Practice Overview:
Construction sites are inherently dangerous areas. From accidents involving heavy machinery to life-threatening falls, bystanders and workers alike remain at serious risk. If you are an unsuspecting passerby injured by a construction mishap, you may file a liability lawsuit against the company or person at fault. If you are a construction worker hurt on the job, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, including fully paid medical bills and partial wage reimbursement. But if your company violated New York’s scaffold law or other work safety statutes, you have the right to sue for additional compensation, including pain and suffering. To enforce your rights after a New York City construction accident, trust the personal injury lawyers at Barasch McGarry Salzman & Penson. With more than 100 years of combined legal experience, we fight to deliver the maximum recovery possible.

Professional Profile:
Since my admission to the New York State Bar, I have worked exclusively for law firms representing seriously injured victims of accidents and medical malpractice. I learned how to try cases from some of the most talented trial attorneys in New York City. For the past 22 years, I have been asked to participate in Trial Technique courses for both law students and other lawyers. I am especially proud of my association with the Urban Justice Center. I have long supported its mission and have served on its Board of Directors since 1997. The Urban Justice Center is known for taking very difficult cases on behalf of battered women, runaway youths, Veterans, the mentally ill, and the homeless people of New York. It fights for the poorest people of New York who have neither the resources nor the wherewithal to navigate through our court systems. Our firm recovered $5.2 million in settlements on behalf of 200 elderly homeless people displaced when a crane fell on the Woodstock Hotel in Times Square in 1998.
