Plumbers And Carpenters Suffering Work-Related Injuries

Due to the nature of construction work, it only takes one mistake by one person for someone on a job site to sustain a serious injury. If you are a plumber or carpenter who was injured at work, you know workers' compensation benefits are available to cover some of the expenses associated with an injury.

Depending on the cause of your injury, you may be able to recover significantly more compensation in what is known as a third-party claim.

The attorneys of Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C., offer exceptional experience and a history of success for plumbers, pipefitters, carpenters and any person working in the construction industry.

Serving Injured Construction Workers Across The New York City Area

Over our firm's history, which spans many decades, we have helped people suffering from all types of injuries, including:

These injuries, in addition to causing significant pain and leading to expensive medical costs, can prevent you from working in your chosen profession for an extended period of time, if ever again. Our lawyers understand the stakes and will do everything in our power to help you recover the money you need now and for your future needs.

The below case is but one example of our work serving injured carpenters.

  • $2.5 million settlement for a 37-year-old carpenter foreman who was injured while supervising delivery of heavy material at construction site, where his employer was using a backhoe to unload materials. Those materials shifted and started to fall. Our client jumped off the truck to avoid being struck by the falling load. As a result, he injured his knee. We successfully argued that the defendants had violated the Industrial Code regulations regarding the use of material hoists. Our client suffered a torn medial meniscus and anterior cruciate ligament tear requiring two arthroscopic knee reconstruction procedures and developed a chronic low back injury due to his impaired gait.
