A Lawyer Who Understands Construction Fall Accidents
Construction sites are full of known dangers, but sometimes the most serious injuries can result from things that seem the least dangerous. A fall from a ladder or scaffolding collapse just a few feet above the ground can result in broken bones, paralysis and traumatic head injuries.
Even A Minor Fall Can Cause Major Injuries
Many construction workers are injured by falls that result from slipping or tripping on discarded construction materials, debris that isn’t properly cleaned up or spills that aren’t clearly marked. With so much exposed construction equipment, these slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents can easily result in broken bones, neck and back injuries, and other injuries that require hospitalization and rehabilitation.
As an experienced construction falls attorney, Howard R. Sanders, Esq., has represented many hardworking New Yorkers who were injured on the job. He has helped construction workers collect compensation for their work-related injuries, winning large verdicts and settlements for his clients — many worth hundreds of thousands of dollars and over $1 million.
We obtained $650,000 for a worker who was seriously injured by slipping on an electrical conduit and $1.2 million for a worker who slipped on garbage. Call us today for a free case evaluation if you have serious work-related injuries at 212-983-5151 or 800-731-9976.
Beyond Workers’ Compensation
There are special laws in place to protect construction workers in New York City who are injured on the job. In addition to filing a workers’ compensation claim, injured workers may still be entitled to collect for:
- Permanent injuries
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
Worker’s compensation rarely makes up for lost income and the medical bills that can pile up after an accident. Clients who turn to our firm know we do everything possible to get them every penny they’re fairly entitled to collect.
