Manhattan Construction Debris Attorney
Buildings in New York seem to be constantly under construction. Because the footprint of a construction site is often quite small, and because there are so many such sites, it may be difficult for you to avoid objects falling from unfinished buildings. This is true whether you are a worker at a site or a passerby.
When falling debris, tools and construction materials cause injury or death, it is important to consult an experienced construction accident injury attorney to learn whether you are eligible to file a lawsuit. You may be able to recover compensation for your injuries, damages and losses.
