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.

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.
