Accident Attorneys Protecting Construction Workers in New York City

In New York City, the construction industry is booming with countless new projects underway on nearly every block. While good for the economy, it can present many hazards for construction workers. Along with the new buildings comes new timelines in which to finish the project. Unfortunately, this can often result in contractors pushing workers to beat unrealistic deadlines and working faster than they should. When companies put deadlines over safety, serious accidents can occur.

Safety Gear to Prevent Head Injuries in Construction

Construction workers are supposed to be equipped with adequate safety gear, but injuries can still happen. Even worse is when safety equipment isn’t provided. When accidents such as a fall from heights or falling debris occurs, it can result in serious injuries. If a person is not wearing the proper headwear, it can cause a debilitating brain injury. These are serious matters that require a skilled and experienced New York City work-related brain injury lawyer.

The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C. represents individuals injured in accidents including the following:

Types of Compensation You Can Recover

When any type of construction accident occurs and leaves a worker with a brain injury, it is important to seek legal counsel and determine what kind of action can be taken. Unfortunately, the families of these injured individuals will notice the mounting medical bills and the costs that come with the injury. They often feel as though they have nowhere to turn. With a skilled attorney on your side, though, you may be able to seek compensation to help you deal with the financial hardships associated with a construction accident.

Compensation you may recover include, but is not limited to:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

Determining liability can help you in your claim. If a negligent worker was to blame for the accident, you may file a personal injury claim to seek compensation. Some accidents may allow an individual to go through the workers’ compensation process to obtain compensation. An injury attorney can help you understand the situation and plan for the next step together.

Long-Term Damages Require Long-Term Care

Quality of life is drastically effected after a brain injury. Depending on the severity of the injury, there will most likely be countless visits to the doctor and it may limit the injury victim’s ability to drive themselves. Some work-related brain injury victims may never be able to work for a living again.
