Protecting your rights following a construction site accident

The construction industry is one that encompasses many risks. While this line of work is considered inherently dangerous in New York and elsewhere, some of these dangers stem from negligence in the workplace. When an employer fails to provide proper training or safety equipment, an employee is reckless, or a third-party fails to exercise proper care, a construction worker could suffer serious injuries or even death as a result of a construction accident.

Suffering an injury at a construction site can be a significant event. This is why the attorneys at Birbrower & Beldock, P.C. are focused on helping injured construction workers understand their rights when it comes to overcoming the obstacles caused by a construction accident.

Seeking workers' compensation benefits is the most common step taken by injured construction workers, as it provides them with the money needed to address certain losses, such as medical bills, rehabilitation, and lost wages. Our law firm takes the time to fully evaluate the situation so we can help our clients obtain the most favorable outcome. In maters where negligence or recklessness was the likely cause, we help our clients explore other options, such as a civil action to seek compensation for additional damages suffered.

Whether you suffered a fall injury, were harmed by construction equipment, or were hurt due to a fire, explosion, trench collapse, or unsafe worksite, our law firm takes the time to understand the cause of the incident. This information can then be used to establish what recourses an injured construction worker has and what options are most suitable for their situation.

The harm that befalls an injured worker or the surviving family members of a deceased worker can be extensive. Not only is there pain and suffering, but there is also financial damages related to lost wages, medical bills, and other costs arising from the incident. Thus, it is important that one explores their rights when it comes to recourses such as workers' compensation benefits and third-party personal injury claims.
