Construction Accident

Were you injured on a construction site? Were you working construction when you suffered some kind of injury? Construction sites are among the most dangerous workplaces in America. Thousands of construction workers are injured on construction sites annually in New York alone. Yet, every day, construction workers do their jobs to the best of their ability. Here at Gratt & Associates, we have handled many construction accident cases over the years. 

If you or someone you love were injured on a construction site, we encourage you to reach out to us for a free case evaluation. During that, we’ll draw upon our years of experience to let you know your rights as well as how we may be able to help. 

How Do I Know If I Have a Construction Accident Case?

If you were injured while working construction in New York, you can file for workers compensation. However, you may also be able to pursue compensation directly from negligent contractors, employers, and so forth. 

Contractors and employers have a duty to educate their construction employees about the work site, safety, etc. If they do not uphold that duty and it directly leads to your injury, then you may have a case. 

By that same token, if contractors and employers don’t follow OSHA regulations, take reasonable steps to make your construction site and so forth, causing your injury, we can help. 

When we take your case, we’ll conduct a thorough investigation. During that, we’ll determine exactly who is liable and then bring a suit against all of them.

What Damages Can I Receive For Being Injured on a Construction Site?

If you’re injured on a construction site, you may be eligible for many different kinds of compensation. These injuries can be serious, necessitating medical treatment. If so, you may be facing medical bills from your medications, doctor’s visits, therapy, physical therapy, and the like. You can recover compensation for all of your medical bills. 

Unfortunately, these injuries are very often serious enough that even a dedicated construction worker has to miss work. If so, you can recover compensation for the wages that you lost. If you’re unable to work your job in the same capacity, then you can recover future lost wages as well. 

A construction accident can be very painful, causing suffering, no small amount of emotional distress, and similar problems. You can recover compensation for that as well as for loss of enjoyment of life and more. 

When you discuss your case with an attorney from Gratt & Associates, we can let you know what damages we believe your case is worth.

What Are Construction Site Accidents?

Construction site accidents can take many different forms. Over the years, clients have fallen on construction sites, been struck by objects that fell, crushed between objects, been injured by faulty equipment, been exposed to chemicals, and much more. 

In addition to employers, contractors, and the like, it may be that manufacturers, designers, and others could be liable for your accident. For example, should you be injured while operating a work vehicle or a power tool that had a design flaw, was improperly manufactured, or something similar, then that party might be liable for your accident as well.
