Hurt At An Albany Construction Site? Our Construction Accident Attorneys Can Help

Construction accidents in Albany can be overwhelming. Even knowing what your rights are can be confusing. That's why it's important to talk to an Albany construction accident attorney as soon as possible after your accident. That way, you can learn all about your legal rights and make informed decisions about what to do next. Our experienced, Albany workplace accident attorneys at Pasternack Tilker Ziegler Walsh Stanton & Romano, LLP can help you every step of the way. We understand how the legal system works in New York and know what it takes to win such tough cases.

Construction accidents often occur at construction sites in Albany and other nearby communities. As a result, it's sometimes easy to think that such cases are straightforward and can be resolved quickly without an attorney. But the reality is most construction accident injuries turn out to be far more complicated than many people first suspect. The party who caused the accident might deny doing anything wrong. And the construction company or its insurance provider might do everything they can to reduce or deny a legitimate accident claim. That's why it's important to talk to an attorney at our law firm as soon as possible.

Types of construction accidents

In Albany, as in any other city, construction accidents can happen for many different reasons. Some common types of construction accidents include:

  • Falls from heights – Construction workers often perform tasks at elevated locations, such as scaffolding, ladders, or rooftops. Falls from heights can result in severe injuries such as broken bones and damage to internal organs.
  • Machinery accidents – Heavy machinery and equipment are routinely used on construction sites. Accidents can happen if machinery malfunctions, operators are inexperienced, or safety protocols are not followed. This can result in crushing injuries and even amputation.
  • Struck-by accidents – Workers on construction sites are at risk of being struck by falling objects, swinging equipment, or vehicles moving within the site. These accidents can cause serious injuries, including broken bones and head trauma.
  • Electrical accidents – If workers come into contact with live wires or faulty electrical systems, they can suffer electrical shocks, burns, or electrocution.
  • Trenching and excavation accidents – Workers involved in trenching or excavation activities are susceptible to cave-ins, which can result in crushing injuries or suffocation.
  • Caught in-between accidents – Construction sites often have confined spaces, heavy materials, or moving parts that can trap or crush workers.

When workers are hurt on the job, they deserve workers’ compensation benefits that pay for medical expenses and partial lost wages. They may also be able to recover additional compensation from a negligent third party. Our firm helps injured workers get the best possible outcome after their accident.
