Established New York Law Firm Assists Injured Construction Workers
Proven attorneys handle accident cases stemming from building and repair projects
Construction work is a dangerous occupation and those who do it often have little say as to how a project is run. The worksite becomes even more hazardous when employers or other parties fail to provide the necessary safeguards. If you’ve sustained an injury in a New York City construction accident, you can count on the talented team at Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP. We have a long track record of successfully representing clients from around the world. Our firm can provide the legal guidance you need to make informed decisions and vigorously pursue compensation for the harm you’ve suffered.
Dedicated lawyers handle all types of construction accident cases
There are dozens of ways that workers can sustain injuries on construction sites. Our law firm assists individuals hurt in all types of construction accidents, such as those involving:
- Scaffold failures
- Crane accidents
- Trench collapses
- Forklift accidents
Construction accidents can severely harm laborers, potentially causing permanent disability, disfigurement or death. Our attorneys understand that the aftermath of an accident can be a chaotic time. We’ll help you identify avenues for securing compensation so that you can focus on your health.
Advocates help immigrants and other clients get compensation for medical costs
So much of the construction industry in our area is powered by immigrants. It’s important to remember that New York law recognizes that all injured construction workers deserve access to workers’ compensation, and does not consider immigration status in determining eligibility. If your employer is required to provide workers’ comp, our law firm can help you with your claim. We will serve as tireless advocates on your behalf to help ensure you receive adequate compensation for your medical expenses and lost wages.
Experienced attorneys seek to hold negligent parties responsible for on-site injuries
After some construction accidents, injured individuals can file for personal injury damages that go beyond the reimbursement for medical costs and lost income available under workers’ comp. Our attorneys will carefully evaluate your claim to determine if you could have the basis for a lawsuit due to:
- Third-party negligence — When someone besides your employer or a co-worker acts carelessly and contributes to your injury, such as a negligent equipment operator, our firm takes action to hold them accountable.
- Intentional employer conduct — If an employer’s intentional or egregious conduct caused the accident, we can file a lawsuit to hold your employer liable.
- Defective product — Injuries on construction sites are often caused by defective products, such as faulty power tools. We may file a lawsuit against the manufacturer responsible for your accident.
- Toxic substance — Illnesses caused by toxic substances used in construction projects might allow employees to circumvent workers’ compensation and file a lawsuit against their employer who used the material on site.
You deserve fair reimbursement for your losses and our law firm can help you collect it. Our counselors are energetic advocates for the rights of construction workers.
