Construction site injuries can cause significant complications and limitations for workers. Unfortunately, many employees will be overwhelmed by pain, face pressure to return to work after an injury, and simply do not know their rights after an accident. For these reasons, it is vital that any injured construction worker speaks to an attorney as soon as possible.
How a Lawyer Can Help With Your Construction Accident Case
Our construction accident lawyers work hard to get you everything you are entitled to after an injury. We offer free, no-obligation consultations for construction accident victims, allowing you to learn your options and next steps at no cost to you.
An attorney can be beneficial to you and your family by:
- Maximizing your benefit payments. If you’ve been hurt on a New York construction site, you are likely owed workers’ compensation for your medical care and wage losses during your recovery. However, you will have to jump through a number of hoops to ensure your benefits are approved and continue until you are able to return to work. We can also determine if you are owed other forms of compensation as we investigate the facts of the claim.
- Acting on your behalf. Our attorneys can step in if you are facing employer retaliation or intimidation after an injury, deal with insurance companies and medical bill collectors, and prevent you from saying or doing anything to hurt your claim.
- Investigating negligence. Many construction accidents are caused by unsafe workplaces, defective equipment, or other preventable conditions. We can determine the exact cause of your injury and hold the responsible party liable for your suffering.
- Calculating and recovering your losses. An injury on the job can result in high medical expenses, lost income, ongoing treatment, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, and permanent disability. We carefully consider all of your past and future losses to get you an amount that will fairly compensate you for your accident.
Our construction injury attorneys will work to get you the compensation you are owed, and we do not collect any fees until after your case is won.
