Construction Accident and the Construction Accident Lawyer

A construction accident can be a devastating event not only physically but emotionally as well for the injured worker and his or her family.  It is critical that an injured worker of a construction accident not only get the best medical treatment, he or she must also get the best construction accident lawyer.  Determining whether a construction accident lawyer is the right lawyer or law firm is not always easy.

An injured worker or person who sustains injuries at a construction site often has permanent lifelong limitations.  The main focus of the injured construction worker is to get better and heal, first and foremost.  The right medical treatment makes all the difference and the sooner your receive treatment the better chance you have to a full recovery, typically.

However, it is critical that the construction lawyer choosing process be handled with care.  It should be done with a loved one or friend aiding in the decision in the injured construction worker because of his or her delicate and weakened condition while he or she is on the road to recovery.

The reason why it is necessary for the careful choice of a construction accident lawyer is that the laws for construction accidents are complex and you need a construction accident lawyer or construction accident lawfirm that is intimately familiar with the labor laws, specifically labor law section 240 and the relevant applicable sections.

Make no mistake, construction accident injuries are serious business.  You need a construction accident lawyer that handles that serious business with aggressive, caring legal representation.

Because of the nature of typical construction accidents serious injuries could occur from falling from scaffolds, falling from ladders, employers failing to provide the proper or adequate safety equipment, an unsafe work environment, crane accidents, and building collapse – the list can go on and on.  Your construction accident lawyer should be familiar with the labor laws and engineering behind all of these various types of construction accident scenarios.

Construction accidents bring with them, unfortunately, very serious injuries typically to any and every part of the body.  Some of those areas include head injuries and fractures, spinal injuries and back injuries resulting in surgery, shoulder and knee injuries, paralysis such as parapalegia or quadrapalegia and many times death.  A wrongful death claim on behalf of a loved one in a construction accident is a very common occurrence in the construction accident law arena.  A construction accident lawyer needs to navigate the labor laws involving a wrongful death in a construction accident along with the estate laws for the deceased worker.

If you, a friend or a loved one has suffered serious injuries in a construction accident call the aggressive, caring construction accident lawyer, Pasquale Calcagno, Esq., for a free, confidential consultation at 1(800)WE-FIGHT.  As always, there is no fee unless we win your case.  We have convenient locations all over New York and can even have an attorney come to your home or hospital upon request.

Construction Accident: Window Washer Hires Lawyers. New York Lawyers, Attorneys, Attorneys

Wednesday, February 13th, 2008

The inherent danger of construction work consequently brings attention to the frequent misdeeds of the wealthy development and construction companies that try to save money by ignoring safety laws.  The case below is just another example of the necessity of personal injury lawyers to level the playing field and keep these despicable companies from putting the workers who drive our economy in harms way.

After surviving a 47-story fall, a Manhattan window washer has filed suit against the companies responsible for the scaffolding that gave way and caused the accident.

Mr. Moreno is truly blessed that he survived a 47 floor fall.  His brother wasn’t so lucky.  In addition to obtaining the money he needs to survive from the egregious injuries he has sustained he has a duty to sue the company responsible on behalf of his brother and all others who may be put in harms way in the future by the alleged careless and negligent actions of the company.  Besides giving the injured party economic and non-economic monetary awards, a personal injury lawsuit is vital in keeping the negligent party from ever acting negligent again or forcing them to put measures in place to prevent accidents.

In December, Alcides Moreno, 37, and his brother, Edgar, attempted to access an East 66th Street building’s window washing scaffold. When the scaffolding gave way, both brothers fell 47 stories to the plaza below.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages, but claims that the recklessness and negligence demonstrated by the companies responsible for the management and construction of the scaffolding was the major contributing factor to the accident. Currently, the management company’s insurance company is looking into the suit.

Labor law cases are very complex and one should choose a lawyer that is experienced in these types of cases.  Contact us for a free consultation today or call us at 1(800)WE-FIGHT.

Edgar was pronounced dead at the scene. Alcides survived and is undergoing treatment at a physical rehabilitation center.

Physical rehabilitation is a long and arduous road.  Our prayers and blessings go out to Alcides who survived this horrific accident and his family for their loss.
