Personal Injury Attorneys

Workers at construction sites face daily risks when they are working with and around heavy equipment. While workers’ compensation benefits are available to the injured and to the family members of workers who die in accidents, these benefits do not go far in compensating the victims. Anyone injured at a work site is entitled to sue any responsible party other than his or her immediate employer. Suits can be maintained against a general contractor, subcontractors, landowners, product and machinery manufacturers, sellers, distributors, maintenance and cleaning companies, and any other party responsible for the accident in any way.

At Dansker & Aspromonte, we are passionate advocates for injured construction workers and their families. We handle cases of serious injury and wrongful death in Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Queens, on Staten Island and Long Island or anywhere in New York.
