Construction sites and industrial facilities can be demanding and dangerous workplaces. Workers are often injured by unsafe work practices or environments. Job safety is of the utmost importance but is commonly overlooked by those responsible for ensuring a safe work environment. Developers, general contractors, sub-contractors, and outside vendors are responsible for conducting their work in a safe manner. In most circumstances, a worksite injury could have been prevented with minimal corrective actions by those responsible.
At Kelly & Ignoffo Law Group, we have extensive experience successfully prosecuting all types of construction and industrial accidents, including scaffolding/ladder falls, electrocution, lack of barricades, lack of safety training or equipment, and failures to remove or clean work debris. Successful prosecution of workplace injury cases requires broad expertise in various workplaces and knowledge of the laws and regulations that govern them. We consult with recognized workplace safety experts to develop individualized litigation strategies for each case and utilize applicable regulations to hold negligent parties responsible.
Our efforts and expertise have secured millions of dollars in compensation for injuries sustained by our clients. We fight for full reimbursement of all lost wages and medical bills, as well as compensation for pain, suffering and the inability to return to a normal life.
