Workers like you get hurt badly every day because your job involves working at heights, often great heights, in all kinds of weather and wind conditions. Falls are the most common type of accident on job sites. But falls aren’t the only potential hazard. Heavy equipment, including power tools, ladders, explosives and toxic materials like solvents can cause serious injury and even death if your employer improperly maintains the equipment, or if the worker isn’t trained in the proper use of this equipment.
Workers compensation benefits, while useful at times, are rarely adequate enough to get a worker back on his/her feet and to care of his/her family and the mounting expenses. Hiring a top New York construction accident lawyer could very well be a worker’s only other recourse for getting the compensation you need and deserve.
