Who is Responsible for My Construction Accident in Queens?
General contractors and site owners in the New York City area are responsible for ensuring the safety of their construction crew. Accidents can occur when general contractors, site owners, landlords, and other third parties responsible for ensuring safety on site fail to uphold safety standards. As a victim, you have legal rights to hold them accountable in court.
How Long Do I Have to File a Construction Accident Lawsuit?
The statute of limitations depends on the details of the case. You can sometimes have up to three years to file a case. In other cases, it could be as short as 90 days or less. Don’t lose your opportunity to file your lawsuit. Contact us right away to evaluate your case.
I’m an Undocumented Worker. Do I Have Any Rights?
Employers looking to protect their interests may lie to you and make you believe you don’t have the same rights as a documented worker. Don’t believe it. In New York, undocumented workers have the same rights to initiate a lawsuit as documented workers.
How Do I Recover the Costs of Loss of Work and Medical Bills?
When your finances are limited, and you are struggling to make ends meet and cover increased expenses caused by your injuries, especially when dealing with permanent injuries, you’ll want to consult with an attorney. Contact us to evaluate your case!
What Should I Do After Being Injured in a Construction Accident?
Immediately after the accident, seek medical attention and report the injury to the site owner. If you cannot move and need assistance, have a co-worker or friend call 911. Also, have friends, family, or co-workers assist in documenting the accident, taking photos of the accident site, and gathering eyewitness accounts. The Law Offices of Eric Richman can also assist you in gathering and properly documenting your 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.
