Construction Accidentspractice areas
We believe you have the right to a safe workplace without an unreasonable risk of injury. Construction site workers are at a higher risk of suffering workplace injuries than most other occupations. The costs associated with these construction site accidents can be overwhelming for the victim and their family members. They may pay for wages while off work, medical expenses, payment, and a lump sum based on your construction accident injury, but what about future costs and pain and suffering? As experienced Rego Park construction accident lawyers, we have represented construction workers in their personal injury cases. All these cases involved varying degrees of construction accident injuries sustained on active work sites.
Sometimes construction sites can cause injuries to passersby who are struck by falling debris, accidentally wander into an unsecured site or a site with insufficient notices, or suffer a motor vehicle accident connected to construction debris or vehicles. It is the construction company’s responsibility to thoroughly inspect each construction site alongside safety engineers. Your company must also provide safety programs and functional, appropriate safety gear for every worker. When these measures are not taken because of laziness or cutting corners to save money, the person or party responsible should pay.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, out of every 100 people employed in the construction industry, 6.3 will be injured and require recuperation away from work every year. Further, 11 out of 100,000 people will die on the job annually, and one in ten workers will be injured. This statistic reveals that construction is a dangerous industry. Whatever the financial consequences of your job-related injuries, your experienced construction accident lawyer will fight for your full compensation. Surviving families who might have lost loved ones in construction site fatalities can seek financial compensation through wrongful death lawsuits. We understand that there may be parties involved external to your employer, and we will dedicate our time to finding out the details. The construction company, property owner, contracting/subcontracting company and all other parties that may be responsible for your injuries will send their legal teams into action immediately. If you do not do the same, you cannot hope to be on a level playing field when it comes time to seek compensation for your medical bills and other damages.
