Construction is an important part of our infrastructure. Without construction workers, we wouldn’t have roads, bridges, buildings, or our homes. As important as the industry is, however, it is also one of the most dangerous lines of work. Every day that construction workers go out on the job, they risk getting badly injured at the
Construction accident fatalities have become a public health epidemic that is brought on by inadequate safety regulations and public inattention. This important occupation saw an average of 20 people die on the job every year between 2007 and 2014. This number does not seem to be decreasing, but rather increasing with every year. These numbers
New York City construction sites recently experienced 2 more fatal accidents on the same day. The first fatality happened when a veteran construction worker lost his balance and fell off the 29th floor of the 1 Seaport Residence.

New York’s Scaffold Law has been the topic of debate for many years. New York carved out this special provision under its Labor Laws to allow injured construction workers to get money damages from negligent property owners and contractors. New York’s construction industry is thriving and employment is at its highest level in 24 years.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
