Construction Site Accidents In Amsterdam, NY
Equipment failure, burns, construction site falls, electrocution, crane accidents, forklift injuries, falling debris, and scaffolding accidents are among the most common causes of construction site accidents in the State of New York. Those who are injured in these accidents can be left with broken bones, traumatic head injuries, spinal cord injuries, and other ailments requiring painful and expensive medical treatment.
Dealing With Insurance Companies So You Don’t Have To
Oftentimes when a claim is filed with the insurance company responsible for the site, they will rush to offer an early settlement that represents the bare minimum of what they could potentially be liable to pay. Insurance companies can put a great deal of pressure on injured victims to accept early settlement offers knowing that with representation from a skilled construction site injury attorney you could potentially receive a great deal more in the way of compensation.
These offers often don’t take into account the long-term costs associated with your injuries. If your construction site accident results in long-term or permanent disability, your compensation package needs to represent the ongoing costs associated with your care and the wages you could have earned had you not been hurt. When you retain the services of our helpful construction site injury lawyers, we will work with doctors and care planners to assess the expenses you can expect well into the future, and hold insurance companies responsible for paying them.
