Construction Accident

On average, two construction workers die from the United States every day while at the worksite. Many more are injured. Construction work by its very nature is very dangerous, which is why one out of five workplace deaths tend to be attributed to construction work. If you or a loved one is injured or killed on a construction worksite, it is imperative that you contact a construction accident lawyer in Staten Island for assistance. The laws surrounding construction sites are complex, but the personal injury lawyers at Sgarlato & Sgarlato are well-versed and ready to fight for what you deserve.

Demand Compensation for a Construction Accident

Outside of workers’ compensation, an employee usually cannot sue their employer for injuries, but other parties may also be responsible for what occurred. Depending on the type of accident, an employer also may be responsible if the accident occurred because of faulty safety equipment or improper training. Most employers will not volunteer this information and will attempt to push injuries under the rug if they can by offering small incentives like paid time off following an injury. Do not be tricked by their offers of false support. Contact Sgarlato & Sgarlato to get the support of construction accident lawyers in Staten Island who know the system and can fight for you.

You Are Entitled to Compensation Following a Construction Accident

We look at every responsible party following a construction accident to determine which party or parties owe you compensation for your injury. Not only should you receive compensation for your medical expenses, but you are owed money for your pain and suffering, emotional health, and loss of income during the time of recovery and potentially afterward if your injury is expected to cause long-term disability or a diminished quality of life. Our construction accident lawyers will not stop until you receive a settlement that matches what you have been through.

Who Is Responsible Following a Construction Accident in Staten Island?

Your employer, owner of the premises, general contractor, or any other contractor involved in the building project where you are injured could all potentially be held liable for your injury, and we will ensure that every single one of them is held accountable. Construction workers are commonly injured or even killed by falls, objects that strike them with a high velocity or weight, electrocution, and/or becoming a wedge between two objects on the worksite. It is easy to see how any of these accidents could occur if someone is negligent on the worksite or employees are not properly trained on the worksite.
