Many third-party contractors are hired to work on construction projects. Construction work sites can be extremely dangerous, because not all companies comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and/or other industry standards that are designed to keep workers safe.
When accidents involving negligence on the part of these contractors occur, they can be held financially liable for any resulting injuries. In some cases, initial medical costs and lost wages are covered under your employer’s workers’ compensation coverage, but this will not be sufficient to cover the cost of any future medical treatment, disability, and pain and suffering.
Our skilled attorneys begin our cases with a thorough case evaluation to determine if there was negligence, such as poor job site management or safety violations, which led to our client’s injury. We also consult life care planners, physical therapists, and medical economists to determine the true financial impact of an injury. We are focused on handling our clients’ legal matters, so they can focus on recovering from their injuries. Throughout the settlement of our clients’ cases, they are updated regularly regarding any developments, and our attorneys respond promptly to all e-mail and phone inquiries.
Our lawyers hold negligent third parties liable, and we have obtained maximum recoveries for hundreds of injured New York construction site workers.
