Construction Site Accidents in Poughkeepsie, NY
While precautions are usually taken to reduce the risk of injury to construction workers and other people at or near construction sites, it’s not uncommon for negligence or equipment failure to result in somebody getting seriously hurt. Victims of construction site accidents can sustain serious personal injury, including broken bones, burns, electrocution injuries, lacerations, traumatic brain injuries, back injuries, and more. In many cases, injuries sustained in a construction site accident result in long-term or permanent disability, affecting a victim’s means of making a living and quality of life well into the future. In addition to medical bills, the wages you lose while you are unable to work can lead to significant financial hardship.
Dealing With Insurance Companies So You Don’t Have To
Following a construction site accident, many insurance companies will put pressure on injured victims to accept an early settlement offer in the hopes that, in doing so, you will agree to receive far less than what you could potentially get in the way of compensation than you could with representation from a skilled construction site accident lawyer. The problem with early settlement offers is that they seldom take into account pain and suffering and lost wages, especially in cases where the injured victim is left with long-term or permanent disability.
The compensation you receive for your construction site injuries needs to reflect the complete toll your accident will take on your finances and your quality of life, now and in the future. At Friedman Hirschen & Miller, LLP, we work with doctors and care planners in the Poughkeepsie, NY area to determine the extent of your injuries and establish a realistic picture of the financial repercussions, and help you fight for fair compensation to cover them.
