Construction Site Accidents
Have you been injured while working at a construction site? In addition to receiving Workers’ Compensation Benefits, you may be entitled to bring a lawsuit to recover additional compensation for your pain and suffering, along with future medical care and lost benefits and wages. In fact, New York State has enacted laws (New York State Labor Laws) that address construction accidents and allow for recovery against a negligent third party, not your employer.
Construction Accidents frequently occur on construction sites. Some examples of construction site accidents involve falling from heights (ladders, roofs, scaffolding), falling objects, slip and falls due to liquids or slippery surfaces, trip and fall accidents due to debris or insufficient construction, and burns from electrical wires or other hazardous substances.
Did you know that Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance providing wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of employment in exchange for mandatory relinquishment of the employee’s right to sue his or her employer for the tort of negligence? Even if you receive Workers’ Compensation benefits, you may be able to bring a third-party legal action against any entity or individual not associated with your employer.
Premises Liability (Slip / Trip and Fall)
Property owners, commercial tenants, lessees, and homeowners have a legal responsibility to ensure that their property is safe and free of slipping and tripping hazards. In the event a person slips due to water, grease, oil, or any other substance, or trips due to uneven sidewalk/pavement, cracks, or debris, a lawsuit can be commenced to recover for any injuries sustained as a result of the accident.
Motor Vehicle and Truck Accidents
Motor Vehicle Accidents are a daily occurrence throughout New York City (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island), Long Island (Nassau County and Suffolk County), and Westchester. A person is entitled to recover from an automobile accident when they suffer a serious injury under the law, which includes a fracture, dismemberment, death, or the permanent loss of a body function or organ. These types of cases involve pedestrian knockdowns, rear-end collisions, and side-swipe collisions. Oftentimes, an individual feels fine after an accident but later begins to develop symptoms, such as pain and discomfort. It is important to have a medical evaluation, including diagnostic testing, after your accident and obtain a medical determination regarding your health and condition.
Mass Transit Accidents
Have you slipped and fell in a subway station due to water? Have you tripped and fell at a bus stop due to a dangerous condition? Did you know that government entities and public authorities, such as the City of New York, Metropolitan Transportation Authority, New York City Transit, Long Island Railroad, and the Port Authority, are required to safely maintain their property for customers and individuals? If you sustain an injury as the result of carelessness or negligence, the property owner can be held responsible for failing to maintain their property and prevent the accident from happening.
Dental / Medical Malpractice
Dental and Medical Malpractice occurs when the treatment provided by a professional falls below the acceptable standard of care and results in serious personal injuries. Usually, the professionals are negligent in failing to inform the patient of all available treatment options and the associated risks and benefits related to each, failing to perform adequate procedures, failing to refer to a specialist, and failing to diagnose.
In most cases, your medical records must be reviewed by an outside expert to determine whether the doctor or dentist committed malpractice. These experts will help determine if your injuries are due to malpractice and, if so, how the malpractice caused your injuries.
Exposure to Toxic Chemicals
A person that is exposed to toxic chemicals, such as lead paint, asbestos could be at risk of developing a life-threatening illness. In many cases, victims are not aware that they have been exposed until the symptoms begin to present themselves. Treatment is often available for those who have been sickened by toxic exposure, but it can be costly and cannot undo the needless suffering that one has already endured.
