Construction Accidents

Bronx Construction Injury Lawyer

The construction industry is admittedly one of the most dangerous lines of work anyone can pursue. Workers’ compensation benefits may provide critical financial support to injured workers or surviving family members. If you’ve been injured – or if you’ve lost a loved one – in a building accident in New York, speak at once to an experienced Bronx establishment wound lawyer at the Law Offices of Thomas J. Lavin. We guide injured construction workers through the complicated workers’ compensation process, and if you have any difficulty obtaining benefits, we will fight aggressively for the compensation that is rightfully yours.


With three decades of experience representing injured workers, we often find that workers’ compensation is insufficient or barely sufficient to cover the real costs of building injuries. In addition to workers’ compensation, in some cases you may be eligible to file a third-party personal injury claim if someone other than your employer was partially responsible for your injury. Those who might be targeted by a third-party claim include defective equipment manufacturers, negligent contractors, negligent machinery or motor vehicle operators, property owners, or anyone else partially responsible for your injury and suffering.

Common safety violations that cause construction accidents include:

  • Failure to provide adequate training
  • Failure to keep a worksite hazard-free
  • Poorly constructed guard rails, scaffolding, or stairs
  • Inadequate protection from electrical wires and equipment
  • Failure to warn employees of known hazards
  • Improper use of (or failure to use) equipment including safety equipment


Accidents on construction sites can cause traumatic brain injuries, amputations, spinal cord damage, and other catastrophic injuries that require lifelong care. The Bronx establishment damage lawyers at the Law Offices of Thomas J. Lavin fully understand the fears and concerns you face. Your job, family, and future may be threatened by a serious construction injury. By fighting aggressively for every cent of the compensation you need and deserve, we help you face the future.

The first thing I noticed about the Law Office of Thomas J. Lavin is how busy they are. The minute I walked through the door you could hear the phones ringing from everywhere, but he had the staff to service all of those clients, also they provide clients with experienced Bronx personal injury attorneys. The other thing I noticed was how organized, clean, and neat his office was. I was also very impressed with the way Mr. Lavin and his staff dress. No sneakers, and no blue jeans. This is a suit and tie operation. I was amused at how Mr. Lavin could jump back and forth from one staff member who had a question to another who had a concern that needed to be addressed. I would never go anywhere else! – Fode Conte
