This practice area has the following sub practice areas:

  • Construction Defects
  • Industrial Accidents
  • New York Labor Law
  • OSHA Violations

Construction projects often present serious and complex claims, ranging from catastrophic personal injuries to multi-million dollar property claims. Kiernan Trebach’s attorneys handle these claims in a skilled and cost effective manner because of their experience handling claims involving contracts, product liability, architects and engineers, toxic tort and insurance and their understanding as to how these issues affect a construction claim. Further, our familiarity with OSHA and other regulatory standards, as well as how those standards impact the construction case, allows us to provide our clients with a knowledgeable and efficient defense of their construction and construction defect claims.

Our approach to resolution of construction claims is often most successful when our attorneys are engaged early in the process, facilitating our ability to provide a thorough and accurate investigation and claim analysis, shielded by privilege. It also allows us to explore pre-litigation resolution, monitor the remediation process, and mitigate potential damages.

Kiernan Trebach attorneys are at the forefront of significant, building-related cases involving defects in the design of major commercial structures, defective building materials, or deficient techniques in construction and remediation, often leading to issues related to mold, toxic exposure, and resultant bodily injury. Kiernan Trebach’s practice areas often overlap and complement each other, for example, in cases where construction defects involve indoor environmental issues.

Our clients include design professionals, general contractors, construction site owners, landowners and developers, construction materials manufacturers, and subcontractors in every trade. Kiernan Trebach has developed a deep bench of engineering, construction and design experts that enable us to provide superior defense of claims involving complex technical issues.
