When you’re up against the system, you need to know how it works
If you were hurt in an accident in New York City, you shouldn’t get hurt again by the insurance company. Insurance adjusters and defense attorneys know how the personal injury process works. They are involved in it every day, and they know how to work the system to pay injured people as little as possible.
You need to understand what you’re up against. Our job is to demystify the personal injury process and help you find your path forward. Note, however, that these articles are general information on personal injury claims in New York, not legal advice on any specific situation. If you’ve been injured, we strongly encourage you to discuss your individual case with us in a free consultation.
Falls from heights are among the deadliest types of construction accidents, especially in New York City where workers may fall from many stories above grounds. We explain why they’re so dangerous – and how negligent construction companies can be held accountable.
When you’re hurt on the job, you can get workers’ compensation, but that only covers a portion of your losses. Because of the nature of construction work, you may also be able to file a third-party claim – and that can make a difference of hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars.
