Why Should You Contact a Construction Accident Lawyer

Federal and New York State laws include safety regulations for construction sites in an attempt to keep employees safe. Even with these regulations accidents occur that result in injury or even death of construction workers. In 2013 the number of construction related deaths was 3 which was a significant drop from 8 in 2012. All three died due to lack of adequate fall protection. One was installing a steel beam at a Queens construction site, another worker fell from a scaffold in Manhattan and the third fell while doing work on a Brooklyn home. Three deaths is three too many and as the construction related accident statistics show, the number could have been higher. In 2013 an increase of construction related accidentswas observed at 186 compared to 176 in 2012. Construction related injuries increased to 195 in 2013 from 187 in 2012.

A worker who has been injured or disabled due to their employment should contact a construction accident lawyer who can help the victim and their family. Injured workers face the following issues:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages while the worker recovers
  • If partial or permanent disability occurs compensation will be required.
  • Costly career retaining may be required.

Why Should You Contact a Construction Accident Lawyer?

Insurance companies will downplay how serious your injuries are and will underestimate the amount of money you will need for medical procedures and for your future. An experienced construction accident lawyer will be able to evaluate your claims and damages and determine how much you will need now and in the future. In addition an experienced construction accident attorney can guide you to determine if you are entitled to damage from any other negligent parties. Often a jury verdict will provide a higher settlement for personal injury cases and an attorney can help you through the process of determining if there is negligence and going to trial if necessary.
