Representation for a Wide Variety of Accidents
While many of these accidents are unintentional, there are hundreds that
happen each year due to negligence, unmaintained worksites, and poorly
manufactured equipment. Workers often think that they are unable to pursue
a claim and as a result, go without the compensation they need for their
injuries and suffering. Our firm is here to change that.
We can provide assistance for cases of all kinds, including those related to:
- Out of code wiring
- Factory explosions
- Excavation blasting accidents
- Liquid propane explosions
- Explosions caused by defective products
These accidents can cause severe burns, nerve damage, and even loss of
limbs. The shockwave of an explosion alone can cause considerable damage,
including severe concussions, bone fractures, and traumatic brain injuries.
Unfortunately, medical bills are often exorbitantly high, leaving victims
in debt for years into the future. Our firm can review the causes behind
your accident and help you pursue maximum financial restitution from those
responsible. With our assistance, you may be able to recover compensation
for damages such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages,
rehabilitation costs, and more.

Why You Should Hire Us
Construction Explosions and NY Labor Laws – Who Is Liable?
Since the handling of flammable and highly volatile chemicals and materials
is a common occurrence in the construction industry, the state of New
York and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have
implemented strict laws and safety procedures to minimize the risk of
injury and hold those who own, administrate, and manage construction projects
accountable. In the event that a worker should be injured in an explosion
caused by another party’s negligence or failure to uphold these
standards, they may be able to pursue compensation for their losses either
by filing a workers’ compensation claim, a civil personal injury
lawsuit, or both.
