Our team of experienced Buffalo construction accident attorneys at Andrews, Bernstein, Maranto & Nicotra PLLC knows the dangers that construction workers face every day. Too often, profits are put ahead of safety, resulting in serious personal injuries to construction workers. New York State has laws specifically designed to protect workers who are injured on a construction site. Proper safety protection must be provided by owners of buildings and general contractors for all workers. This includes but is not limited to providing safety devices such as harnesses, preventing dangerous debris from accumulating, and preventing workers from being struck by falling objects. We represent workers injured by many different types of construction accidents.
When a worker falls from a height—for example, off scaffolding, a ladder, or another elevated surface—serious injuries can result. New York State Labor Law 240 requires that proper safety protection be provided by owners of buildings and general contractors to all workers while they operate at a height. This protection includes harnesses, lifelines, and other equipment designed to prevent such falls.
Injuries sustained during demolition or excavation, due to a falling object, and as a result of other dangerous conditions on a construction site can compromise a worker’s ability to earn wages and provide for her or his family. In New York State, damages consist of several components, the most significant of which are physical damage, physical injuries, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. Less readily apparent injuries can include the psychological aspects of injuries. Added to one’s physical and psychological damages is an element of special damages that may include loss of wages in the future and the loss of earning capacity. Our dedicated Buffalo construction accident attorneys will aggressively pursue all legal remedies for the worker, including compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, and medical bills.

I was offered 0 on a low impact accident. After long litigation I was offered 100,000 which mr maranto rejected. I ended up with 235,000. I would definately use this firm again.
So far, so good! This law office appears to have it's stuff together. And I like the fact that they don't have to advertise like the the the other 2 law firms with the 444444 and the 888888 numbers which tells me they get a lot of word of mouth advertising..the best kind. Also I called one of the 444 and/or 888 numbers and the attorney was very short and rude. After my case I will do a follow up to let you all know how my complete experience was.
