Brooklyn Construction Accident Lawyers
After a construction incident, medical bills and lost wages can strain your finances. While industry and state laws are in place to help injured workers recover, insurance companies continue to deny accident claims or offer payouts that do not cover the extent of your losses.
If you were injured at a construction site, an experienced construction accident attorney in Brooklyn will make sure you receive the financial compensation your injuries and damages merit. Our team of knowledgeable attorneys is prepared to fight for your rights and hold liable property owners, construction managers, general contractors, and subcontractors accountable for your damages.
Our Attorneys Secure Compensation After a Construction Accident
Our law firm recognizes the construction industry is one of the most dangerous fields for workers. Industrial Safety & Hygiene News (ISHN) lists construction as one of America’s top 25 most dangerous jobs.
With that in mind, our team takes construction accident claims seriously. We start with a free consultation to review your claim and assess what occurred. From there, our attorneys work tirelessly to identify liable parties, hold them accountable, and pursue fair compensation for your injuries and damages.
Our strategy is to build a strong construction accident claim on your behalf. We do this by:
- Investigating the facts of your accident
- Obtaining official incident and accident reports
- Collecting video surveillance and photographs from the accident scene
- Gathering hospital and medical records to prove the extent of your injuries
- Standing up to insurance companies or negligent parties to ensure a fair settlement
- Preparing your case for trial
We Obtain the Settlement You Deserve
Construction accidents can result in serious injuries, and we devote ourselves to getting our clients the compensation to which they are entitled. Examples of our previous New York accident cases and the settlements we have obtained for our clients include:
- $3.5 million for a construction worker who experienced head trauma after falling from scaffolding
- $2.25 million for a construction worker who sustained knee and facial injuries after slipping off a ladder
- $1.3 million for a construction worker who suffered back injuries after falling through a hole in scaffolding
We have worked diligently on behalf of various construction accident victims throughout Brooklyn, and we are ready to add your case to our long list of successful settlements and verdicts.
Property Owners and Contractors Must Provide a Safe Place for Workers in Brooklyn
New York has labor laws in place to protect construction workers while on the job. When property owners, construction managers, and contractors ignore these laws, accidents occur.
Section 200 of New York’s Labor Laws (LAB) states that employers have a general duty to protect their employees by ensuring a safe work environment. Employers do this by providing:
- Protective gear to shield workers from falls, crushings, and other site incidents
- Adequate and well-maintained scaffolding equipment and ladders
- Proper and adequate safety harnesses and lifelines
- Face coverings, helmets, and eye protection gear
- Safeguards to prevent electric shock or industrial radiation
- Proper safety training
Property owners and contractors who fail to maintain a safe construction site are liable for any resultant accident. Our legal team makes sure that if a property owner or contractor’s carelessness caused your injuries, they are held accountable.
We File Wrongful Death Claims for Fatal Brooklyn Construction Accidents
The 2019 Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) found that a worker died every 99 minutes from a work-related injury. If you lost a loved one due to a construction site accident, our attorneys will file a wrongful death claim on their behalf.
Our attorneys investigate the accident and seek a recovery that compensates the deceased’s family for their trauma, grief, and loss. We strive to collect damages that include:
- Loss of parental guidance and support
- Medical expenses for the deceased before death
- Funeral and burial costs
- Lost income and benefits
- Loss of consortium
Handling the passing of a loved one after a construction accident is harrowing, but our personal injury lawyers can handle the litigation process on your behalf. We take on your wrongful death claim so you can concentrate on healing from your trauma.
