Fearless Attorneys Who Pursue New York Construction Injury Workers Comp Benefits and Third-Party Claims
At the Law Offices of Pasternack Tilker Ziegler Walsh Stanton & Romano, LLP, we know the catastrophic effects construction accidents can have on your life. We also know New York scaffolding law and workers compensation law inside and out, and that workers compensation insurance companies will often downplay construction site injuries. But building site accidents can result in any number of life-changing injuries, including paralysis, coma, spinal cord injury such as a crushed spine, shoulder and neck injury or traumatic brain injury, and a long list of injuries requiring surgery.
Your injury may require surgery or physical therapy. You may be out of work for weeks or months. You might have to see a specialist or get a second opinion. Your job is to get the medical care you need, follow your doctor’s instructions, and focus on healing. We’ll take care of the rest.
Safety Violations on Construction Sites Can Mean Debilitating Injury, Even Death
Dangerous safety violations and lack of protective gear on construction sites can mean severe construction site injuries. Employers should provide every form of safety gear needed to protect workers, including hard hats, goggles and other eye protection, earplugs, headphones and other ear protection, steel-toed boots, and utility insulated gloves. Unfortunately, with a lack of essential protective gear and poor safety training at many building sites, we are never surprised at the construction site accident cases we see.
If it's a power tool accident or heavy machine injury, it doesn't matter what brand or equipment manufacturer was involved-Link-Belt, DeWalt, Caterpillar, Bobcat, Komatsu, Volvo, Case, Makita, Kubota, Black & Decker, or any of the hundreds of power tool companies that exist. Heavy equipment accidents and fatalities can happen, particularly due to disrepair, if proper inspections and scheduled maintenance are not followed according to OSHA regulations.
