Brooklyn Construction Accident Lawyer

With the large number of construction projects, construction injuries and fatalities remain high. If you’ve been injured on a construction site in Brooklyn, you need to know your rights. You may be eligible to file a third-party personal injury claim. One of the best decisions you can make is to consult an expert Brooklyn construction accident lawyer.

However, unless you have previous experience with labor law, you may be unsure how to advocate for yourself. When employers or other parties have a vested interest in your swift return to work, they may use questionable tactics to protect their bottom line. Victims are vulnerable to misinformation and may end up confused about what rights they have.

Fortunately, New York has some of the strongest labor laws in the country, which can protect workers in this situation. However, you need an aggressive lawyer who can advocate for you, investigate, file the lawsuit against all possible parties, document your accident and injuries, and, when necessary, fight for you in court.

FAQs

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

  • Who Is Responsible for My Construction Accident?

    The laws in New York state that site owners and contractors may be strictly responsible for the safety of construction crews. When an injury occurs, it is frequently due to a lapse in oversight and safety. Even if you were partially responsible for your accident, you have a right to hold all involved parties responsible when you’ve been injured onsite.

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

    You can have up to three years to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, the deadlines can vary, so speak with a lawyer who can evaluate your case and properly advise you on how to proceed. Waiting too long to file a personal injury lawsuit can block you from later seeking damages. Contact us today!

  • Do I Have Rights as an Undocumented Worker?

    Many construction projects employ workers who are not U.S. citizens and work without documentation. In these cases, your employer can lead you to believe you’re not entitled to benefits or to file a lawsuit when you’ve been injured on-site. It’s important to understand that non-citizens and the undocumented have the same rights to file a lawsuit as documented workers in New York.

  • Can I File a Lawsuit If I’m Collecting Workers’ Compensation?

    In many cases, yes. While you may not be able to sue your employer, you might have a right to pursue a personal injury claim against the site owner, contractors, and other third parties. If you’ve been misled to believe you’re only entitled to worker’s compensation benefits, contact Eric Richman, Esq. today to evaluate your case and advise you of your rights.

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

    You should seek medical attention immediately. Call 911. Ask a friend or co-worker to help you if you cannot call an ambulance. Also, make sure to keep your medical records, take photos of the accident site of your injuries, and collect witness statements. If you need guidance or assistance collecting evidence, contact The Law Offices of Eric Richman today.
