CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS can cause a wide range of life-threatening injuries, including traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, and other severe damage. From personal injury lawsuits to workers’ compensation, our Syracuse construction accident attorneys are here to help you and assist you with your case.
Despite safety precautions, construction laborers are exposed to risk on a daily basis. When workers suffer injuries or death, injury attorneys at McMahon, Kublick, PC pursue every available path to recover compensation for them and their families.
Sadly, New York workers compensation law prohibits employees from suing their employers for on-the-job accidents and leaves injured laborers to recover workers compensation payments only from their employer. Often, workers compensation is insufficient, particularly for serious and long-term injuries.
Fortunately, an injured person can recover against a third party, such as a contractor, architect, manufacturer, property owner, or other person (except for a co-employee) or entity who may have been responsible for causing the injuries.
