Construction site accident victims and their families are not required to hire an attorney to file or fight their case but there are many reasons why you should. Our previous construction site accident victims and their families have found that there were many benefits to having legal representation throughout their case.

To Alleviate Stress
Hiring a lawyer gives victims the freedom to focus primarily on the future and their recovery instead of fighting a long and overwhelming legal battle.
Most victims are not experienced with navigating tedious legal details or building strong, persuasive cases. As a result, victims often find that hiring representation alleviates stress and that a reduced-stress environment is conducive to a speedier, more successful recovery.
To Help You Determine a “Fair” Settlement
An NYC construction accident lawyer can help you build a strong case that compensates you fairly and justly for all of your physical and emotional injuries. By working with a lawyer, you can feel confident that the amount you recover from a negligent party is the right amount given all of your injuries and the effect those injuries will have on your life in the future.
To Help You Fight Back Against the Other Parties in Your Case
A lawyer from our firm can take your case to trial and fight in court to get you what you deserve if the negligent party will not negotiate fairly. Often, injury victims who do not hire a lawyer are offered substantially less than the true value of the case. Our lawyers have been fighting for victims like you since 1988. Our advice to you is to always consider retaining a lawyer if you have been injured as the result of another’s negligence.
An attorney from our firm can provide advice and support to clients in those situations and may prevent victim intimidation attempts by the negligent party or parties.

We Can Help You File a Wrongful Death Claim
Unfortunately, not all construction site accident victims survive the injuries they suffer. If you lost a loved one this way, you deserve justice—not only for your family and yourself but also for your lost loved one, as well. Our firm has earned millions in damages for families who have lost someone as a result of negligence.
EPT §5-4.1 gives surviving family members the right to file wrongful death lawsuits on behalf of their lost loved ones. However, a wrongful death lawsuit must be filed within an applicable deadline. If you fail to file your claim by this deadline, you may be forever prevented from recovering the compensation you deserve.
How Long do You Have to File a Construction Accident Claim?
If you were injured in a construction accident in the state of New York, you generally have three years from the date of an accident to file your lawsuit. There are exceptions to this deadline, however.
While it is not a good idea not to settle your case too soon (before you truly understand the full extent of your injuries), and you must file your lawsuit before the statute of limitations has passed. After that point, you may permanently lose your right to file a claim. To discuss your rights, it is always a good idea to contact a lawyer immediately after a construction accident.
