Common Causes of Construction and Workplace Accidents

There is no doubt that construction work is the pillar of our cities’ physical structures and beauty. But like any sector relying on physical labor, building & construction workers are vulnerable to various occupational hazards.  

Despite these hazards, construction sites can be kept safe and protected with routine safety inspections. However, not all construction companies follow the required safety rules, which can create unsafe worker areas that put the safety and health of workers and visitors, at risk.

This firm operates with integrity and came through for my family. Evan and his staff provided constant communication, keeping us up to date throughout the entire process... and most importantly they kept every promise they made to us. My grandfather was retired for many years when he was injured at a supermarket. Evan is not only a phenomenal litigator. him and his staff are also wam, caring and compassionate. They fouht hard for my Grandfather to get him more money that expected and they delivered.

My mom was struck by yellow taxi back in 2016, she was severely injured. I had the good fortune of being referred to Evan Ross by an acquaintance who had been represented by him in an auto accident. I am happy to say that my mom's case settled recently for much more than we expected and she did not even have to appear in court. We are very grateful to the staff and to Mr. Ross for his unwavering support during this very troubling period. I highly recommend this firm.

Rachel J.

As a defense attorney I have had the privilege of opposing Evan many times in the past 20 years. I can say with certainty he has the rare ability to be a formidable adversary and a zealot advocate for his injured clients while still practicing law like a gentleman. That combination has allowed him to obtain the highest verdicts and settlements possible for his clients.

G. F.

My family has used Evan for as long as I can remember. He is one of the best personal injury attorneys we have came across. I cannot recommend Evan more. He is kind, caring, and compassionate with me every time; his attention to detail and response times with updates on my cases always left me feeling impressed. Thank you Evan!
