Determining Fault and Liability for Your Construction Accident Case
While you can recover workers’ compensation benefits after a construction accident injury, those rarely cover all your losses. However, it is possible that a third party’s negligence caused or contributed to your construction accident. In this case, the Hempstead construction accident lawyers at Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. will investigate your accident and gather the evidence we need to prove this party was at fault and is liable for your injuries and related damages.
We gather evidence with the goal of proving:
- The party in question had a “duty of care” to protect you from injury.
- They neglected this duty of care.
- Their negligence caused your accident and injuries.
- You suffered damages as a result of the injuries.
The legal team at Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. will gather the evidence needed to present your case in the very most compelling manner possible. Call us today at 516-932-0400 to start building your case.
