Construction Accident Lawyers in Rochester, NY
Recover with us. In confidence.
A construction site is the workplace for a wide variety of trade professionals. From architects to electricians, tradespeople are required to work in a live, ever-changing work environment. As with any other workplace, accidents can happen, but due to the nature of construction work sites full of hazards and heavy equipment, injuries can be serious, life-changing, or even deadly. In the event of a forklift accident, crane accident, electrical, scaffolding, ladder, saw or machinery accident, the victim and/or their loved ones may be entitled to compensation.
When you or a loved one have been injured in a construction accident, New York State law provides channels for you to seek compensation. There are special rules and obligations placed on all owners and contractors to ensure that what is already a hazardous activity is not made more so by the absence of necessary safety devices and practices. The loss of the ability to go to work can wreck havoc on a family, and devastate the career plans of an injured worker. Compensating that loss through a combination of worker’s compensation benefits, medical insurance and appropriate claims against the other responsible parties is vital.
Our Rochester area personal injury attorneys are aggressive and diligent in building a case that will go after responsible parties for the acts or omissions that resulted in your injury, or injury or death of a loved one.
