Construction Accident Lawyers
The Bronx is a place where things are being built. It is difficult to go more than a few blocks before you see scaffolding for new construction or the refurbishment of one of the great old buildings in the Bronx. With all that activity comes a lot of dangerous construction zones.
Indeed, the combination of heavy machinery, workers using powerful construction equipment, and disrupted sidewalks and roadways, accidents can easily happen. Of course, construction workers understand the risks of working in a construction zone, yet oftentimes proper precautions are forgotten, and people get hurt.
At Siler & Ingber, we have handled countless construction accident injuries for victims who are both workers and passing pedestrians. Just to give a few examples, we obtained a $2.5 million settlement for a 48-year-old construction worker who was catastrophically injured after falling from a height on the job and tried a construction accident case to a $1.1 million verdict for a worker who was struck by a pallet jack while at work.
New York Labor Laws were written to benefit the workers, not the construction companies. We know how to marshal the proper resources to negotiate a settlement that will appropriately compensation you for your injuries. And, of course, we have phenomenal trial experience, successfully handling many construction accident cases.
Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
Those most vulnerable to car, truck, or construction accidents are pedestrians. While motorists have the protection of their vehicle when accidents happen, pedestrians have no protection from injury. In the Bronx, 1,384 pedestrians were injured in accidents in 2017 and 9 were killed. The numbers for 2016 were very much the same, 1,359 injured and 14 killed.
Our team of pedestrian accident attorneys at Siler & Ingber are experts in this sometimes-confusing area of personal injury law. With highly specific fact patterns, injuries involving pedestrian victims require a special kind of investigative skill to get to all the facts of the case.
Because our team goes the extra mile on our investigations, we are able to aggressively push back against insurance companies who are often unwilling to pay a victim’s necessary compensation. That is also why Siler & Ingber attorneys are able to control in-depth settlement negotiations and obtain winning verdicts against negligent Bronx drivers. Call us at 877-718-6079 to learn more about how we can help you.
Bicycle Accident Attorneys

In the Bronx, an average of 300 cyclists are injured and 1 to 2 are killed every year in bicycle accidents. Indeed, the introduction of the Citibike program has resulted in a spike in the number of bicycle accidents in all of the NYC boroughs since 2016.

Given the uptick in bicycle accidents in recent years, the kind of bicycle accident experience that Siler & Ingber attorneys have is in more and more demand.
