Did You Suffer an Injury During a Saw or Blade Accident?

Cutting and sawing are integral components of construction – from the manufacture and supply of materials to how they’re used on worksites. Though workers are well-aware of the dangers posed by the cutting tools and machinery they use, even the most experienced and vigilant construction worker can suffer harm when using or being nearby dangerous bladed machines.

If you or someone you love has suffered harm and losses as a result of using any type of saw or bladed equipment, our New York City construction accident lawyers at The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C. can help you navigate the steps toward recovering the compensation you need. Whether your case must be resolved through an employer’s workers’ compensation insurance, or litigated by means of a civil injury lawsuit, we have the experience and resources to help.

Dangerous Equipment. Serious Injuries.

From hand tools for small jobs, reciprocating, jigsaw, and circular saws for demolition, custom fitting, and rip cuts, and job site table or miter saws to heavy and highly specialized machinery designed to cut certain materials or perform specific functions, bladed equipment is ever-present on construction sites. Unfortunately, these tools and machinery pose significant risks of accidents and injuries – to workers, contractors, and anyone who travels near or through constructions sites.

Though cases vary depending on the circumstances and types of machines involved, victims injured in blade and saw accidents can suffer serious injuries in various types of accidents. These include:

Liability & Victims’ Rights

Because saws and bladed equipment can cause serious injuries and far-reaching consequences for victims and families, ensuring they’re properly made, maintained, and used is of the utmost importance. Should parties present on construction sites or others with legal duties to take reasonable safety measures fail to adequately address the dangers of bladed machinery and keep workers safe, it’s possible for construction workers injured on the job to file a personal injury lawsuit in addition to a workers’ compensation claim.

As civil claims which require evidence of fault and liability, personal injury suits demand the attention of experienced attorneys familiar with the complicated situations and insurance issues which accompany construction site accidents. At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., our team can help you understand your options for seeking needed compensation and fight for the financial recovery you deserve after all types of accidents, including those involving:

Whether your accident claim involves defectively designed or manufactured products, negligence, workplace violations, or non-compliance with the Labor Law, you can be confident about placing your trust in a firm that knows New York law, and how to secure the results injured construction workers need.
