What does a Construction Accident Attorney in the Bronx, do?
Here are the answers you can expect to get from us:
Your accident – Who is at fault for your accident?
Construction sites are in constant motion. Around the clock, construction workers, sub-contractors, utility company employees, union representatives, government agencies, and many other people work tirelessly to complete the project on time and under budget. What were the circumstances that led to your accident? Knowing this and the parties involved in creating them are crucial details in resolving your case.
The variety of adverse conditions that lead to construction site accidents can be many. While workers’ compensation benefits may cover expenses for injured construction workers, these situations are often complex and require careful investigation to get the facts straight. Our experienced legal professionals are uniquely qualified to expeditiously assess the state of affairs that led to your injury, help determine the parties responsible for contributing to it, and win that which you deserve.
Your accident – How do you communicate with the insurance companies?
Are there insurance companies to be held accountable for your construction accident? While an insurance company may reach out to you, you have no obligation to speak to them directly, answer their questions, or accept their offers of settlement. Often these offers are issued quickly before you have had time to assess the overall cost of your pain, suffering, and loss. These settlement offers can be far too low to properly cover medical, household, transportation, long-term care, and out-of-work/cost of living expenses. Apt representation by a reputable Construction Accident Attorney will make certain that your best interests are represented throughout the entire process. An experienced lawyer will determine the acceptable value for your case and use that assessment to negotiate with the insurance company and/or workers’ compensation adjuster(s).
Your accident – How do you get what you deserve?
Construction is one of the most hazardous industries in our country. Workers’ compensation ensures that those hurt while doing this dangerous work are properly compensated for their injuries and that they are not further victimized by retaliatory behavior from the at-fault party(s).
It is illegal in the state of New York for an employer not to provide workers’ compensation insurance coverage. It is absolutely in the employer’s best interest to maintain exacting safety protocols and procedures, adhering to rigorous OSHA standards, on the construction site. When an employer fails to do their part to keep employees safe, they may also refuse to file workers’ compensation claims safeguarding their injured employees in an effort to avoid paying an increase in their own premiums. Our collective expertise will coalesce to represent you when and if this should happen to you, and to champion your interests throughout your legal process until you receive the full compensation you deserve.
