Standing Up For Every Construction Accident Victim
Construction sites are dangerous for both construction workers and individuals passing by the site. Equipment used at these sites is often inherently dangerous. Injuries occur despite laws aimed at protecting workers and the general public such as New York’s Scaffold Law.
Important Information For Accident Claims
You should never feel alone during the process of filing a personal injury claim. We treat every case as our most important case, because we know it’s most important to you. You will meet personally with one of our attorneys who will help you gather all the necessary information regarding your accident.
This can include:
- Any pictures you took after the accident, including what the construction site looked like and what machines were involved
- Pictures of your injuries
- Medical records
- A list of people who witnessed the accident and their contact information
- Any notes you took to help you remember exactly what happened
We listen to you to understand your concerns and your goals, and work tirelessly to get you the results you need. We won’t settle for any less.
At Gianfortune & Mionis, P.C., our lawyers work hard to hold construction sites accountable for injuries that occur on those sites. Whether you are a construction worker or an individual passing by a site who was injured in a scaffold accident, we give personal attention to every accident victim to ensure they get the compensation they rightfully deserve.
Construction Workers — Know Your Rights
Even if you are a construction worker and have already filed paperwork to receive workers’ compensation benefits from your employer, you may be able to receive additional financial compensation if a third party, such as a contractor, contributed to your accident.
This is also true for workers in other trades. Whenever you are injured on the job by a third party, you may be able to secure both workers’ compensation and bring forth a personal injury claim. Contact our offices today to further discuss your unique case and explore your options.
