Construction Accident Lawyers in Albany
Construction site fall injury victims face immediate legal questions following an accident. Common questions include "what are my rights" and who can help me recover the compensation I need and deserve"?
Construction site fall injury victims enjoy unusual legal support and rights from New York state law. In addition to protective laws governing workers' compensation and general liability, employers can face "strict liability" in fall-related accidents. In cases involving strict liability, the law assumes that the injured (or deceased) party is owed damages. The primary legal task remaining is to determine how much compensation should be awarded.
If you have been injured in a construction site fall accident in New York, contact the Albany law firm of Friedman, Hirschen & Miller, LLP. Our attorney team has practiced workplace injury law for a combined 75 years, and our lawyers have an average of 25 years of experience.
We work with medical experts to gather the full information needed to document clients' full injuries, and work with economists to quantify the full financial consequences of injuries and wrongful death; in New York state, families of wrongful death victims can only recover compensation for lost income and other quantifiable economic loss. There is no financial value placed on the death itself.
