Construction sites are among some of the most dangerous workplaces in America. Not only do they pose a serious risk of injury to the workers on site, but even visitors to the site, innocent bystanders, or passersby can be injured when an accident happens on a construction side. A construction accident can leave its victims with catastrophic, life-altering injuries that a person may never fully recover from. A victim of a construction accident may also have to face the prospect of massive medical bills, all while he or she is out of work and unable to earn a living to pay those bills or support himself or herself and his or her family.

Arverne is a neighborhood in the borough of Queens, New York City, New York. The neighborhood was originally developed by lawyer and real estate developer Remington Vernam, whose signature of “R. Vernam” inspired the neighborhood’s name. Arverne became a popular beachside community for city residents during the 1910s and 1920s, with hotels and residences and boardwalk attractions for families of all income levels. After several false starts during the latter half of the 20th century, Avrerne underwent redevelopment and revitalization as a residential neighborhood and waterfront destination.
Most construction accident claims get resolved without needing to go to court or to trial. If you are a construction worker injured in an accident on the job, you are likely entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, which your employer is obligated to pay regardless of who was at fault for your accident and injuries. If you have a third-party negligence or product liability claim for your construction accident, we can also pursue a negotiated settlement that provides you with fair and full compensation for your claim.
Most construction accident attorneys work on a “contingency fee” basis, which means that the attorney isn’t paid unless and until he or she recovers compensation for the client. The attorney’s fee is usually a percentage of the client’s total compensation award; for workers’ compensation, a workers’ compensation judge will set the attorney’s fee, while for third-party personal injury claims the attorney and client will agree in advance on the percentage. The benefit to this arrangement is that the client does not have to pay money up front and does not bear the risk of having to pay an attorney if he or she loses the case.
