Most people walk around Brooklyn every day, past hundreds of buildings, and don’t even consider the hard work and physical energy that it took for those structures to go up. But at Lipsig, Shapey, Manus, & Moverman, P.C., we know how difficult and energy consuming the jobs that construction workers do are and we are also fully aware of the dangers associated with those jobs.
In fact, our firm has represented hundreds of clients who were seriously hurt while working a construction job and all because of someone else’s negligence.
In each case, we assisted the client by dealing with the legal paperwork, reviewing the accident and determining who was at fault, collecting evidence, interviewing witnesses, and then either carefully negotiating a settlement or fighting for them in court.
Our goal is always to obtain the best outcome possible for the client and we believe our long history of multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements speak to our dedication to achieving this goal.

Rated By Super Lawyers
It doesn’t matter if it’s a truck, car, or bus accident – the victim’s of these accidents can sustain substantial harm and the sad reality is that often, the state minimum’s for medical coverage under auto insurance isn’t enough to pay for all of the medical bills of those involved.
This forces many car accident victims to file an auto accident lawsuit, simply so that they can obtain compensation for their losses. Compensation may cover:
- past and future medical expenses
- lost earnings
- physical pain and suffering
- emotional trauma
In cases where the victim died because of their injuries, their loved ones may be able to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit on their behalf.
Our lawyers are ready to take on both the negligent drivers and insurance companies to make sure that none of our clients are left financially struggling and unable to get the medical care they need because of someone else’s mistake.

Passionate and Dedicated Attorneys
Brooklyn residents and workers are hurt in accidents that shouldn’t have happened every single day. In some cases, a defective product caused the injured worker harm, and in others, another person’s negligence did. Whatever the cause, the victims are left with serious injuries that could cost them hundreds of thousands of dollars to treat.
While workers’ compensation may help to pay for some of their losses, it’s wise to have an experienced attorney review the case to determine if they are also eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit which could cover all of their losses.
