Help for injured workers in a high-risk industry

Many people in Glen Cove and Forest Hills have found the construction industry to be a pathway to success. Unfortunately, it can also be a pathway to injury. It will probably come as no surprise to people in the construction business that there are many career-threatening injuries suffered by workers on building sites each year.

Can I sue for car accident injuries even if I'm partially liable?

Many car accidents are not the result of only one party making an error. This can be particularly troubling when injuries result from the accident - after all, if you are partially liable in the accident, doesn't that disqualify you from pursuing damages in a personal injury claim?

Car accident injures pedestrians when vehicle jumps curb

Since New York is so busy and there are a great many motor vehicles on the road at all hours, it is inevitable that there will be crashes. With any car accident, there is a chance for injury and fatality. This is particularly true with pedestrian and bicycle accidents. Since pedestrians and bicyclists are not provided the same protection as a person in a vehicle, there is a greater chance that there will be significant injuries. This can include a brain injury, a spinal cord injury and worse. When there is an accident of any kind, it is imperative to have legal help to consider pursuing litigation.

Study shows catastrophic injuries and construction deaths growing

New York construction workers know the general risks they face when they take the job. There are times when accidents will happen. They can be due to negligence, scaffolding falls, dangerous conditions and more. However, their employers are required to have certain safety procedures in place to mitigate the risk. However, a new report from the New York Committee for Occupational Safety and Health (NYCOSH) states that the number of construction workers who are killed on the job is increasing with many employers committing violations of code requirements and regulations.

With the number of drivers and vehicles on the road in New York, there is considerable risk for pedestrians and bicyclists that they will be in a motor vehicle accident. Given their vulnerability, people who are hit when they are not protected by a vehicle will often suffer significant injuries and fatalities. Those who are injured or lose a loved one in pedestrian and bicycle accidents must be aware of their rights to seek compensation after catastrophic injury or death in a crash.
