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 in NYC?

    If you’ve been injured on a construction site, you might believe that you don’t have a case if you hold some responsibility for the accident. However, New York State law says the general contractor or owner of the construction site is ultimately responsible for the oversight, safety, and well-being of construction workers, which means you absolutely have a right to hold them responsible and take legal action.

  • Is there a Time Limit to File a Construction Accident Lawsuit?

    Generally, there is a three-year statute of limitation for these cases. In other cases, it could also be as short as 90 days or less. Don’t delay to contact a lawyer if you’ve been injured. Contact us today!

  • Do I Have Rights as an Undocumented Worker?

    Undocumented workers have the same rights as any other documented worker. If you are an undocumented worker and have been hurt on-site, don’t let your employer lie or try to intimidate you. You have every right to seek legal compensation for your injuries.

  • How Do I Recover Costs Associated With Loss of Work and Medical Bills?

    You might also be unaware you can pursue a third-party liability claim against the site owner, general contractors, property owners, landlords, and equipment manufacturers. This is why you need an aggressive, expert NYC construction accident lawyer like Eric Richman, Esq. by your side to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

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

    You should immediately seek medical attention and report the injury to your employer. Also, if you’re not able to start collecting evidence, request that friends or family members take photographs and videos of the accident site, keep your medical records, and request witness accounts of the accident. Most importantly, enlist The Law Offices of Eric Richman to protect your rights!

  • How Are Settlement Amounts Determined in These Cases?

    Settlement amounts in NYC construction accidents are largely influenced by unique details surrounding the case. The amount is determined with several factors in mind:

    • The extent and severity of the injuries
    • The impact on the quality of life
    • Lost income
    • The extent of the property owner’s liability
