Helping Construction Accident Victims Seek Compensation
If you work in construction, you already know how dangerous construction sites can be. In fact, even the slightest mistake can result in a tragic situation – especially if you are working on top of scaffolding or around heavy machinery.
At the Law Office of Ira Pintel we understand how quickly a construction accident can turn your life upside down, which is why our attorney, Ira Pintel, is committed to helping you get back on your feet. You might not realize that you may have a strong personal injury claim against third parties (other than your employer), which is separate from any workers’ compensation claim you might also have. Our lawyer can evaluate your situation and help you pursue a personal injury claim against the right parties.
Maximizing Your Recovery After Any Kind Of Construction Accident
With nearly 30 years of legal experience, attorney Pintel and his staff can assist you following any type of construction site injury, including those caused by:
- Falls from heights, including accidents involving ladders and scaffolding
- Electrocutions and burns
- Heavy and large machinery, including forklifts, cranes and backhoes
- Chemical exposure
- Trench cave-ins
No matter what your injury is, our lawyer will carefully investigate the circumstances of your accident in order to determine its cause and the party responsible, whether it is the property owner, the general contractor, a subcontractor or any other third party. Only then can you maximize your recovery.
You Need A Lawyer Who Knows The Law
In the blink of an eye, a construction accident can leave you unable to work and with years of medical treatment and debt ― making it more important than ever that you receive the compensation you deserve.
At the Law Office of Ira Pintel, we understand personal injury law, and we will put this knowledge to work for you. For instance, Section 200 of the New York State Labor Law states a common law obligation to use reasonable care in the maintenance of a work site. Likewise, New York Labor Law Section 240 contains special provisions if you are injured by or on scaffolds, ladders, pulleys, ropes, braces and other similar devices. Attorney Pintel knows how to apply these laws to maximize your compensation following a construction accident.
