How Can A New York Construction Accident Attorney Help Me?

If you have been injured in a construction accident in New York City, you should contact a qualified attorney as soon as possible.

Many injury victims ask, "How can a New York construction accident attorney help me?" or "What can a lawyer do for me that I can't do for myself?" There are several advantages to having legal representation throughout these proceedings, not the least of which is letting the attorneys on the other side know that you want your claim taken seriously.

Most construction workers do not understand their rights after being injured on the job site. Many are aware that they have access to workers' compensation benefits, but few have much information beyond that.

The insurance companies that cover the negligent parties in these cases are keenly aware of most victims' lack of knowledge and see these cases as an opportunity to get away for a minimal settlement. Get the representation you need from an experienced lawyer at our firm.

Injury victims who try to handle cases on their own risk letting third parties gain an advantage, even before a claim has been filed. Third parties are often aware that they may be held liable and have already begun an investigation into potential defenses for their liability. By retaining a legal team soon after an accident, workers can ensure that their claim receives its own thorough investigation.

In addition, retaining a lawyer early in the process can help prevent problems with workers' compensation claims. The information workers enter into a workers' compensation form may be used against them in a third-party claim. An experienced attorney can help an injured worker avoid this pitfall.
