The Vital Question – What to do if Injured On a Construction Site?

Beyond this alarming figure is the important question of how these injured construction workers get due compensation and move on with their lives.

What Constitutes a Construction Accident Claim?

Getting injured at a construction site can be really tough on the victims and their families. Often times, injured workers want to know if they qualify for a construction accident compensation or settlement.

 

Here are the key things to look out for:

Negligence

Generally, there is a duty of care owed by construction companies, contractors, and property owners to maintain a safe construction site and workplace. The New York State Law and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration Safety Regulations impose a general duty of care on employers to maintain a reasonably safe site for workers. When the party under the duty of care has not done all it should reasonably do to keep you from harm and you suffered an injury, wage loss, or medical expenses, you will be entitled to compensation for your injury.

In summary, there are three elements of negligence:
  • Duty of care
  • Breach of that duty
  • Resulting injury or harm

The Law Offices of Elan Wurtzel is ready to fight on your behalf and prove your claim beyond a reasonable doubt if the above elements are present in your case. Perhaps you don’t think all these elements are present in your claim. If so, we offer free consultations with a construction site accident attorney in Long Island to help you look through the fine details of the incident and give professional advice.
