Aggressive Advocacy For Injured Construction Workers
Due to the nature of construction work, the men and women who work on construction sites face risks every time they are on the clock. Construction sites can be dangerous places to work, especially when employers and site managers do not make safety a priority. At Greenspan & Greenspan P.C., we help injured New York construction employees understand their rights and move forward with the appropriate course of action after an accident.
If you are hurt, you most likely will be unable to work and support your family. The aftermath of a construction accident can be distressing, but we can help. Our goal is to help you regain your financial stability and confidence for the future. Our lawyers have decades of experience helping injured workers pursue the compensation they deserve through third-party civil claims.
Common Types Of Accidents On Construction Sites
Construction workers have incredibly important jobs, but in performing these jobs, they often face risks to their personal health and well-being. Faulty equipment, moving vehicles, lack of safety equipment and improper procedures can lead to accidents that may result in devastating injuries. In many cases, it may be possible to also seek compensation through a personal injury claim while also filing for workers’ compensation benefits.
We assist workers who have been injured in any type of on-the-job accident, including:
- Ladders and scaffold accidents – Improper use of ladders and scaffolding equipment can lead to falls from heights. Falls are one of the most common sources of jobsite injuries, and they can have serious or fatal consequences.
- Crane accidents – When using cranes on a construction site, it is important to implement various safety measures to avoid accidents such as rollover or crushing incidents.
- Falling objects – Falling equipment and debris poses a significant risk to workers. These incidents are often preventable with safety training and enforcement of proper site procedures.
Do Not Let Your Immigration Status Prevent You From Seeking Compensation You Deserve
We protect the rights of all construction workers – including undocumented ones. If you are undocumented, you could still be entitled to compensation through a third-party claim. It is in your interests to work with an attorney who can preserve your interests and fight for the compensation you deserve.
In any type of accident claim, we do not delay in jumping in and taking immediate action on behalf of our clients. Our aggressive approach has played a large role in the success we have built since our founding in 1959.
