Construction Site AccidentConstruction Site Accident

Construction sites are among the most dangerous work environments and the inherent risk of injury on these sites is often compounded by the negligence of owners or contractors.

Our attorneys provide thorough and effective counsel to people who have been hurt on a construction site in New York. We will carefully investigate the facts and circumstances of your case, traveling to the site, if necessary, to get a clear understanding of the accident. We will prepare and file all necessary documents during the legal process and will represent you in all hearings or proceedings, including depositions of witnesses, settlement discussions, and trial.

Our attorneys are experienced in the state and federal laws protecting the safety of workers on construction sites, including New York’s labor laws §240 and 241, which address an employer’s responsibility to provide safe ladders, scaffolding and other devices to workers. We handle all types of injury claims arising at a construction site, including injuries sustained from falls, defective product or machinery, negligent hiring, and motor vehicle accidents sustained on construction sites.

We take cases involving all types of injuries from sprains to catastrophic loss; including broken bones, brain or spinal cord trauma, paralysis, or amputation or loss of limb. We also handle wrongful death claims. We will help you pursue damages for all your losses, including lost wages and income, medical expenses and physical pain and suffering.

We handle construction site injury claims on a contingency fee basis. There will be no attorney fees unless we recover compensation for your injuries.


Workers Compensation Injury Workers Compensation Injury

If you have been hurt in the workplace, and your injury was caused by the negligence of someone other than your employer or coworker, you may be able to file a suit directly against that person, or against their employer. This type of suit is known as a third-party action and it offers advantages that a workers’ compensation claim does not.

Most importantly, you are not limited to a specific dollar amount based on the type of injury you have suffered. If you have been hurt on the job, you want to discuss your options with an experienced attorney who has helped others in situations like yours. When you come to Davis & Ferber after a work-related injury, we will carefully investigate the facts of your case, and if we determine that there is third-party liability, we will aggressively seek full and fair compensation for all your losses. If, however, your injuries were caused solely by your employer or a co-employee, we will refer you to highly competent workers’ compensation lawyers so that you can pursue the benefits you need.

We handle third-party claims involving all types of negligence or carelessness, such as the negligent operation of motor vehicles, poorly designed machinery, and the carelessness of subcontractors.

We handle workplace injury claims on a contingency fee basis. You will only be charged attorney fees if we recover compensation for your losses.


Police/Firefighter InjuryPolice/Firefighter Injury

If you are a New York police officer or firefighter and have been injured in the course of performing your job, you can seek compensation for your injuries under GML 205-e which imposes strict liability for any injuries suffered by a police officer or firefighter as a result of “neglect, omission, willful or culpable negligence.” This means that a person may be liable for your injuries, whether they were caused by direct or indirect actions.

Our attorneys fully investigate the facts and circumstances of your case, and will prepare and file all necessary pleadings and other documents to help you pursue the compensation you need and deserve. We will also be your advocate in all proceedings. We represent police officers and firefighters who have been injured in motor vehicle accidents, domestic violence calls, slips and falls on private property, and any other type of injury sustained in an accident during the course of duty. We appreciate all you give to New Yorkers, and we will work hard to give you back your future.

We also take wrongful death claims involving police officers and firefighters. We handle all claims under GML 205-e on a contingency fee basis. We only charge attorney fees when we recover compensation for your injuries.


Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA)Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA)

If you are a railroad worker and you have been hurt on the job, you might not be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits like most other state and federal workers. Instead, you may seek compensation under the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA).

In a FELA claim, unlike under traditional workers’ compensation statutes, the injured party must show that the railroad company was legally negligent and that this negligence caused or contributed to the injury. Once negligence is proven, you are entitled to full compensation, which can be substantially more than what is provided for in state workers’ compensation programs.

At Davis & Ferber, our attorneys handle all matters related to FELA claims. We will conduct an exhaustive investigation of the causes of your injury, traveling to the scene of the accident if necessary. We will work with engineers and other experts, and will review all pertinent maintenance records maintained by the railroad so that we can clearly establish the cause of your injuries. We handle all FELA claims from a broken bone to a significant brain injury. We also handle wrongful death claims involving train accidents.

We will help you recover full and fair compensation for all your losses, including lost wages and income, medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and pain and suffering. We handle all FELA claims on a contingency fee basis.
