Experienced, Resourceful New York Job Accident Lawyers
If you have been hurt on a construction site, seriously enough that you may miss work for months or even be unable to return to your job at all, it is essential to consider every possible means of financial support.
Workers' compensation benefits are essential, but many injured workers and their families find that they are not nearly sufficient to prevent financial hardship. Those with career-ending injuries often have recourse other than Social Security Disability Insurance benefits as well.
Are You Entitled to More Than Workers' Compensation Benefits?
Many serious, injury-causing construction accidents justify a lawsuit against a party other than the injured worker's employer. Under New York law, building owners and general contractors can be held financially accountable for safety breaches on job sites — whether or not they were present on the site when the accident occurred. Our Rochester workers' injury compensation lawyers have extensive experience winning difference-making monetary recoveries for the injured and their families.
Only a dedicated attorney with strong investigative resources and in-depth knowledge of the laws covering construction injuries in New York can evaluate all your legal options. At Kammholz Messina, LLP, this is a clear focus of our successful practice.
Our many decades of experience handling on-the-job injury cases has led to numerous recoveries far greater than victims could have received through workers' compensation alone. This experience extends across the spectrum of New York construction accidents and serious injuries, including:
- Ladder and scaffolding accidents
- Falls from roofs and other elevated work sites
- Trench collapses
- Demolition accidents, such as those involving impact from falling objects and debris
- Accidents caused by defective safety equipment and industrial products
- A range of other on-the-job accidents with consequences ranging from fractures and joint injuries to permanently disabling brain damage and spinal injuries
