Types of Damages You Can Recover in a Construction Accident Case in Babylon

Personal injury victims in Babylon are eligible to recover a range of economic and non-economic damages. You could seek fair compensation for:

Economic Losses

These are the out-of-pocket losses you suffered. Economic damages generally include:

  • Medical expenses, such as the cost of emergency transportation, doctor’s appointments, X-rays, medications, and more
  • Lost income if you missed time at work to recover
  • Reduced earning capacity if you are no longer able to earn as much money as you once did because of your injuries
  • Property damage, if any of your personal items were damaged in the accident

Non-Economic Losses

You may be eligible to recover compensation for your intangible losses. These often include:

  • Physical pain and suffering caused by your injuries
  • Emotional distress, such as accident-related anxiety and depression
  • Loss of enjoyment of life, if you have to miss out on certain activities because of your injuries
  • Reduced quality of life

Wrongful Death Damages

If you lost someone you love in a construction accident, our team offers our condolences to you and your family. We will help you hold the responsible party accountable for their actions. Some of the damages we could recover for you include:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Fatal injury-related medical bills
  • Loss of support and services
  • The decedent’s conscious pain and suffering
  • Loss of financial support
  • Loss of parental guidance

Your loved one’s personal representative is the only party eligible to file a lawsuit on their behalf. We can help you identify the personal representative so you can start seeking justice.

Filing Your Case by the Statute of Limitations Deadline Is Necessary to Recover Compensation

According to the statute of limitations, CVP § 214, you generally have three years to file a personal injury lawsuit. If your loved one passed away, EPT § 5-4.1 generally allows only two years to file your wrongful death lawsuit.

Since you have such a limited timeframe, we recommend you get started on your case as soon as possible. The earlier you bring your case to our team, the better. This gives us time to investigate your case, speak to witnesses, and gather evidence before it becomes unavailable.

Who Can We Hold Responsible for Compensating You After a Babylon Construction Accident?

There could be more than one liable party in your construction accident case in Babylon. Our legal team will investigate your case to prove that another party’s negligence caused your injuries. We may find any of the following parties responsible:

  • A manufacturer of parts or equipment used on the construction site
  • Contractors or subcontractors
  • Architects
  • Engineers
  • Vendors
  • Property owners
  • Drivers or heavy machinery operators

We’ll gather evidence to prove liability, including:

  • Photos and videos
  • The accident report
  • Your medical records
  • Witness statements
  • Expert witness statements

If you have any information related to your case, such as witness phone numbers or pictures of your injuries, bring them to our team. This will help us build a strong evidence file.

You Could File a Workers’ Compensation Claim to Recover a Settlement After a Construction Accident in Babylon

A workers’ compensation claim allows you to seek benefits if you sustained a work injury. Workers’ comp claims are not fault-based, so we would not need to prove negligence to help you seek benefits.

However, workers’ compensation claims can be tricky, because if your insurance carrier or employer denies the claim, you won’t receive the money you need. According to the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board, you could recover money for your health care expenses and lost wages. If your loved one passed away, you could also be awarded survivor benefits.

Steps to Take After Your Construction Accident in Babylon

If you were injured in a construction incident, your first step should always be receiving medical treatment. Once your injuries are stable and you have a plan to care for them, we recommend:

  • Avoiding social media. Anything you share online can be taken out of context by the liable party or insurance companies. To avoid having your posts used against you, stay off social media until after we win or settle your case.
  • Letting us communicate with everyone involved in your case. Our team does not want you to jeopardize your case by misspeaking or accidentally accepting blame for your injuries. Let our experienced team speak to everyone involved.
  • Writing down how you feel. It can be difficult to remember your emotions or the way your injuries felt right after the accident. However, we will need to understand this information as we pursue your non-economic damages. Documenting your thoughts can help you recall them if we need to reference this information.
  • Hiring our team. We can get started on your case immediately after your accident, and we never settle for less than you deserve.
