Construction Accident Lawyers
Dedicated To Fighting For Your Rights
Construction workers face great risk for injuries, even death. Their line of work is inherently dangerous. Even if they take proper precautions, serious injuries can occur. The potential for danger and harm doesn’t mean you lose your right to seek compensation. The lawyers at Birbrower & Beldock, P.C. help construction accident victims receive the damages they deserve.
Identifying and Holding Responsible Parties Liable
It is important to identify who is responsible for your injuries. In New York, employees cannot sue their employer for an on-the-job accident. Rather, they must file a Workers’ Compensation claim. In that type of action, the person injured can receive coverage for medical costs, disability benefits, and lost wages.
If a third party is responsible for the accident due to negligence, you have other recourse. Third parties include property owners, contractors, architects, and equipment manufacturers (faulty construction equipment), as well as co-workers or superiors who failed to maintain equipment.
