Construction Accidents

Have You Been Injured in a New York Construction Accident?

If you work in the construction industry, you are vulnerable to suffering a wide range of workplace accidents. If you have been injured, it is important to explore your legal options.

At Eisenberg & Baum, LLP, our New York construction accident lawyers help workers who have suffered injuries on construction sites, at factories, and using tools and equipment. We can help you explore all of your legal options, including workers’ compensation and personal injury claims. We are dedicated to helping you obtain the compensation you need and deserve.

If you have been injured in a construction accident, your workers’ compensation coverage can allow you to recover compensation for your medical bills and a portion of your lost wages.

Construction Accident Lawsuits

If your injury was wholly or partly caused by a negligent third party, you may also pursue a personal injury lawsuit. Personal injury law allows compensation for pain and suffering, and other elements not covered by workers’ compensation law.

In construction accidents, this means that you can sue parties that are not your employer, including construction site owners, general contractors, subcontractors and other parties. Our attorneys can help you explore all of your legal options, so you can pursue the maximum amount of compensation allowed under the law.

Read more below about common issues involved in construction site accidents. Or contact us for a free consultation about your case. Eisenberg & Baum is a New York City-based injury law firm with central offices in Manhattan and additional offices in Manhasset, Long Island, and Los Angeles.

Our personal injury attorneys bill on a contingent fee basis — you won’t have to pay us unless we win your case.
