We Handle the Entire Case For Injured Workers including New York’s Construction Workers – Both in Workers’ Comp & Third-Party Lawsuits.
Every day, people in Westchester, the Bronx and the New York City area suffer from injuries caused by the negligence of others. What is negligence? Negligence is when a corporation or individual violates the laws and safety rules that provide standards of reasonable care to govern the way people drive, manage a workplace, or maintain property.
When a corporation or individual violates these standards of care they are needlessly endangering other people. People like you and me: at work, driving on the roadways, and even at home. When a person is injured because of the negligence of another, the negligent party is required to fully and fairly compensate them for the harms and losses caused by their negligence.Free Consultation (914) 723-1700
If you are suffering from a personal injury, your focus should be on healing. However, that can be difficult if you are out of work due to disability from your injuries and worried about mounting medical bills, or if you are facing pressure to provide a statement or agree to a settlement offer. Turn these worries over to an experienced Westchester personal injury lawyer. Your attorney should handle the legal issues involved in obtaining full and fair compensation to allow you to concentrate on your recovery.
Although each case is unique, there are some common features of personal injury claims. In successful cases, the injured individual can recover money—also referred to as damages—to compensate for both their economic losses and their pain and suffering. Examples of economic damages include:
In addition to recovering money for economic losses, people injured by another’s negligence can also recover money for pain and suffering, including emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life. These types of harms are also known as non-economic damages, which a Westchester personal injury lawyer can help to determine in any particular case.
Please note that each case must be evaluated on the specific facts and evaluation of a specific case may vary from “no merit” to a multi-million dollar recovery.
Cerebral Palsy suffered by triplets due to medical malpractice in their prenatal and perinatal care and treatment.
Verdict for child and parent for Brainstem injury with developmental delays resulting from mismanagement of shoulder dystocia during delivery of newborn.

What We Can do to Help You
People and corporations should never be allowed to needlessly endanger others. Drivers are not allowed to ignore red lights or stop signs. They should not follow other cars too closely to avoid rear-end accidents. Stores and other buildings open to the public are not allowed to ignore tripping hazards or slippery conditions such as snow and ice. General contractors and construction site operators must provide ladders, scaffolds, and other safety equipment for the safety and protection of construction workers.
When a company or person is negligent, that party is required to compensate the injured person for the damages caused by the negligence. However, that liability may be reduced or eliminated if the harmed individual was also negligent. If the injured person is partly at fault for causing the accident, then the amount of damages he or she can collect is reduced in proportion to the comparative degree of fault.
In some cases, there may be more than one party responsible for causing the same injuries. In a car accident, both drivers may be negligent, and the injured passenger could have a claim against both. Also, parties may be vicariously liable for the actions of another. For example, employers are responsible for the negligence of their employees who are acting in the course of their employment; and the company that operates a retail store is responsible for the negligence of its employee who failed to clean up a slippery condition on the floor.
There are special laws and rules that protect workers who are exposed to the extra dangerous conditions present at construction sites, such as falls from heights, defective or improperly secured ladders and scaffolds, being struck by falling objects, electrical burns and shocks, unguarded power saws and many, many other hazards. Proving negligence or a violation of a safety law or rule in a construction worker’s personal injury case is a complicated process. You must have an experienced personal injury lawyer who understands these special laws and rules and how New York courts in Westchester, the Bronx and New York City have ruled in construction accident cases. Lawyers Stanley Tomkiel and Matthew Tomkiel have long and in-depth experience and knowledge about construction accident cases. We can evaluate your situation and help you successfully pursue substantial money compensation for your damages.
We know that an attorney must advocate aggressively on your behalf, not only in the courtroom, but in every negotiation throughout the personal injury process. If you are suffering the effects of a construction site injury, call the personal injury lawyers at Tomkiel & Tomkiel today for a no-obligation free consultation to learn what options you have. We serve Westchester , the Bronx and all of New York City.
