Top-Notch Personal Injury Litigation
At Block O’Toole & Murphy, we limit the number of cases we take so that each client receives individualized attention and focused personal injury litigation on their case. Personal injury cases can be very complex. There are a number of federal, state-wide, and local laws that may apply to each instance, and multiple defendants may be held liable. If you’ve been a victim of negligence, it’s important to understand your legal rights.
In a personal injury lawsuit, the Plaintiff’s lawyer must establish that another party is legally responsible for the Plaintiff’s injuries. This includes analyzing evidence such as police reports, video evidence, any photos, eyewitness reports, medical records, and more. Our law firm consults with top experts in their fields and is willing and able to invest in funds to help our clients win their cases. This means hiring traffic experts to recreate the car crash scene, doctors to better comprehend the lifetime repercussions of the Plaintiff’s injuries, and much more.
Our law firm works on a contingency basis. We don’t get paid unless we recover compensation for our clients.

Minority Workers More Likely to Be Exploited in the Construction Industry
Unfortunately, in certain instances where laborers are injured on the job, it is due to the willful disregard for work site safety on the part of the subcontractor, general contractor, building owner, or other third party. This is especially prevalent in the construction industry where minority workers are more likely to fall victim to wage theft and unsafe work conditions. This is an extremely egregious practice, and no one should have to risk their lives in order to earn a living.
The attorneys at Block O’Toole & Murphy are avid supporters of worker rights in New York and have devoted their careers to fighting for the rights of injury victims. Many of them are active members of NYSTLA’s (New York State Trial Lawyers Association) Labor Law Committee, a group that advocates for worker rights in New York State. Partner Daniel O’Toole serves as the Co-Chairman of the committee.
We believe all workers have the right to safety despite immigration status. Our law firm has recovered a number of top verdicts and settlements for undocumented workers, including a $5,885,000 jury verdict for an undocumented worker who was injured on a construction site in Queens, New York.
