Fellows Hymowitz Rice has already established great success in seeking settlements for our clients who have suffered injuries in construction accidents.  As your lawyers, we look to review the facts of the case, your medical documents and the evidence supporting liability and/or negligence.

A Westchester County construction legal professional at Fellows Hymowitz Rice can properly help you of your best path to success – and acquire the utmost 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 can help to determine liability of the party or organization(s) (building owners and contractors etc) we plan to file suit with, and uncover any negligence on their part. Our construction accident lawyers works to gather evidence, talk to experts, review your medical records and work toward a favorable settlement to hide 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.
