FAQs

This is not legal advice.
Since every case is unique, consider working with a lawyer to get advice on your specific situation.

  • How Do I Prove Negligence in a Construction Accident?

    To prove negligence, you or your legal team must establish that a lapse of care, oversight, or safety occurred while you were on site. Most construction accidents are entirely preventable and can be traced back to negligent employers, contractors, or other third parties. However, these parties will likely deflect the responsibility for the accident on you to protect their bottom line. This is why working with an expert lawyer can help defend your case and ensure you recover the monetary damages you incurred due to your injuries.

  • How Much Time Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?

    The specifics of your case and the parties involved will determine the filing time. While it could be as long as three years, don’t assume you have a standard three years to file based on other cases or general information online. Don’t miss your deadline because this could eliminate your ability to recover your expenses later. Contact us today!

  • Do I Have Any Rights as an Undocumented Worker?

    Yes, absolutely. Employers and other parties have a vested interest in deterring you from filing a lawsuit, so they may try to convince you that undocumented workers have no right to seek a personal injury claim in New York. This couldn’t be further from the truth. You have the same rights as any other worker in the state.

  • What Should I Do After Being Injured in a Construction Accident?

    Stop what you’re doing and seek immediate medical attention. If you’re not able to call 911, have a co-worker or friend help you. Make sure you keep your medical documents. You also want to start collecting evidence of the accident, like photographs, videos, and witness accounts of the accident. If you need assistance in gathering evidence, contact The Law Offices of Eric Richman today.

  • How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me?

    Eric Richman, Esq., can put a value on your case, notify all parties of your lawsuit, serve papers to involved parties, investigate your case, properly document evidence, and defend your rights inside and out of court. Having an expert lawyer by your side can make a profound difference in your case and your ability to focus back on healing and recovery after a construction accident.

  • How Are Settlement Amounts Determined in These Cases?

    Construction accident settlement amounts will be determined by the unique details of the case, including the severity of medical injuries, the extent of the effect of the accident on your personal and professional life, lost income, and the extent to which the general contractor, site owner, and third parties held responsibility in the accident that occurred.

    Some plaintiff’s lawyers over promise to clients at initial sign-up. At the Law Offices of Eric Richman, we always try to be realistic with our clients from day one. In reality, case value and the full extent of your damages are unknown at the beginning of the case. Therefore, any estimate of damages and money recovery is unusually unknown as well.
