Construction accidents can often lead to serious injuries that have a negative impact on the worker for a long time. In some cases, they may suffer a lifelong disability that prevents them from working again. This means they have to deal with the physical limitations, but they’ll also have to work out the financial impacts.
One thing that makes some construction worker injury cases complex is that the worker might not be limited to only filling for workers’ compensation to cover the damages of their case. Instead, there are also times when they might be able to file a lawsuit against a third party.
The circumstances surrounding the accident are what determine what’s possible. Two primary types of accidents lead to third-party claims. These are scaffolding accidents, which are covered under New York’s Labor Law 240, and defective product claims.
We’re here to evaluate your case and let you know the options you have. The bottom line is that you shouldn’t be held financially liable for an accident that happens at work. We can help you assert your rights.
It’s imperative that we get started as quickly as possible after the accident. There are strict time limits in these cases, but there’s also the matter of being able to collect and preserve valuable evidence. We want you to get what’s due to you, so we need time to consider the damages you’ve already experienced. We also need to attempt to determine what future damages you might incur, so starting as soon as possible after your injury gives us a chance to do this.
