The average person may not view the job of a carpenter as a particularly risky one. After all, the job does not seem inherently dangerous. They aren’t working in coal mines, shining high-rise windows, or fixing the voltage on subway lines. But we know carpenters in a different light, having represented them for nearly two decades now. If you’re a carpenter that’s been in an accident, you’ll want a New York accident lawyer that’s experienced with representing cases like yours. The New York carpenter law firm of Michael Gunzburg has the experience and a client list to show for it.

Carpenters are often working within confined spaces and at times at extreme heights. Statistically, almost half of all reported carpenter accidents involve a fall. But at the law firm of Michael Gunzburg, you are not a statistic. We know that among falls, your job itself puts you at a high risk for injury. Carpenters are often injured when they fall off an unstable ladder, or when they get hit while moving large pieces of lumber and other construction materials. Carpenters involved in accidents typically sustain injuries to their neck, back and arms.

A common task like installing drywall with the use of a nail gun can turn deadly under certain circumstances. Consider a recent study from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. A young, inexperienced worker improperly fired his nail gun, launching a nail at 70 miles per hour through a wall and directly into the head of his co-worker…fatally injuring him. As a carpenter, you are at a high risk for electrocution as well, working indoors and outdoors in unfamiliar territories. As an experienced group of New York construction accident lawyers, we can help you reclaim the money you deserve from responsible parties. Typically, that means suing the building owner or General Contractor supervising the job site where you were injured.

Why hire us? As experienced New York City accident lawyers, we have access to specific information and nuances of the law that you may not know on your own. Did you know that practically every employee who is injured while working on a construction site in New York is entitled to Worker’s Compensation benefits? These benefits will cover your medical bills and your lost wages. Typically, large companies carry insurance policies that will protect you. However insurance companies are looking out for their bottom line, and have defense lawyers that will try to eliminate your claim. With the guidance of our firm, we can help you fight back and recover the compensation that you deserve for lost wages, medical bills, pain, suffering and loss of quality of life.
