Chelsea Manocchi defends complex liability claims for clients across a range of businesses and industries, and in matters involving automobile and premises liability, construction accidents, and more. Her wide-ranging legal background also includes workers’ compensation litigation and in-house experience with one of the country’s largest life insurers.
Chelsea’s successful October 2018 motion to dismiss an injured construction worker’s six-figure claim against an insurer averted a trial informed by New York State’s Scaffold Law, which makes construction companies 100 percent liable for injuries caused by falls or falling objects.
