If an individual or individual’s family member have been injured, or killed, because of a construction accident, auto accident, motorcycle accident, boating accident, pedestrian accident, slip and fall, or any other accident there may be compensation.
Construction workers injured on the job in New York State are entitled to special protection in which The Labor Law of New York places a high degree of responsibility for work site safety on the owner of the construction site and the contractors doing the work. The Labor Law ensures that workers will be compensated for injuries sustained from accidents involving a fall from an elevated height as many of these falls are caused by poorly equipped job sites, equipment failure, and/or a failure to follow State and Federal Regulations.
Injuries occurring on a work site entitled the injured party to recover monetary damages for those injuries as per Labor Law and Worker’s Compensation regulations.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Although an injury from an automobile accident, motorcycle accident, boating accident, or pedestrian accident often seem relatively minor the injury, in fact, may get worse if left untreated. Any individual involved in a motor vehicle accident should obtain prompt medical attention, as well as an attorney to help determine if other driver was negligent. An attorney can help secure rights and benefits under New York’s “No-Fault” insurance law. No-Fault entitles the individual sustaining injuries to compensation for the economic losses associated with a car accident, regardless of fault. No-Fault benefits pay for hospitalization, medical expenses, and lost wages up to fifty-thousand dollars ($50,000) but to obtain no-fault benefits notice to the insurance company within 30 days of the accident.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and Fall accidents occur when someone slips, trips or falls because of a dangerous condition on the premises of a property owner. When a slip and fall injury occurs because of a dangerous condition on the property of another the property owner or business may be legally responsible. Property owners have a duty to keep their property safe and are responsible for injuries that occur because of known dangerous conditions on their property.
Wrongful death is a cause of action brought by family members against a negligent party for causing the death of a relative. The sole purpose of a wrongful death case is to compensate the survivors for their loss. Compensation may be sought for sorrow and mental anguish, loss of income, loss of protection, care, and assistance, and the expenses for the care, treatment, and hospitalization of the individual that died.
