Falls On Dangerous Property/Premises Liability
If you slipped and fell — or tripped and fell — due to dangerous conditions on someone’s poorly maintained property, the outcome may be more devastating than you ever could have imagined. If your injuries require surgery, will cause you to miss work, or have other costly repercussions, you owe it to yourself and your family to contact a lawyer knowledgeable in New York’s premises liability statutes.
Falls At Work – Construction Site Accidents
Construction sites are inherently dangerous and work injuries are a common occurrence. Unfortunately, falls from height can result in severe, life-altering injuries. If you or a loved one has fallen from a scaffolding, ladder or building structure, it is wise to discuss your accident with an experienced personal injury attorney.
Workers’ Compensation And Beyond
In addition to rights under workers’ compensation, you may be entitled to make a claim against the property owner, general contractor or construction manager. These third party benefits may extend well past benefits afforded by workers’ compensation. The most significant third party benefit is what is known as “pain and suffering” including the effect the injury has on someone’s quality of life.
