What Are My Legal Options After a Construction Accident?
Construction is one of the largest industries in the country. It is also
one of the most dangerous professions. In fact, a study produced by the
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) showed that injury
rates in most professions have recently declined, except with construction jobs.
There are numerous reasons that construction is a hazardous occupation,
especially when another’s negligence is involved, such as:
- Inadequate equipment
- Dangerous work environments
- Poor safety precautions
- Negligent construction managers
If you or a loved one was in a construction accident, you may have the
right to file a claim for compensation. Our legal professionals can help
you assert your rights.
If proper precautions were not taken and you are now faced with an injury,
contact our New York City construction accident lawyers today. With the guidance of a New York construction accident attorney at our
firm, we can help you pursue compensation from an accident caused by the:
- Owner of the building or structure
- General contractor
- Construction manager
- Manufacturer of the equipment
Statute of Limitations for Construction Accident Claims
In the state of New York, the time limit, or statute of limitations, for
bringing about a claim of negligence is three years from the date of the
accident. This holds true for cases involving construction accidents.
If the construction accident results in a fatality, you will only have
two years from the day that the accident occurred to file a
wrongful death claim. Keep in mind the strictness of the statute of limitations and take swift
action to seek the legal guidance your case requires.
