NYC Construction Accident Lawyer
A law firm that knows how to build strong cases
Anyone who has ever been on a construction site knows how important safety is. Nowhere is that truer than in New York City, where it seems like there's construction on every corner. If you've been injured on a construction site, you need an experienced NYC construction accident attorney fighting for your legal rights. That's why you need to contact Pasternack Tilker Ziegler Walsh Stanton & Romano, LLP.
We help injured New York construction workers who have been hurt in all the following types of accidents and more:
- Falls from heights (including claims under the "scaffolding law," Labor Law 240)
- Trip and falls
- Machinery accidents
- Nail gun accidents
- Concussions and brain injuries
- Crane accidents
- Falling objects
- Construction vehicle accidents
We know your rights, and we will fight for you
New York law is clear: if you're hurt on the job, you get workers' comp, regardless of fault. Workers' compensation is supposed to pay for the full cost of your medical treatment as well as partial wage replacement if you can't work due to an injury. But your employer may dispute whether your injury was really work-related, using the chaotic environment of the construction site as cover to cast doubt on your claim. They may argue that a certain treatment that you need isn't really necessary, or that you had a pre-existing condition.
Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may also have a third-party claim against someone other than your employer, such as a subcontractor, property owner, or manufacturer of defective equipment. Third-party claims are especially common in New York City because many projects happen at height and the "scaffolding law" (Labor Law 240) places strict liability on property owners in the event of a gravity-related accident. We know how to pursue these third-party claims to get you full compensation for all of your losses, including excess wage loss, pain and suffering, and other costs.
It's important to take immediate action so that we can start investigating and get your claim in motion right away. Evidence disappears quickly on a construction site. Witnesses' memories fade. The sooner we can get to work, the better. Contact us today to schedule your free consultation with an NYC construction accident lawyer. You can come to any of our five offices in the city, or we can come to you.
