Injuries from construction site debris are preventable. Property owners, general contractors, or supervisors are required by law to maintain a safe workplace that is as hazard-free as possible. When employers fail to take the steps necessary to protect workers, such as removing unnecessary debris, they should be held accountable for the injuries suffered by their workers. Negligence does not need to be proven for worker’s compensation claims, however, negligence does need to be demonstrated when pursuing a third-party claim.
If you or a family member has been injured due to construction site debris, you need to seek legal counsel from a qualified lawyer in New York. We represent those injured in construction accidents involving any type of serious injuries, such as broken bones, spinal cord trauma, paralysis, or loss of limbs. The injury attorneys at Kalra Law Firm will work diligently to get you the full compensation you deserve.

Hiring A Construction Accident Lawyer
In the construction industry, the dangers at worksites are always there. But when you add in the challenge of getting the workers’ compensation you deserve after an accident, it can feel even more overwhelming. If you’ve been hurt while working, you need your workers’ comp to kick in as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, if you’re a union worker, the specific rules and deadlines that apply to your benefits can make the process more complicated. That’s where the committed construction accident attorneys from the Kalra Law Firm come in. We’re here to work on your behalf and ensure you receive the benefits you’re owed.
The sooner you collaborate with an experienced accident attorney, the stronger your position will become.
You might be confident that someone else was at fault for the accident, and you might believe that your case is strong enough to handle directly with the company. However, there are important things to consider.
If they do offer compensation, it’s often a low-ball offer that they hope you’ll accept. Once you accept, the case is closed, and you can’t pursue further action in the future. It’s important to think about the long-term consequences.
Accepting a quick settlement could leave you with substantial medical bills, uncertain about your recovery, and unsure about any lingering side effects. Returning to your regular job might not be an option, and you could be left with pain for life. Your life may be permanently altered. Considering these factors, you’ll realize that a rapid settlement is often not in your best interest. Quick monetary settlements aren’t typically offered to benefit you; they serve to protect the responsible company.
Before talking to anyone besides your doctor and medical staff, it’s essential to contact an attorney that has experience, not only with construction type accidents, but those worker’s who are unionized. Avoid answering questions or speaking with anyone from the company. While they may express genuine concern, they are also looking out for their financial interests and may gather information for later use if a case is filed against them. It’s good to believe the best about people, but it’s equally important to protect yourself.
