Long Island Construction Accident Lawyers
Even with the continued advances in workplace safety, construction work still can be very dangerous. This is especially true when work needs to be done in high places. Construction accidents can involve serious and potentially life-threatening injuries. Serious injuries can have a lifelong impact on your health and ability to perform your activities of daily living. When you’re injured while on a construction site, it’s important to contact an experienced construction accident attorney for advice.
Even if you don’t experience immediate pain after your injury, there could be underlying issues that don’t always present themselves right away. Schedule a free consultation with our long island construction accident lawyers to understand your rights and learn what to do if you’ve been involved in a construction accident in New York. Many of the most common accidents on construction sites involve:
- Falling debris, material or equipment
The special nature of the danger posed by working at height has been recognized by laws such as Labor Law Section 240 which covers responsibility for accidents involving ladders and scaffolding. Our construction accident attorneys also assist construction workers who were injured in all other types of worksite accidents such as:
- Heavy equipment accidents
- Nail gun accidents
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Trench collapses
- Crane accidents
While most accidents that happen on construction sites can be resolved exclusively through the workers’ compensation system, some may involve third parties. Our Long Island construction accident lawyers assist injured construction workers with all manner of third-party claims.
What Is A Third-Party Claim?
Apart from workers’ compensation, injured workers can pursue compensation from outside parties who may have caused their injuries. If, for example, you were injured while driving for work, the other driver would be known as a third party. You could pursue compensation through a workers’ compensation claim and through a lawsuit against the driver.
