Brooklyn construction accident lawyer

Construction sites present some of the most dangerous work environments in the country. Only about six percent of the workers in the nation are employed in construction, but they make up about 20 percent of all job-related fatalities. That operates to give the construction industry the most employment-related fatalities of any industry in the United States. About 10 percent of all construction workers suffer an injury every year.

Common causes of construction injuries
Construction-related injuries and deaths in and around Brooklyn result from a wide variety of conditions and accidents. They might include:

  • Falls
  • Electrical accidents
  • Getting hit by falling objects
  • Becoming pinned between two objects
  • Ladder and scaffolding accidents
  • Trench collapses
  • Poisonous fumes or substances

Common construction accident injuries
Aside from fatalities, construction accidents can cause severe injuries. They could include:

  • Traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries
  • Spinal fractures and herniated discs
  • Upper and lower extremity fractures
  • Damage to major joints like shoulders or knees
  • Internal organ damage
  • Amputations

Care and treatment for these injuries can be long and incredibly costly. Sometimes the injured victims can’t return to their jobs for the rest of their lives.

Workers’ compensation might not be your only remedy
When a construction worker is seriously injured at a job site, medical bills are often overwhelming, and wage loss can go on for many months or a lifetime. Most construction workers believe that a workers’ compensation claim will be their sole and exclusive remedy. That’s a correct statement of the law in most cases, but what comes to issue is that workers’ compensation benefits don’t sufficiently compensate seriously injured construction workers for noneconomic damages like pain and suffering or loss of a normal life after an injury. There are times when an exception to the sole and exclusive remedy rule might be triggered. In that case, the injured worker can seek noneconomic damages too.

The third party liability exception
The third party exception to the sole and exclusive remedy rule arises when an injury was caused by another construction worker who wasn’t a co-employee of the person who got injured. For example, a plumber from ABC plumbing might get seriously injured as a result of the negligence of an employee from XYZ Electrical. When a construction accident occurs under those circumstances, New York law allows the injured plumber to file a negligence lawsuit against XYZ Electrical and its employee who caused the accident. It even allows the injured person to maintain that lawsuit at the same time as he or she is seeking or receiving workers’ compensation benefits.

Who can be sued in a third party case?
It’s the objective of Brooklyn construction accident lawyer Marc Albert to maximize the compensation for any injured client. That involves inclusion of all parties in a third party negligence lawsuit who were directly or indirectly connected with a construction injury or fatality. Those parties might include:

  • Contractors
  • Subcontractors
  • Manufacturers of defective construction equipment
  • Owners and occupiers of the premises
  • Property management companies
  • Architects

Brooklyn construction accident lawyer Marc Albert is sympathetic and compassionate when a serious construction accident upends and overturns a victim’s life and family. Construction workers who have been injured in accidents at the fault of third parties, and the families of those who have been killed in them deserve maximum compensation for the damages and losses that they have suffered. They all were innocent victims who went to work everyday and supported their families, and now they’re all devastated. Contact Marc Albert at 855-252-3788 for a free consultation and case evaluation after any serious construction accident. He has an established track record of multi-million dollar settlements and verdicts, and he’s highly respected in every courtroom that he walks into. That’s because he is fiercely dedicated to your cause. Because Mr. Albert takes these types of cases on a contingency fee basis, no legal fees are due until such time as he obtains compensation for you. You don’t have to come in with a penny.
