will work to assemble evidence, check with experts, review your medical information and work toward a good settlement to pay your medical expenses, lost wages, etc.  We do not believe construction schedules and cost overruns should put any construction worker or passerby in harm’s way.

In our 100+ combined years of experience we’ve brought suit with respect to many construction site workers injured on job sites.   We’re knowledgeable and experienced in every construction trades — having the skill to vigorously check the facts of the case versus construction guidelines and safety/labor laws approved for a safer work site (i.e. NY State Labor 200, 240 and 241(6) and the Industrial Code).  We establish liability and vigorously seek financial settlements on behalf of our clients.
