Queens NY Construction Accident Lawyers
A Queens NY Construction Accident Lawyer clients can depend on at Polsky, Shouldice & Rosen, P.C. understands that a construction injury can be very scary and immensely painful. Unfortunately, construction site supervisors, contractors, and property owners may lack regard for workers’ safety, leaving them without necessary equipment and protective gear. Construction work in itself is more dangerous than most jobs, but this does not mean that injured workers have to accept what has happened to them.
Your Health is the Priority
After a construction accident, your priority must be to ensure that your health is okay. Stop, get yourself somewhere safe, and notify your employer right away about what unfolded and if you have any visible injuries. Your employer should have you report the incident and then get you a doctor’s appointment the same day. If you are an employee, then chances are your employer has a workers compensation program where you can get coverage for medical care and other losses.
Workers compensation programs were created to help injured victims get the care they need while also helping prevent a lawsuit being filed against the company. The primary reasons why you may be ineligible for workers benefits are if you caused the accident to happen or were under the influence of drugs or alcohol when it occurred. However, we can discuss this with you and review your employer’s policy and then advise on what to do from there.
After visiting the doctor, please request a couple copies of your medical records, one for your keeping and one for your Queens Construction Accident Lawyer in New York from Polsky, Shouldice & Rosen, P.C. The more details and evidence you have for the accident, the stronger your claim is for receiving compensation.

- Traumatic brain injury
