Dedicated To Helping Injured Construction Workers
If you have been injured while working construction, you may have a personal injury claim in addition to any workers' comp you receive. If you have lost a family member in a construction accident, filing a wrongful death claim may help you hold the responsible parties accountable.
I am Brooklyn, White Plains and the Bronx construction accident attorney Daniel A. Kalish. Since 1986, I have been dedicated to representing accident victims and their families. I am here to see that you get all the compensation you are entitled to after a construction site accident.
Pursuing Claims Against Negligent Contractors
If a person or company other than your actual employer is responsible for the workplace accident, you may be able to file a personal injury claim in addition to your workers' comp claim. Examples of negligent parties include an equipment manufacturer, the general contractor or another subcontractor working on the project.
Under New York Labor Law 200, 240 and 241, general contractors are responsible for making sure that subcontractors do their jobs safely. That means that if you have been injured due to the negligence of a subcontractor, you may have a claim against the general contractor.
What Type Of Construction Accident Does Your Case Involve?
Whether you work in new home construction, commercial construction, renovation or even road construction, I can help. I handle cases involving:
- Equipment malfunctions
- Defective safety equipment
- Crane accidents
- Forklift accidents
- Falling objects
- Ladder falls
- Scaffolding accidents
It is important to understand that filing a personal injury claim can allow you to get substantially more compensation than work comp, which is why it should always be considered in the event of a construction site accident.
