Damages You Can Recover If You Were Injured in a Brookhaven Construction Accident

Our personal injury attorneys will assess your case to determine your recoverable damages. While each case is unique, some of the damages we’ve recovered for past construction accident clients include:

Economic Damages

Your economic damages are those that cost you a financial value. They include:

  • Lost income, such as the money you could not earn because you were out of work recovering
  • Reduced earning capacity, if your injuries prevent you from working the same job you did before your accident
  • Medical bills, including all current and ongoing costs to treat your injuries
  • Property damage, such as your car, cell phone, or other personal belongings that were lost or damaged in the accident

Non-Economic Damages

You can seek a payout for your intangible losses, too. Some examples of recoverable non-economic damages in construction accident cases include:

  • Physical pain and suffering, for the pain you endured because of your injuries
  • Emotional distress, especially if you now suffer from anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Loss of enjoyment of life, if your injuries cause you to miss out on your favorite hobbies or usual routine
  • Scarring and disfigurement, if your injuries cause permanent scarring or changes to your body

Your Legal Options If You Were Injured in a Construction Incident

Your options for pursuing compensation generally depend on the details of your case. We can explain which option may be the best for you when you get in touch with us. Some construction accident victims are eligible to:

File a Workers’ Compensation Claim

Construction workers who were hurt on the job may be able to submit a workers’ compensation claim for the money they need. According to the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board, your claim may cover the following:

  • Medical care
  • Lost income
  • Survivor benefits for those who lost a loved one in a fatal accident

Filing this type of claim can be complicated, but our team is here to guide you. We’ll collect the required evidence and help you complete all the necessary paperwork.

File a Third-Party Case

You may also have the option to sue the liable party directly. In this type of case, your lawyer must collect proof of the at-fault party’s negligence to help you hold them accountable and recover compensation. We can file a fault-based case against:

  • The owner of the construction site
  • Contractors
  • Architects
  • Engineers
  • Construction equipment manufacturers

You Don’t Have Long to File Your Brookhaven Construction Injury Case

Each state has laws called the statute of limitations that outline the time you have to file an injury lawsuit. For cases in Brookhaven, you typically have three years to file a personal injury lawsuit, according to CVP § 214.

If your loved one passed away in a construction site accident, you typically have two years to file your case, per EPT § 5-4.1. Because of these time constraints, getting started on your case as soon as possible is in your best interest. The sooner you hire our team, the more time we have to gather evidence, speak to witnesses, and complete all the required paperwork.

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Broken bones
  • Strains, sprains, and fractures
  • Electrocutions
  • Traumatic amputations
