Construction workers are subjected to dangerous conditions every day. They often work with heavy equipment and are required to work at great heights. When the proper safety precautions are not taken, the results can be disastrous.
If you or someone you care about was hurt in a construction accident in New York, you may need an experienced lawyer to help you get the financial compensation you need to cover medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
At the Law Offices of Barry M. Goldstein , I understand the dangers that construction workers face every day. I also understand the safety precautions that must be taken to avoid serious injuries. When those safety precautions are ignored, I will fight for the compensation that you are entitled to receive.
Seeking Compensation After a Construction Accident Such as a Scaffolding Fall
The first place to start after a construction accident is workers' compensation. Unfortunately, these benefits are not enough to make up for the pain and suffering many injured workers face, especially if you have suffered a burn injury from an electrocution or a broken pelvis or back injury from a scaffolding fall. After your free initial consultation, I will do everything possible to get the compensation you need, including:
- Investigate accident site
- Retain medical and industry experts
- Pursue all possible workers' compensation
- Interview witnesses
- Identify all potential sources for compensation
- Negotiate toward a fair settlement
- File lawsuit if necessary
As an experienced attorney, I have helped victims of construction accidents caused by inadequate safety measures, defective equipment, improper maintenance of saws, scaffolding or ladder falls and other dangerous conditions. We will pursue every source of compensation including the property owner, contractor, subcontractor, manufacturer of machinery and responsible parties.
