The New York State Labor Law offers significant protection for construction, demolition, and certain other workers who suffer injuries at work. These laws may allow you to file a lawsuit against the owner of the construction site and/or the general contractor of the site and collect compensation. If you qualify to file this type of case, you may be able to recover compensation above and beyond the benefits available from workers’ compensation.
Winning this type of case will not necessarily be easy, however. These laws are complex and navigating the claims process is rarely easy. A forklift accident lawyer in Queens from Oresky & Associates, pllc can help you feel confident about your chances of recovering the compensation you deserve. Our team has decades of experience representing accident victims and will fight for your best interests throughout the entirety of your case.

We Can Help You Recover the Compensation You Deserve
Workers’ compensation laws do not allow you to file suit against your employer. However, if we can identify a negligent third party who caused your forklift accident or failed to prevent your injuries, we can help you file a lawsuit to hold them liable. Often, we can hold the company, the construction site owner, and/or a contractor accountable.
These cases can be exceedingly difficult to manage, especially when you are recovering from injuries. We can handle every aspect of your case, managing:
Building Your Case
We will gather the evidence necessary to prove whether another party’s fault caused your forklift accident. We will use the evidence we obtain to build a robust case proving liability against the responsible party for your injuries and other losses.
Determining a Value for Your Forklift Accident Claim
If we can prove your case, we may be able to recover a wide range of damages on your behalf.
The damages in these cases differ depending on the specific facts of your case, but may include:
- Pain and Suffering: Money Damages for Past, Current, and Future Pain and Suffering
- Economic Expenses: Lost Wages, Diminished Earning Capacity, Lost Union Benefits, Out-of-pocket Costs, Loss of Services
