File a New York Construction Accident Lawsuit

If you have been injured on a construction site, you should consult with a qualified construction accident attorney in order to determine if you should file a lawsuit. By following the steps described below, you can protect your legal rights, develop a strong accident claim and handle workers' compensation issues.

After you have received appropriate medical attention for your injury, you must inform your employer or manager of the accident. Make sure you write down the name and official title of the person you spoke to about your injury. If you are filing a workers' compensation claim, you are required to complete the appropriate form which can be obtained from your supervisor. It is vital to write down the names and official titles of those who saw the accident, as well as their contact information (telephone numbers and name of employers). As with all injury cases, you should try to obtain as much evidence as possible. Therefore, you should take photos of the construction site, your injury and relevant construction equipment. More evidence often provides the injured party with a stronger case.
