CONSTRUCTION SITE ACCIDENTS

Construction site accidents are common in the work place. Thousands of construction workers are injured or worse killed in a construction site accident each year. Construction companies are responsible for inspecting each site with their safety engineers and provide safety programs, but unfortunately accidents are still occurring due to irresponsibility or inadequate provisions.

You should consult with a New York City construction accident attorney immediately after sustaining any serious work related injury.

Even if for no other reason than to have the workers compensation system explained in detail to you, so that you know the differences and what to expect from the process. There is a substantial likelihood that an insurance company will eventually challenge your right to workers compensation benefits, and the insurance company will begin preparing a litigation strategy to prevent you from receiving compensation from the time the adjuster opens your claim. It is vital for an injured worker to consult a New York construction accident lawyer as soon as possible, especially if the injuries are serious. It is always recommend that you talk with an attorney that has experience in workers compensation law. Do not talk to anyone else or make any statements until you have consulted an attorney for your own protection.

WHAT IS WORKERS COMPENSATION?

If you work on a construction site and have suffered any personal injuries due to negligence on the part of your employer you may be entitled to receive certain benefits through workers compensation. These usually include payments for medical bills, weekly benefits for each week you are unable to work and payment on a scheduled basis for you permanent injury.

Workers compensation awards tend to be modest since they are based on your passed earnings and there are no compensation for your pain and suffering. In addition, when you are receiving workers compensation you are not permitted to sue your employer for any other damages.

WHEN CAN I SUE FOR A CONSTRUCTION INJURY?

Construction workers can sue for damages. Like all other work place related injuries, construction workers can sue and recover an award against other people or companies for injuries sustained in the same accident. The companies that are generally sued are the owners of the project or general contractors for failure to provide a safe workplace. To make construction work safer, state law guidelines have been instituted to benefit the injured worker and put him or her in a favorable position to sue and recover damages. These laws require contractors, owners and their agents to provide safe scaffolds, hoists and other such structures for erecting, demolishing or repairing buildings. If an owner or general contractor fails to provide safe working conditions under these laws he should be held responsible for all injuries, especially if he exercises no supervision or control over the work being performed over the work site.

Kleinick Law begins investigating the owners, architects, insurance companies and manufactures of equipment. General contractors and all subcontractors are required to provide a reasonable and safe work site, which warn of hazards inherent to the site and work, hire careful co-workers, co-ordinate job safety provisions and supervise and comply with all safety specifications. Employers are responsible for the safe design and proper maintenance of their equipment and products in the workplace.

Defective or dangerous products can include: scaffolding, power tools, cranes, derricks, hoists, conveyers, ladders, winches, wood working tools, trucks, tractors, graters, scrapers, bulldozers, forklifts as well as many other types of construction equipment.

We here at Kleinick Law our New York Construction Accident Attorneys will use their years of experience in handling construction accident cases to investigate every possible factor that would cause your accident, and to ensure that you will receive full compensation for your injuries.
