Long Island City Construction Accident Causes

As in any field of work, construction jobs come with some level of risk. While this is a daily factor in many workers’ lives, protocols should be in place to prevent serious harm.

There are many reasons that a construction accident might occur, some of which include:

  • Improperly secured equipment
  • Improper use of equipment, including forklifts and heavy machinery
  • Faulty building materials
  • Failure to conduct strength testing of building materials
  • Improperly placed scaffolding
  • Neglecting to follow safety procedures
  • Improperly secured tools
  • Insufficient worker training
  • Failure to provide workers with adequate safety gear

With proper management of the construction site and adherence to safety protocols, many accidents can be avoided. However, sometimes a general contractor, subcontractor, or even a property owner can neglect their duties to provide a safe working environment for all.

Construction Accident Injury Resources

Am I Eligible to File a Construction Accident Lawsuit?

If a party other than your employer may have contributed to your accident, you may be able to hold them financially accountable for your injuries. This includes property owners, general contractors, or subcontractors. A construction accident attorney can help identify potentially liable parties when they review your case.

If a negligent third party may have caused your accident, our Long Island City construction accident attorneys will conduct an investigation to gather evidence showing how their actions may have caused you to be injured. This will be crucial for proving why you may be entitled to compensation.

Regardless of whether or not you qualify to file a personal injury lawsuit, in most cases, you can also apply for workers’ compensation benefits to help cover your medical expenses and lost wages while you are unable to work. Our Long Island City workers’ compensation lawyers can help you file a successful claim.

Seeking Compensation After a Long Island City Construction Accident

There are several things that will factor into the compensation our Long Island City construction accident lawyers can pursue on your behalf. First, our construction accident law firm will look at all of the bills that resulted from the accident. These commonly include medical bills for your immediate healthcare, as well as estimated future bills if your injuries require long-term medical treatment.

The incident may also leave you temporarily or permanently unable to return to work. With medical bills piling up, the inability to earn a paycheck can be extremely stressful. Any decrease in your earnings or your earning potential may be compensated. Our attorneys will work hard to pursue all possible financial losses to make sure you focus only on restoring your health and getting back on your feet.

A personal injury lawsuit may also compensate you for past and future pain and suffering you have to endure as a result of your injury. This is not covered under workers’ compensation.
