Open Elevator Shaft Way Accidents

New York law recognizes the increased danger that accompanies working with heights in the construction industry. Although New York's so-called "Scaffold Law" has some complications and wrinkles, it places the responsibility on general contractors and owners for injuries caused by heights, like elevator shaft falls.

Our attorneys help clients throughout New York City obtain money for injuries caused by falls down elevator shafts and by objects and debris falling down elevator shafts. You need compensation and you deserve justice. Keogh Crispi can help.

We prepare all of our cases for trial right from the start. We know that the only way to induce the insurance company to offer the maximum amount of money available for our clients is to show the other side that we are prepared to bring a winning case before the court at trial — to show them they have something to lose. Elevator shaft accident injuries are usually quite serious or even fatal. We can help make sure you get the best monetary award possible.

Monetary Compensation For Undocumented Workers

If you are an undocumented immigrant who has been injured on a construction site, contact us immediately. Don't let anyone (a supervisor or employer) tell you that you will be penalized if you report your injury. You are entitled to receive money for your construction site injuries even if you are an undocumented worker.
