Recover compensation after accident

Everyone deserves to earn their living in a safe working environment, whether their workspace is an office or a construction site. It is an employer's duty to ensure this, by either removing potential safety hazards or training employees on how to deal with safety hazards. When this duty is breached and an employee is injured in a construction accident that results in catastrophic injuries, they find themselves struggling to make ends meet and cover their medical expenses at the time when finances are often the tightest.

Injuries such as these have a devastating impact on one's life. Depending on the type of injury incurred, the accident victim might be out of a job for a couple of months or even permanently, while the hospital bills pile up. What many workers who have been injured by a fall from an elevated height don't realize is that they are protected by law in New York, as discussed in last week's post.

Though one knows of the dangers of working from heights, one never expects that they would be the one who ends up getting injured. As a result, many people fail to assert their rights and lawyers at our firm recognize that the legal process to do so may be overwhelming, which is why we work hard to navigate our clients through it and protect their interests to the fullest possible extent.

With more than 50 years of experience under our belt, we strive to get our clients more than just workers' compensation. Lost wages, pain and suffering and medical expenses are all available to workers injured in scaffolding and ladder accidents and we try to get our clients everything they deserve.
