Construction Accidents

Far too often, news reports document accidents involving victims injured by construction or workplace negligence. From giant crane collapses to inadequate scaffolding to improper clean-up or warnings, construction sites and workplaces breach the duty of care that is owed to workers and visitors alike.

With our $1 billion in settlements and hundreds of significant verdicts on behalf of our clients, KDLM's expertise is reflected in our track record. From multidiscipline investigation to diligent preparation through tough advocacy, KDLM is proud to help New Yorkers injured in construction and workplace accidents.

  • In 2016, KDLM senior trial associate John Beatty won a $1,665,000 verdict for a worker injured when he slipped on a wet floor while leaving his office. Maintenance workers had failed to properly dry the floor or post warning signs.
  • Several years ago, senior partner Tom Moore won a verdict of $3,088,500 for a man who was badly injured after he tripped on a loose floor tile while walking to answer an office telephone.
  • Another recent KDLM case yielded a $3,000,000 settlement for a plumber who was injured after falling off an unstable ladder.

KDLM has earned its national reputation representing people injured in construction and workplace accidents through a combination of hard work, attention to detail, a thorough understanding of construction techniques — as well as of the law — and aggressive advocacy.
