[00:00:05.280] I've handled a number of different types of construction accident cases. [00:00:08.760] Everything from broken scaffolds, [00:00:10.760] broken ladders, people falling. [00:00:13.000] I saw accident cases where they had improper guards, [00:00:15.400] people being struck by excavators or excavation machinery, [00:00:18.680] people slipping and falling on dirty conditions [00:00:21.120] or ice on a construction site, [00:00:22.760] even people stepping on nails on a construction site. [00:00:25.280] If you've been injured on a construction site, [00:00:27.720] New York law allows you to sue the general contractor [00:00:31.080] and the owner of the property for your injuries [00:00:33.320] in addition to receiving workers comp from your employer, [00:00:35.920] so we've handled every kind of case there is [00:00:37.520] on a construction accident that you can imagine. [00:00:39.720] If you're involved in a construction accident, [00:00:42.040] first thing you should do is take pictures [00:00:43.560] of whatever caused the accident, [00:00:44.880] because of course, [00:00:45.440] the construction companies and the insurance companies [00:00:47.680] are going to try to deny it happened, [00:00:49.360] or try to deny that you were injured. [00:00:52.120] It's important to have a lawyer on your side in construction accidents [00:00:54.720] because the construction company and their insurance attorneys [00:00:57.160] are already working against you while you're still at the hospital. [00:00:59.680] They're already trying to get statements to put the fault on you, [00:01:03.200] so it's important to one; if you're able to or have a buddy, [00:01:05.480] a document and photograph, whatever caused your accident, [00:01:08.840] make sure the accident reports are filled out correctly [00:01:11.800] and don't just sign something that they put in front of you. [00:01:15.120] You need an attorney on your side [00:01:16.360] to make sure you get what you're entitled to. [00:01:18.200] Any kind of case there is, [00:01:19.320] we know the construction industry. [00:01:21.520] When you tell me that you got hurt driving piles [00:01:25.960] or you got hurt on sheeting, [00:01:27.200] I know what you're talking about, [00:01:28.200] where 90% of the attorneys out there don't. [00:01:30.160] If you're hire us for construction accident case, [00:01:32.240] you're going to get personal representation. [00:01:34.560] You're not just a file like you are at some of the bigger firms. [00:01:37.720] You're going to get highly experienced attorneys [00:01:39.680] who are working on your case.
