New York City is currently enjoying a building boom, which has created jobs and is driving economic activity, much of it in Brooklyn and Queens. However, the direct consequence of increased urban development is an increase in construction accidents, putting workers and pedestrians at greater risk of serious and even fatal injuries.
At The Licatesi Law Group, we’re dedicated to helping victims of construction accidents get full compensation for their losses. Our skilled attorneys work as a team to evaluate your cause of action, investigate thoroughly and assemble the evidence to build a solid case for relief. We are often able to reach a successful settlement, but when a trial is necessary, we prosecute your case vigorously.
