Mistakes to Avoid After a Construction Accident
Were you or someone you love injured on a construction site in New York? You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Watch this video to learn about the mistakes to avoid after a construction accident in order to maximize your recovery and protect your rights.
One of the most important things to keep in mind if you are in a construction accident in New York and you want to seek recovery (which you’re entitled to under the law, for not just your wages, pain and suffering, and medical bills) is to immediately seek out counsel. Nothing good will come from waiting. There is certain investigation that can be undertaken by your attorneys or by investigators that they hire to look into the specifics of what happened at the site. Something as simple as perhaps getting photos of the site to use to give a better image of what happened, or to look into what investigation can be done by the defendants after the accident.
There are also strict timelines depending on if there are certain municipalities, or the city of New York is involved or has some responsibility in an accident. There are additional stricter timelines to put people on notice, so it’s important you immediately seek out counsel so that your attorney can judge and weigh how quickly to prosecute the claim in terms of sending out these notices, and bringing an immediate lawsuit. Because of the statutory timelines, both for municipalities and in general, it’s important to immediately seek out that attorney that can help you out in this case. Waiting is not going to do you any good.
