Your Compensation in a Construction Accident Claim
The compensation you may receive will depend on a variety of factors, including: the nature of the accident, your injuries, your medical expenses, future medical expenses, your lost income or wages, and a variety of other issues. In New York personal injury cases, you have a right to pursue compensation for:
- Conscious pain and suffering
- Medical expenses (past and future)
- Lost wages (past and future)
- Disability or disfigurement
After a serious construction accident injury, an insurance company may try to offer you a quick and easy settlement to close out your case. Do not accept any settlement offer without having it reviewed by a knowledgeable construction injury attorney.
Time Limits on Construction Accident Claims
Every state has its own statute of limitations on filing a civil lawsuit for personal injuries such as construction accident injuries. In New York, you generally have two years from the date of injury to pursue a personal injury claim. However, in certain circumstances, such as where a municipal entity is at fault, the time frames may be substantially shorter. Don’t hesitate to consult with us about your case.
