New York construction site accidents

Workers on New York construction sites have hazardous jobs that often involve dealing with working at great heights and with dangerous machinery, among other risks. Many of them suffer serious injuries as a result. If you have been injured in a construction accident, you might wonder what rights you have.

Some workers are injured in falls from scaffolding or equipment. Others are injured in machinery accidents or by defective equipment. Some workers suffer burns from electrical equipment while others are injured in trench collapses. No matter how you were injured, you might be able to hold the responsible parties liable to pay damages to you for your losses.

You will need to investigate your accident in order to identify all of the parties who hold responsibility. You may need to get the help of an investigator in order to do so. You may also be able to file a workers' compensation claim against your employer. If a third-party also held responsibility, you might be able to file a separate personal injury claim as well. By identifying all of the responsible parties, you may be able to maximize the amount of compensation that you recover.

At our law firm, our attorneys are experienced with helping injured construction workers to recover the maximum possible amounts for their injuries. The attorneys fully investigate each client's claim in order to identify all of the possible defendants and the types of available claims. In some cases, we are able to negotiate settlements that fairly compensate our clients, although some circumstances dictate proceeding to jury trials.
