Construction Accidents in New York City | What You Need to Know

Construction workers, as you know, are among the hardest-working members of our society, and without construction workers, New York City as we know it would never have come to be. Unfortunately, construction workers are oftentimes injured due to unsafe site conditions, and if this has happened to you, you should continue reading and speak with our New York City personal injury lawyer to learn more about construction accidents and how we can help if you’ve been hurt in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of construction accidents?

Construction accidents can occur for a wide variety of reasons, and oftentimes, there are many potentially liable parties when someone is injured on a construction site. Defective equipment, negligent property conditions, negligent supervisors, and more can all cause construction accidents.

What should I do after being injured in a construction site accident?

After sustaining an injury while on the job, it is imperative that you notify your supervisor or employer of the accident as soon as possible–do so on the spot, if you can. From here, your supervisor or employer should call an ambulance to the scene. While you await the ambulance’s arrival, you should ask anyone who witnessed the incident for their contact information, and you should then take pictures of the unsafe conditions that caused your accident. Once you receive medical treatment, ask your doctor for a copy of all medical documentation/bills associated with your injury. Finally, ensure you retain the services of a knowledgeable New York City personal injury lawyer who can help prove your case.

What is a third-party claim in NYC?

If you were injured in a construction accident in New York City and workers’ compensation benefits did not cover the entirety of your injury, you should strongly consider hiring a New York City personal injury lawyer who can file a third-party claim on your behalf. In a third-party claim, we will sue a liable party who is not your employer for the full compensation you deserve and need to heal. For example, if you were injured due to unsafe property conditions, and the property owner knew or should have known about the unsafe conditions, failed to take action to fix them, and you were injured as a result, we can file a third-party claim against that property owner.
