Have You Or A Loved One Been Injured In A Construction Site Accident?
Construction sites can be a cacophony of deafening mechanical equipment, jackhammers pounding, diesel trucks zooming by and other heavy-duty machinery. While the goal at every construction site is safety first, the hectic atmosphere may seem more like “safety last,” especially when hundreds of accident injuries occur on construction sites daily involving:
- Ladder falls and scaffolding failures
- 18-wheeler haulers and flatbed delivery trucks
- Concrete mixers
- Explosions and fires
- Mechanical failures
- Toxic chemical exposure
- Falling objects
New York’s labor laws – in particular, sections 200, 240 and 241 – provide protection for construction site workers. When you or a loved one has injuries sustained on a construction site, workers’ compensation may not be enough to cover your expenses. Speak with an experienced attorney right away to discuss your legal options for pursuing compensation from negligent third parties to get money damages for medical bills, lost and future wages, and pain and suffering. If you have lost a loved one, no amount of monetary compensation will bring back your loved one, but we can help you establish peace of mind regarding your future financial stability.
We Take Select Construction Site Accident Injury Cases
Our trial lawyers limit the number of cases we accept so we can devote the time and resources necessary to each client we do work with. Construction site accidents often involve several negligent parties liable for your injuries or the death of your loved one on the job site. In preparing each case as though our attorneys are going to court, we investigate the accident, speak with the witnesses, gather and organize medical records and information, and arrange for expert witnesses to investigate and testify on your behalf.
Pursuant to New York’s laws, we pursue all possible negligent parties, including mechanical and equipment manufacturers.
