What You Don't Know Can Hurt You Again


Working in construction is no picnic. You put your body on the line shift after shift, day after day to earn a living for your family. While bumps, bruises and soreness are expected, serious injuries are not.

In the event you suffer a debilitating injury that keeps you off the job or threatens your life, do you know what your rights are?

Let us refresh your memory with answers to the following frequently asked questions.

How much time do I have to bring forward a personal injury claim?

The statute of limitations for personal injury cases is three years in New York, but you have nothing to gain by waiting and much to lose. We recommend speaking to an attorney about your situation as soon as possible. This will allow evidence to be gathered and a strong case to be built.

How much is my case worth?

The dollar amounts can vary wildly, but a successful personal injury claim can provide funds to cover your medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages resulting from your injury.

What should I do if I've been injured in a construction accident?

Notify your employer, see a doctor, and get in touch with a proven personal injury attorney. In Manhattan and throughout New York City, that means reaching out to Block O'Toole & Murphy.
