Though every construction accident case will present its own unique set of circumstances, there are few general damages that accident victims seek to recover as part of their personal injury claims. Under the broader umbrella of damages that are related to pain and suffering, accident victims typically pursue reparations for the costs of medical and rehabilitative care, any loss of income, diminished capacity to earn income, and any emotional trauma they were forced to undergo as the result of the accident.

If you believe your employer is responsible for the injuries you sustained in a construction zone accident, you need to speak with an experienced attorney as soon as you possibly can.

As such, when injuries are the result of an unsafe worksite, a negligent employer or property owner may be determined to be responsible for any damages associated with those injuries.

Medical costs and lost wages can quickly accumulate into a stressful financial situation for injury victims and their families.

Liability for injuries in a construction accident largely depends on the cause of the accident. In some cases, equipment manufacturers may be liable for damage caused by faulty machinery, tools, or any other defective structure. In other accidents, negligence on the part of co-workers or third party contractors may be to blame. Property owners may be held liable in some cases, particularly if an accident was caused by ground conditions. Other instances may be the result of employer negligence, when an employer does not ensure that a construction site abides by certain safety standards, or workers are not properly trained.
If you have experienced a construction accident and are unsure who could be held liable, an attorney at Hach & Rose, LLP, can help you determine who is responsible for your injuries. Call our offices in New York at Hach & Rose, LLP today to discuss your particular case and your options for recourse.
