Construction Accident Lawyers in New York City

Providing Help to Injured Construction Workers

Because it is their job to operate dangerous equipment, lift large or heavy objects, and work high off the ground, construction workers are at increased risk for on-the-job injuries. However, proper safety precautions and practices can prevent a construction accident injury and should be observed at job sites. Failure to instate such preventive measures is not only dangerous, but also illegal. If you have been injured in a construction accident, our construction accident injury attorneys serving New York City, the five boroughs and  all of New York.

Construction Site Accidents and Injuries

If someone negligently causes a preventable construction accident leading to an injury, that individual and the company that he or she works for can be held legally liable. In the event a foreman does not enforce state, federal, and local safety laws among his or her workers, the foreman and the company are accountable for any injuries. Even defective equipment used at the construction site can be dangerous, causing serious accidents and injuries and even, tragically, wrongful death.

In the event of equipment malfunction, the construction accident injury attorneys at our New York City law firm can investigate the liability of the manufacturer of that equipment. Responsible parties may be required to compensate the injured victim for their medical bills, lost wages, and possibly pain and suffering.

Legal Action after a Construction Site Accident

The physical pain and suffering of the injured individual and the strain that suffering places on his or her family warrants that legal action be taken against the responsible party. After receiving medical attention, retaining an experienced construction accident attorney from a reputable personal injury firm should be the victim’s next move. A construction accident injury can keep victims from returning to work, which can halt financial income and important job benefits. Additionally, serious injuries can temporarily diminish quality of life and in some cases change one’s life forever. If you or a loved one has been injured on the jobsite, contacting our construction accident injury attorneys in New York City should be your next step.
