New York Construction Tools Accident Lawyer
Construction sites are inherently dangerous, but the tools used by construction workers should reduce a worker’s danger, not add to it. All too often, however, the tools at a given site are poorly maintained or not the correct ones for the job at hand. Even worse, may times the operator is not properly trained in how to use the tool, and is under pressure to complete the task because every labor hour costs more money.
When the tools of the trade cuse an accident, resulting in injury to the user, it is important to learn about your rights from an experienced legal adviser with knowledge of personal injury law.

We also represent clients in cases involving heavy equipment and work vehicles such as those used in road construction. Some of our cases involve wrongful death claims, in which we help family members file lawsuits after the death of a loved one in accidents caused by tools used on the job.
Cases involving accidents using tools can take several forms. Some may be product liability cases involving design or manufacturing defects such as missing or improper safety guards. Others may be against a subcontractor who failed to provide required safety equipment, such as eye guards. Often, adequate training in the use of the tool is not provided to all users. In all instances our attorneys build strong cases that seek the maximum recovery.
