Areas of Practice

We represent workers who were injured on the job. We
can help workers who were injured in:

Ladder Accidents

Falls from ladders are a common hazard on construction sites. Ladder accidents result from unsafe practices, defective ladders, lack of training, and other causes. Individuals working near a ladder can also suffer injuries from falling objects or people.

Trip and Falls

When equipment, power cords, supplies, and other debris accumulate on a job site, workers face the risk of tripping and falling. Trip-and-fall accidents can cause severe injuries, especially when a person falls to a lower level.

Saw Injuries

Power saws and even hand saws pose a significant safety risk on construction sites. Improper use of a saw can cause deep cuts and even amputation of fingers and limbs. Eye injuries are another risk when ungaurded blades eject material. Defective designs or inadequate safety equipment can make saws especially dangerous.

Falling Objects

People working on lower levels are at risk of suffering catastrophic injuries when tools, building supplies, or other objects fall from above. Contractors in charge of work sites should take measures to prevent objects from falling. Tragic accidents can result when they fail to do so. 

Scaffolding Accidents

The New York Scaffold Law protects workers who fall or are struck by falling objects. Construction company owners and contractors must provide safety equipment and take steps to ensure a safe working environment.  

Crane Accidents

Cranes are essential but dangerous to operate. A mishap can result in accidents that can be deadly and lead to permanently disabling injuries to both workers and pedestrians nearby.


Electrical wiring and machinery are abundant on work sites. If an electrocution injury was due to someone else’s negligent actions, you may be able to file a lawsuit for compensation.

What Our Clients Have to Say

“I am a union construction worker injured on the erection of a high-rise building in Manhattan back in 2016. After the accident, I knew I was going to need legal representation. I found The Perecman Firm online and learned that they handle both Workers’ Comp and 3rd Party cases in-house which I liked. I decided to send a message thru the live chat on their website. I explained the details of my situation, and the first thing the following morning I received a call from Zach Perecman. I was treated like family. I knew I had someone who wanted to fight for me and get me thru the tough times ahead, and that is exactly what they did. They made sure I was paid my workers’ comp checks on time. All of my doctor appointments were taken care of. My surgery, therapy, medications, everything was perfect! I can honestly say we didn’t run into one problem (at least that I know about) not to mention the results of my case. They are an amazing team over at The Perecman Firm.”

– Pat R.

“My name is Jose. I was a carpenter working at the One Trade Center when the brace I secured myself with fell apart, causing me to fall 14 feet to a plywood floor, injuring my lower back, fracturing my left foot and hitting my head causing me a mild TBI. David Perecman took my case and was there every step of the way. Whenever I had a question about my case, he was there to answer it. He made a difference for me and my family I really recommend The Perecman Firm to anyone. He did a great job on my accident case; he’ll do the same for you.”

– Jose J. | Bronx, NY
