What Does a Construction Accident Lawyer Do?
Construction accident lawyers provide comprehensive assistance to individuals hurt in construction accidents. Our team can:
Answer Your Legal Questions
We provide you with guidance about your next steps if you sustained injuries in a construction accident. We may give you details about New York’s workers’ compensation system or provide other avenues to secure damages for your losses.
Investigate What Happened
We dig into the facts of your construction accident, helping you seek compensation to cover all of your losses. We vary the assistance we provide based on your specific circumstances. In some cases, we can:
- Visit the construction site where the accident occurred
- Speak with all eyewitnesses, including your fellow employees
- Get access to surveillance footage from the accident
- Acquire a copy of the accident report
- Work with construction accident experts
We can use this information to build a claim on your behalf.
Discuss Your Options
We can review all potential options to resolve your legal claim when you contact us for help after a construction accident. In some cases, employees file a workers’ comp claim to seek damages because New York generally doesn’t allow you to sue your employer.
However, you may have a chance to file a third-party lawsuit if someone other than your employer caused your accident. For example, we could help you file a lawsuit if a defective piece of safety equipment caused your injuries.
You can contact us to learn more about the specifics of your case.

Can a Construction Accident Lawyer Bring You Compensation?
A construction accident lawyer can work aggressively to help you secure compensation to cover all of your financial losses. We understand that these accidents can cause major injuries, including concussions, paralysis, amputations, and internal injuries.
In this situation, you may receive funds to cover your current and future healthcare costs and a percentage of your lost pay through a workers’ comp claim.
A lawsuit may allow you to seek full damages for your lost wages and lost earning potential. Additionally, you may receive funds to cover your emotional pain and mental anguish after an accident with help from an attorney.
What Does a Construction Accident Lawyer Charge?
Construction accident lawyers in New York generally work on contingency. This system means the law firm gets a percentage of your final compensation after resolving your claim through a settlement or lawsuit.
Therefore, construction accident lawyers get different compensation for each claim they take on and only receive payment for legal fees after handling your legal case. You can discuss this system in more detail by contacting us for a free consultation.
