Types of Construction Accidents
While it can be argued that there are numerous inherent dangers of working in the construction industry, construction crews should not have an expectation that they will be hurt while on the job. If managers and inspectors follow protocol, it is quite possible to prevent construction accidents entirely.
Unfortunately, we do not live in an ideal world, with accidents happening frequently due to another party’s negligent actions. Construction accidents can cause catastrophic injuries to both workers and passersby alike, including brain injuries, spinal cord damage, amputations, disfigurement, severe burns, electrical shocks, and sometimes death.
Commonly occurring types of construction accidents include:
Falls from scaffoldings
If you have been injured in any of the above scenarios, you may be entitled to recover compensation through either a personal injury claim, workers’ compensation claim, or both. Depending on the circumstances, you may be entitled to monetary damages for your lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, rehabilitation costs, and lost earning potential.
Act Now to Seek Justice for Your Suffering
If you have suffered an injury in a construction accident, it is imperative that you act quickly to ensure you meet all applicable legal deadlines. Personal injury cases in New York are subject to a three-year statute of limitations and must be filed within this timeframe in order to be heard by the courts. If you do not file a claim before this time limit expires, you may lose your right to pursue legal action.
