Manhattan NYC Construction Injury Accident Lawyer

Manhattan Construction Accident Lawyer

There is always a potential risk in working in the construction industry. Construction workers account for 27% of all work-related deaths in NYC, despite making up only 5% of the city’s total workforce. Even with the effort being put into reducing accidents in the construction workplace, the amount of workers that get injured and/or killed on duty is still alarmingly high.

Types of Construction Accidents

Construction accidents can come in all forms and there can be dozens of factors that can cause an accident. These factors are what make working in construction a more dangerous profession than others. Even when there are precautions in place, no workplace can be entirely secure and accidents are bound to happen. Some of these can include:

  • Building collapse
  • Brazing accidents while cutting and welding
  • Crane accidents
  • Accidents due to defective equipment
  • Dumpster accidents
  • Electrical accidents
  • Falling objects
  • Slip and falls
  • Forklift accidents
  • Gas explosions
  • Logging accidents
  • Ladder accidents
  • Nail gun accidents
  • Scaffolding Accidents
  • Structure failing
  • Wrongful death

Serious accidents like these can leave the victim out of work, sometimes permanently. It is vital to seek help immediately after an accident to determine the state in which a victim is in and the options they have for the betterment of their future. If a victim has suffered a major injury that could potentially be detrimental for their future work or future health, they should be properly compensated and taken care of. 

Steps To Take After A Construction Accident

If you or a loved one has been involved in a construction accident, it is important to consult with a construction accident attorney immediately. Most victims of construction accidents aim to file for a workers’ compensation claim. New York City has a no-fault system, so the injury doesn’t have to prove fault. This route may seem the easiest and most convenient, however if the victim suffered more severe injuries, they can go further and file for a personal injury claim.

An Ask4SAM lawyer will know how to handle each step in filing for further claims in order to receive the maximum compensation for the damages done. More often than not, victims of construction accidents are not compensated for all the expenses involved after the accident.

These can include:

  • Amount of Lost Income
  • Disfigurement and scarring
  • Nursing care
  • Emotional distress
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Post-traumatic stress syndrome. Including depression and anxiety
  • Rehabilitation
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium

Your health should always come first after an accident. This is why we ensure that you are properly attended to apart from helping you in your legal matters. Expenses after an accident are no joke and it might even take months before a victim is able to work again. The compensation received might not even cover those expenses. This is what we fight for and represent for our clients: the ability to allow their clients to be treated right by the law.

Lee Sprague 1 review 9 months ago I had never been in an accident before and was completely overwhelmed by the situation I found myself in. All of a sudden I was inundated with forms and paperwork and had no idea how to navigate these complicated waters. I found Silberstein Awad and Miklos on the internet and reached out not knowing what to expect. I am so thankful that I did. Silberstein Awad and Miklos eased my mind and took control of the situation. At all times I knew that I was in the best hands and felt completely taken care of. What an incredible comfort it was knowing that I had someone watching out for my best interest. It left me free and comfortable to focus on my recovery. Thank you Jonathan Urena and the entire SAM family for taking care of my case and for working to get me an EXTRAORDINARY settlement. It does not eliminate the pain of my accident but it does help to know that I can move forward with my life.Steven Goldfeder 1 review 10 months ago Let's start with the most obvious reason that people work with an attorney. My settlement was WAY beyond what I expected. I was kind of amazed at the tenacity of the firm in going after the opposing insurance company to secure a top settlement. Now a bit about my experience with the staff. Initially I met with Joe Miklos who was extraordinary generous with his time. How often do you meet with a partner who spent time listening to me and preparing me for the process of settling my suit. After that day however I almost never spoke to Joe. Understand, I always knew he was available however with the incredible team of Jonathan Urena (my paralegal) and Toni Tipaldo (the office manager) I simply never needed to speak with him. My team had me handled and well informed from start to finish. Of course nobody wants to be in an accident but it is good to know that in the event that I need a law firm to represent my best interest I have SAM to rely on.Jannettia Pearce 1 review 11 months ago Great firm. I was involved in a hit and run accident where i suffered serious injuries. Thanks to SAM years of experience they were able to find coverage and compensate me. Highly recommend to friends and family.Stephanie Sanchez 3 reviews 9 months ago Had a car accident case with a different firm, medium size policy, big injury(back surgery). The prior firm was doing nothing to settle it even after it hit over a year old. I switched over to Silberstein Awad and Miklos. They were able to have it settled very quickly and for the full policy. The attorney was attentive and on top of it. I would highly recommend.
