- Posted on: Oct 6 2016
Construction accidents can happen. As a dangerous job with serious equipment and risks, it isn’t uncommon to hear about a construction worker experiencing an accident. But when an accident does happen to you or a loved one, you deserve to get the compensation you deserve from the lawsuit.
To ensure your legal case goes as smoothly as possible and ends in your favor, you’ll want to hire the right legal representation. At Held & Hines LLP, we have the experience, skill and knowledge to help you through the construction accident lawsuit process.
Why You Need a Construction Accident Attorney
For someone without experience, the construction accident lawsuit process can be a difficult one. While you may think the process only consists of holding your employer responsible for the injury or accident, there are actually more than a few regulations, complications, and laws that you must follow.
If you believe that your construction accident was caused because another individual was negligent or intended to do you harm, your lawsuit may actually be a personal injury case. In a personal injury case, you will need to prove that the accident at the construction site could have been avoided if the responsible individual had thoroughly done his or her job.
Personal injury cases on the construction site can include slip and fall accidents, defective equipment, collapsed structures, electrical accidents, falling objects, fires and explosions, and more.
With the help of a New York City personal injury attorney, you will have assistance throughout your entire construction accident lawsuit. Your attorney will help you determine which party is actually responsible for the injury, gather witness statements and testimonies, and review the construction site to determine if the claim is legitimate.
