Construction Accidents

Lawyer for construction accidents lawsuits Richard Gurfein talks to about construction site accident with Q104.3 Maria Molito.

Falls are the most common type of accident on job sites. But falls aren’t the only potential hazard:

  • Crane Accidents
  • Scaffolding Accidents
  • Forklift Injuries
  • Heavy Equipment Accidents
  • Electrocution
  • Machinery Accidents
  • Workers Struck by Falling Objects

Explosives, ladders, power tools and toxic materials like solvents and heavy equipment can cause serious injury, even death, especially if your employer improperly maintains the equipment, or if the worker isn’t trained in the proper use of these tools and materials. In fact, almost all serious accidents at the workplace are complicated matters that involve equally complex principles of science and engineering. If you are hurt badly at work, your first resort is to file for workers compensation. But, workers compensation benefits are almost always inadequate. Your only other recourse to get the compensation you need, and deserve, may be to file a lawsuit against the party, or parties, responsible for your situation. With degrees in engineering and biology hanging on walls right alongside our law diplomas, the New York construction accident lawyers at Gurfein Douglas are your Lawyers With An Edge when fighting negligent general contractors
