NYC Construction Industry Accidents

Feb 25, 2019

In a troubling turn of events, statistics show that the amount of construction industry attractions that occurred in New York City increased in the first seven months of 2018 when compared to the first seven months of 2017. While the number of accidents increased by nearly 18.5%, the amount of injuries from those accidents also increased almost as much by 17%.

Of course, considering New York’s recent building boom, it makes sense the number of construction industry accidents would increase. If you’ve been injured in an construction industry accident, you don’t necessarily have to settle with dealing with your injuries and the expenses that they caused all on your own, especially if you weren’t totally at fault for them. A Brooklyn personal injury lawyer at the Levitksy Law Firm can assist you today.

A Brighton Beach personal injury attorney can evaluate the specifics surrounding your construction accident and help you determine whether or not you have a valid case. If you do, then you don’t have to worry about whether or not you can afford a Brooklyn accident attorney because most construction accident attorneys won’t charge you for their services unless you receive a settlement, and then they will get a percentage of the settlement, which is usually somewhere in the vicinity of 30% of the settlement.

If you’ve been injured in a construction accident in NYC, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

They will fight aggressively for your rights and attempt to get you the maximum that you’re entitled to.
