Construction Site Accidents
Working hard for the New York State workforce
Getting hurt on the job can ruin your livelihood and jeopardize your ability to provide for yourself and your family. You are most likely able to file for and receive workers compensation benefits — a small settlement and a standardized period of time off pertaining to your injury — but serious injuries involving another party on your worksite may qualify for a higher payout. Our Rochester construction site accident attorneys analyze your accident to determine if you have a third-party claim that entitles you to more money.
Construction sites serve as a worksite for employees, contractors, sub-contractors, vendors and property owners. If the incident that led to your injury involved a non-employee, you may be able to file a third-party claim. These claims are filed against the person or business that played a role in your accident — not your employer. For example, if a contractor failed to properly secure an object and that object fell and struck you, you may be eligible to file a third-party claim.
While your profession leaves you vulnerable to various injuries, those caused by another’s negligence or reckless actions cannot be taken lightly. Brown Hutchinson LLP lawyers fight for you when you are harmed in any third-party construction site incident, including:
- Falls from scaffolding
- Falls from unsupported ground
- Faulty equipment
- Gas leaks
- Falling objects
We understand what your job means to you, and we can help you recover all of the costs of your construction site accident.
