Construction workers and those in related industries often use various
saws and cutting blades on a regular basis in performing their jobs. Circular
saws, power saws, table saws, band saws and chainsaws are typical tools
of the trade. This kind of equipment holds innate dangers, hence the heavy
safety regulations governing this kind of activity. Despite these measures,
however, accidents do sometimes occur and when they do, they can be devastating.
It is not uncommon for a cutting accident victim to lose a finger, hand or limb.
Sadly, death can result due to injuries to internal organs or loss of blood.
If you have lost a loved one to such a
construction accident, a New York City construction accident attorney can help you pursue a
wrongful death claim. If you have been injured in a cutting accident due
to the negligence of another or
defective products, you may pursue damages for your losses and suffering.

Speak with an NYC Construction Accident Lawyer
Following such an accident, an insurance adjuster may contact you to offer
you a settlement. While they usually appear very friendly and you may
be tempted to accept their offer, it is very important you don't enter
into discussions or make any agreements with them. Their purpose is to
conclude your case by paying you as little as possible.
This is unacceptable when not only have you suffered a life-changing injury,
you are also facing the financial stress caused by large medical bills
and lost income.
Lurie, Ilchert, MacDonnell & Ryan LLP can liaise with the insurance companies on your behalf and fight for what
we know you deserve. While most cases can be settled out of court, we
can represent you at trial when it serves your best interests.
