NYC Construction Accident Lawyer

Servicing the Bronx, Queens, Manhattan and the NYC Metro Area

Often, profits are prioritized over job site safety at the workers’ expense. In New York, construction involves heavy equipment such as cranes, hoists, scaffolds and ladders. Construction is dangerous and a contractor’s failure to follow proper safety procedures may result in accidents causing broken bones, spinal cord damage, brain trauma, paralysis, and amputations.

At Oresky & Associates, PLLC, our Queens and Bronx construction accident lawyers provide compassionate, knowledgeable legal representation to help accident victims obtain the financial compensation they are entitled to receive. In New York, Workers’ Compensation benefits only provide one part of the compensation that a construction worker may be entitled to receive. In addition to Workers’ Compensation, a construction accident victim may also be entitled to start a lawsuit for pain and suffering and other money damages caused by an accident.

Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

How Do I Make an Accident Report from a Construction Accident?
If you suffered injuries in a construction accident, you must report the accident to your foreman or employer, but there are other steps you also must take if you hope to receive compensation for your injury. First things first! If you have been hurt, seek medical care and attention immediately. If you need an ambulance, ask for one to be called. Your construction foreman may or may not be aware of your accident. Do not assume they received word of the incident. Even if you verbally told your co-worker about it, this notification will not always help you if your employer does not have actual knowledge of your construction accident.

How do I find a lawyer for a car accident?
Finding a lawyer to represent you in your car accident case requires research—there simply is no way around it. Begin your homework by searching online for car accident lawyers in your area (New York City, Bronx, or Queens, for example). As you review their websites, check for the following characteristics: 
  • Experience in personal injury law—and with car accidents, specifically
  • Results—financial value of settlements and awards
  • Positive testimonials that speak to you

What is a deposition?
A deposition or EBT (examination before trial) is an opportunity for the defendants’ lawyers to ask you questions under oath about how your accident occurred. Depositions are normally conducted in an attorney’s office or the office of the court reporter who is transcribing your testimony. All parties are usually deposed.
Why do I need a car accident lawyer; can’t I just call the insurance company myself and try to get a settlement?
Insurance companies have skilled attorneys working to protect them as well as adjusters whose job it is to resolve claims for as little money as possible. Car accident victims representing themselves will usually be at a significant disadvantage. You should have skilled personal injury attorneys at your side, like those at Oresky & Associates, fighting for your rights, with a proven track record of obtaining over $300 Million Dollars in verdicts and settlements for New York accident victims. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation with an experienced New York car accident attorney.
Who do I sue for my injuries in a car accident case?
Claims for car accidents are usually made against the insurance companies for the owners and operators of the vehicles involved in the car accident. Sometimes a driver’s employer, a business entity or other party may need to be added to the claim and future lawsuit. Make sure that all of the proper parties are made part of your case so that you receive the compensation that you are entitled to.
What questions should I ask a personal injury lawyer?
When searching for a personal injury lawyer, you should ask questions about their experience, services and results.  You only have one chance to recover and finding the right lawyer can make a big difference in the final outcome of your case, the level of services that you receive, and the amount of compensation that you are awarded.   Want more information? Read our full article here.
What happens if I am partially at fault for my car accident?
As long as you are not 100 percent at fault for your car accident you can still recover money damages for your injuries from the other party who caused your accident. Most accidents involve some degree of comparative fault between the parties.
How does a medical malpractice lawsuit work?
Medical malpractice lawsuits usually begin with an insurance claim. Your attorney will attempt to prove your case and negotiate a settlement that covers your damages. If obtaining compensation outside of court is not an option, you can pursue a civil suit. Want to find out more? Read our full article here.
