Fighting For Maximum Compensation For Your Construction Accident Injury
New York construction workers face dangerous job conditions every day. They shouldn’t have to face additional dangers from unsafe work conditions and negligence, but they often do. Passersby are also injured at times on construction sites.
At Surdez & Perez P.C., we stand up for the rights of construction workers and others injured in Queens, Long Island and all five boroughs of New York City.
Our clients are hardworking New Yorkers who have suffered severe and life-altering injuries caused by:
- Scaffolding accidents
- Trench collapses
- Damaged walkways and sidewalks
- Ladder falls and other falls from heights
- Fires and explosions
- Falling objects such as girders, scaffolding and other construction materials and equipment
- Heavy equipment accidents
- Electric shocks and other serious injuries
Who Is Responsible For Your Construction Site Accident?
Construction site injuries to workers are generally covered by workers’ compensation, but there may be more compensation available to you — significantly more — than what workers’ comp provides. Additionally, if your accident was caused by a negligent third party, that is, not your employer or a fellow employee, you may pursue a personal injury claim in addition to any workers’ compensation benefits you may receive.
Accidents on or near construction sites also happen to passersby. These people may be able to pursue compensation from the construction company, city or others responsible for maintaining safe walkways.
Negligent parties may include careless drivers who collided with a construction vehicle, negligent contractors, manufacturers of defective machinery, and other parties wholly or partly responsible for your injury.
Personal injury law allows you to pursue compensation for pain and suffering, diminished quality of life and other damages not covered under New York workers’ compensation laws.
