Causes of Construction Accidents

A construction accident in Baychester may relate back to any number of issues:

  • Improper safety practices of employer
  • Burns, electrocution, or explosion-related injury

Why Hire a Lawyer To Fight the Insurance Company?

Getting Compensated for Injuries While On The Job


Many workers assume their injuries are covered under workers’ compensation laws, but a third party may also be liable for your injuries. If other responsible parties (other than your employer) such as the property owner or general contractor failed to provide proper safety equipment or follow proper safety practices or equipment used at the construction site did not meet standards, you may be eligible for additional compensation.

Protecting Your Interests Following a Construction Site Injury


Though the claims process is often lengthy, there are steps you can take immediately following an accident to protect your rights to compensation:

  • Make note of relevant details. Think broken scaffolding, ripped harnesses, unsecured objects, etc.
  • Take the names and contact information of witnesses.
  • If you have your phone on you, take pictures of your injuries and surroundings.

All of these details can help strengthen your case in the event the insurer denies your claim.

The Stages of a Personal Injury Claim


After you meet with a member of our team, we will file the initial court papers on your behalf and respond to other answers, complaints or motions. We will then proceed to the discovery stage, in which we gather all available evidence to establish the facts of your case.

When it’s possible and makes sense, we can settle your case out of court for full value. However, if the third-party refuses to settle for a fair amount, we are ready to aggressively pursue a favorable outcome in court.

Construction Accident Questions?

We Have Answers


What are some of the common types of accidents?

Construction sites pose innumerable dangers to workers. However, accidents typically fall into four categories. Per OSHA, the top four are as follows:

  • Falls: Such as a fall from ladder or scaffold or through an opening.
  • Caught In-Between: Such as being crushed by equipment.
  • Struck-By: Such as a falling object/debris.
  • Electrocution.

 

Can I recover compensation beyond workers’ compensation?

Many employers will have you believe that workers’ compensation is the only means through which you can recover compensation following a construction accident. This is not true. Workers’ comp limits your recovery to medical bills, disability and lost income. However, our team can help you identify other liable parties and file a third-party lawsuit for the following types of damages:

  • Rehabilitation
  • PTSD
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional duress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium (if you lost a loved one in a construction accident)

Mistakes people make after an accident (don’t do these!)

Just as there are things you can do to strengthen your case, there are things you can do — or not do — to hurt your case. Below are the top four:

  • Not reporting your accident to your supervisor
  • Not seeking medical attention
  • Not reporting to and filing a claim with workers’ compensation
  • Not seeking the representation of an experienced New York personal injury lawyer

Your account of events and medical report can go a long way toward establishing negligence.
