New York City Construction Accident Attorney
Causes of Construction Accidents
Construction is one of the most hazardous occupations in the country. Every day, workers are around heavy machinery and construction materials, power tools, exposed wiring, ladders, scaffolds, uneven ground, and other dangers. Accidents are quite common in construction zones and can be compensated in one of two ways. Many construction accidents can be covered through the workers' compensation insurance of their employer, while many construction accident cases are also eligible for personal injury compensation from what is called the "third-party."
For example, if you were injured while working for a sub-contractor the third-party may be the owner of the land or the building or the general contractor. if you were injured while working for the general contractor a third party may be the owner of the land or the building or a sub- contractor. Jaroslawicz & Jaros, LLC can help construction accident victims determine who they can sue and what action they need to take in order to recover necessary compensation above just receiving worker's compensation benefits.

Other common construction accidents include heavy machinery accidents, electrocution, toxic inhalation, defective products, and more.
