Recoverable Damages in a New Hyde Park Construction Accident Case
The damages available vary from case to case depending on your injuries, the facts of your case, the liable party, and several other factors. When a worker on a construction site suffers injuries on the job, they will possibly qualify for both workers’ compensation and a third-party claim. ( A “third-party” is a person or business entity that contributed to the cause of your accident and is not your employer or fellow employee. For example, the employee of another trade on a construction site who negligently caused your injury.)
The New Hyde Park construction accident lawyers from Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. will help you maximize the money you recover by working closely with workers’ compensation attorneys and pursuing a third-party claim on your behalf. We know how to build these cases to recover a wide scope of damages, including:
- Economic losses not covered by workers’ compensation
- Out-of-pocket expenses related to your accident or injuries
- Pain and suffering and other non-economic damages
There Is a Statute of Limitations That Will Limit How Long You Have to Take Legal Action
New York’s statute of limitations includes construction accident cases and other types of injury accidents. Injured parties have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit under these laws. When we review your case, we will explain the timetable for pursuing compensation and taking legal action in your case. If you retain our services, we will meet all applicable deadlines in your case.
New York Law limits how long we have to file a lawsuit, but it also offers important protections for all who work on construction sites. Improperly maintained construction sites and untrained workers are at risk themselves and also endanger others working in the same area. State laws that allow us to hold the general contractor, the owner of the property, or others liable are vital and help protect not only skilled workers but low-wage and undocumented workers as well.
