Throughout the borough of Queens and the city of New York, one seems to find a construction site on nearly every street corner. Unfortunately, each construction site represents a potential hazard to both the people working on the site as well as to bystanders and passersby. No matter how strict the adherence to safety precautions, even a moment of negligence or recklessness can cause a serious construction accident.

At Proner & Proner, our Bayside construction accident lawyers will help you pursue compensation for your injuries and damages no matter the circumstances of your construction accident. If you are a construction worker who was injured on the job, we can guide you through the process of filing a workers’ compensation claim and work to make sure that your employer pays you the medical benefits and disability payments that you are entitled to. However, if you were injured by a third party’s negligence or recklessness, or by defective machinery, equipment, or materials, we can help you pursue a personal injury claim to recover compensation that isn’t available under workers’ compensation benefits. Of course, if you were an innocent bystander who was injured by a construction accident, we can pursue a personal injury claim on your behalf against those parties who may bear legal responsibility for the accident, such as the construction company or the property owner.

We will always conduct a thorough investigation of your accident to determine what legal claims you may have available to you.

Bayside is a neighborhood of Queens, one of the five boroughs of New York City, NY. Bounded by the East River and Long Island Sound to the north, and by Nassau County, Long Island to the east, Bayside has been ranked by several publications as one of the most expensive housing markets in the county, given the neighborhood’s large number of detached single-family homes. Originally a farming community during the 19th century, Bayside began developing its suburban character due in large part to the burgeoning movie industry in nearby Astoria, with many movie stars building homes in Bayside. Development continued through the 20th century with the establishment of a LIRR station that takes residents directly into Manhattan.
There may be multiple parties who are responsible or who may share liability for a construction accident, including contractors, subcontractors, individual construction workers, owners of the property where the construction site is located, architects/engineers, and manufacturers of defective or dangerous equipment or materials used on a construction site.
If you have been injured in a construction accident, you may be entitled to compensation for the costs of medical treatment and rehabilitation and therapy for your injuries. If you receive workers’ compensation benefits, you may be entitled to partial wage replacement for time missed from work, or disability payments if your injuries keep you from earning your pre-accident level of income. If you are able to file a third-party personal injury claim, you can seek full compensation for your lost wages or income and lost earning capacity, as well as damages for pain and suffering and lost quality of life.
