Although construction sites are necessary for development and progress, they also represent some of the most dangerous places to work. Construction sites even pose risks of injury to those who happen to be on site or are just passing by. With heavy machinery and equipment, unstable structures, and hazardous materials on site, a construction accident can easily result in catastrophic, life-altering injuries for a victim. Even if a construction accident victim can manage to make a full recovery or near-full recovery from a construction accident, he or she may still face significant medical bills and financial difficulties due to time lost from work.

Breezy Point is a neighborhood located in the borough of Queens in New York City, New York. Breezy Point is located on the western end of Rockaway Peninsula, bordered by Rockaway Inlet and Jamaica Bay to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the south. The neighborhood was originally established as a community of summer beach bungalows, until the residents of the area purchased the land to establish a private community. One of the lesser urbanized neighborhoods of New York City, Breezy Point is managed by the Breezy Point Cooperative, in which residents contribute to maintenance, security, and other costs involved in keeping the community private; the cooperative owns the community, while residents own their homes and shares in the cooperative.
Potentially yes.Although an injured worker may not file a personal injury claim against his or her employer for a work-related injury and is instead limited to filing a workers’ compensation claim, the worker may be entitled to go outside the workers’ compensation system if his or her injury is due to the employer’s reckless or intentional conduct. In addition, if your construction accident was caused by a third party’s negligence, recklessness, or other legal fault, you may be entitled to pursue a personal injury claim against that party in addition to your workers’ compensation claim.
Under New York law, you have 30 days from the date of your accident to report your accident to your employer, and up to two years to file a claim for workers’ compensation if your accident causes you to suffer injury or damages. If you can file a third-party personal injury claim for your construction accident, you have three years from the date of your construction accident to file a lawsuit for compensation.
