Our construction litigation team is OSHA-10 certified and handles everything from catastrophic building and crane collapses to routine cases involving falls from heights, falling objects and hoisting accidents.
Our team has extensive experience representing and vigorously defending well-known property owners, developers, property managers, contractors, construction managers, design professional and subcontractors against personal injury claims stemming from the New York State Labor Laws, including 200, 240 and 241, as well as construction defects. We routinely handle high-exposure cases involving wrongful death claims and significant body injuries. We work closely with our clients to not only defend these matters but to further educate them on litigation obstacles in construction accident claims. We also assist them with drafting comprehensive contracts and safety plans, as well as help them establish effective record-keeping practices that help reduce risk and potential exposure on future projects.
Our litigation approach includes pre-suit investigation and analysis, particularly on potential risk transfers. Our team handles cases from pre-suit through trial and appeals. We are frequently retained on high-profile cases and have a proven track record obtaining favorable results. We work closely with our clients to develop litigation action plans early in cases and believe that a team approach helps to ensure optimal results.
At Fullerton Beck, we are always mindful of litigation expenses and potential significant exposure in these types of claims, and as such, we work quickly to investigate claims and move them toward favorable resolutions. We believe having a strong partnership with our clients and their insurers has helped us achieve the excellent results we have obtained over the years and has led to a strong reputation in construction litigation defense.
