Utica Construction Accident Attorney
Construction sites are some of the most dangerous workplaces, and the injuries that result can be devastating. If you have suffered an injury in the construction industry, you need an attorney who understands the full range of legal options available, including possible claims that other firms might overlook.
The law firm of Hobika Law Firm represents workers throughout New York, evaluating each accident and the circumstances that caused the construction site injury to determine all compensation that is available. This can include workers’ compensation, personal injury claims and Social Security Disability.
In many job-related accidents, workers’ compensation is the only available claim for collecting benefits. In construction, however, there are often many other parties involved, meaning a third party could be partly responsible for your injury, including contractors, vendors and someone other than your employer or co-workers. You can claim personal injury damages against third parties who have been negligent.
Utica Construction Accident Lawyers
Our lawyers work with construction workers who suffered injuries on residential or commercial job sites due to such causes as the following:
- Falls from roofs, scaffolds or ladders
- Excavation accidents
- Truck or mobile equipment accidents
- Crane accidents
- Malfunction or failure of construction machines, tools or safety equipment
- Electrocution or explosion injuries
- Negligent storage of tools, supplies or debris
We devote the same level of attention to detail in the documentation and proof of your damage claims as we use in establishing the liability of a third-party defendant. This focus on the nature and extent of your losses can protect the value of your claim from inadequate offers or the defendant’s expert testimony challenging your injuries.
It can sometimes take an injured worker months or years to make a full recovery and return to work. We will be by your side throughout the recovery process, revisiting the case to determine if there are more benefits available as time passes. If you have been hurt and out of work for more than a year, we will help to file for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). This is a complex process, and the deck is often stacked against the claimant. Without knowledgeable guidance, a slight mistake in the application can cause it to be denied, resulting in a waiting period. We will help you avoid a denial.
