Queens Construction Accident Lawyer

Seeking Compensation After Your Construction Accident

It is no secret that construction zones can be dangerous places. Lots of heavy equipment, power tools and moving parts make these areas a constantly shifting hazard to anyone in the area. Despite this, there are laws in place that hold employers responsible for ensuring that these environments are as safe as possible. Failing to do this can cause employees to experience catastrophic injuries.

Here at Grauman Law P.C., we know the cost of a construction accident injury. We take it upon ourselves to provide you with injury compensation that accurately reflects the costs of your damages. Our New York attorneys have years of experience fighting for the best possible outcomes for our clients, and we are eager to help you, too.

Types Of Construction Accidents

There are many different ways that someone can suffer a significant injury on a work site, many of which are your employer’s responsibility to prevent. Common examples of these injuries include:

  • Safety violations
  • Defective safety equipment
  • Improper scaffolding that results in falls
  • Insufficient training
  • Mechanical hazards
  • Exposure to hazardous substances

Injuries sustained from these accidents can include:

  • Amputations
  • Blindness
  • Deafness
  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Coma
  • Concussions
  • Paralysis
  • Severed spinal cord
  • Traumatic brain injury

No matter what kind of injury it is that you have sustained, do not rely on the insurance process to give you the compensation you deserve. Insurers have a reputation for offering lowball settlements while trying to convince victims not to seek an attorney. Let us help you identify your total injury costs and fight to maximize your compensation.

The Representation You Need

You deserve a personal injury lawyer who not only knows how to earn the compensation you need but is also compassionate enough about your cause to see it happen.

If you are ready to meet with an attorney you can trust to represent your best interests, contact us today. Schedule your initial consultation by calling 718-554-1616 or emailing us here. We look forward to earning the opportunity to represent you.

Construction Companies Have a Duty to Uphold Safety Regulations

Conditions are continuously changing on construction sites. Employees, inspectors, and subcontractors must navigate these changing and hazardous conditions, all while trying to ensure the successful completion of the project and avoid a costly mistake. If construction companies fail to follow OSHA-mandates and other safety regulations, workers can become seriously injured or die.

Construction companies must ensure workers wear proper safety equipment, maintain appropriate scaffolding and guardrails, and warn of hazardous chemicals on site. The Occupation Safety and Health Act of 1970 also maintains that employers owe general duties that include:

  • Providing a workplace free of hazards that can result in injury or death
  • Ensuring that employees have access to equipment that can prevent injury or death
  • Ensuring all practices of one’s own construction company are in compliance with standards of the construction industry

Multiple Parties May Be Liable For A Construction Accident

Since these kinds of accidents can arise from various factors, different parties may be liable. Parties who could potentially be legally responsible for occupational injuries and the subsequent medical costs include:

  • Construction Companies
  • General, sub and prime contractors
  • Property Owners
  • Architects
  • Engineers
  • Insurance companies

In many cases, workers can recover damages for their injuries.

In many cases, workers can recover damages for their injuries from partially or completely responsible parties, even if they are not their employer. If a worker is hurt due to factors other than job safety, such as defective tools or equipment, the injured worker may be able to file a personal injury claim against the manufacturer. The responsible party may be held liable for damages, including medical bills, loss of wages, and pain and suffering.

It is imperative that you collect as much information as you can about the accident to determine the legally responsible party. The longer you wait to contact a New York construction accident lawyer, the harder it is to piece the events together. The lawyers at Grauman Law have a track record of success in maximizing injured workers’ recovery compensation.

What can I do to protect my rights?

If you have been injured as a result of an accident at a construction site, there are a number of things you can do to protect yourself and your legal rights:

  • Get medical attention for your injuries.
  • Report the injury to your employer and/or construction site manager, and note the name and position of the person notified.
  • Get the names and contact information of anyone who may have witnessed the accident.
  • If possible, try to preserve any evidence related to your injury by taking photographs of the area where you were injured (and the injuries themselves) and keeping the equipment or tool that was involved in your injury.
