Construction Accident Lawyer Rockland County

Rockland County Construction Injury Lawyer

Fellows Hymowitz Rice has already established great success in pursuing settlements for our clients who have suffered injuries in construction accidents.  As your lawyers, we look to review the important points of the case, your medical records and the evidence supporting liability and/or negligence. We have been called upon to utilize both construction site staff and non-workers; passersby or visitors near to the site which can be incredibly dangerous who have been injured.  Much like any personal injury case – each has its details and that may influence the level of outcome. A Rockland County construction attorney at Fellows Hymowitz Rice can properly advise you of your best route to success – and obtain the maximum compensation for your injuries and losses.

A 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 helps to establish liability of the party or organization(s) (building owners and contractors etc) we intend to file suit with, and uncover any negligence on their part. Our construction accident attorneys will work to assemble evidence, seek advice from experts, review your medical records and work toward a favorable settlement to repay 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 on behalf of many construction site personnel injured on job sites.   We’re knowledgeable and experienced in every construction trades — getting the skill to vigorously check the reality of the case versus construction guidelines and safety/labor laws recommended 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 with respect to our clients.
