Recovering the Damages You Deserve in an Islip Construction Injury Case

Determining which damages you can recover is challenging on your own. You’ll have to calculate the value of all your losses and consider your intangible damages. Fortunately, our Islip personal injury attorneys know how to determine the value of your case.

When you work with our law firm, we can help you seek the following recoverable damages:

Economic Damages

Your economic losses are those that come with a fixed price. This category of damages is meant to compensate you for the out-of-pocket costs you incurred because of your construction accident. Economic damages you may recover include:

  • Medical bills: All your medical expenses may be recovered in your settlement. This includes the cost of ambulance trips, emergency room treatment, doctor’s appointments, follow-up care, X-rays, assistive devices, surgery, and medications.
  • Lost income: Missing time at work can significantly affect your financial well-being. If your injuries prevented you from going to your job, you can seek a payout for your lost income.
  • Reduced earning capacity: Some accident victims can never return to their pre-injury jobs. If your injury stops you from earning as much as you once could, our team can help you seek compensation for your reduced earning capacity.
  • Property damage: If your phone, car, or other personal belongings were damaged in the accident, you can demand compensation to repair or replace them.

Non-Economic Damages

You can also pursue non-economic damages after a construction site injury. Some of these intangible losses include:

  • Physical pain and suffering: Construction injuries can lead to significant pain and long recovery times. You can pursue compensation for the physical discomfort your injuries cause you.
  • Mental anguish: Many accident victims feel emotional distress after their accidents. Those suffering from anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)  linked to their accident can seek a payout. Your compensation could cover the costs of any necessary medications or mental health therapy.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life: Your injuries may prevent you from living your daily life as you once did. You may need to take a temporary or permanent break from your usual hobbies and activities. If so, we can seek compensation for this loss.

Wrongful Death Damages

The team at Trantolo & Trantolo, LLC is deeply sorry for the loss of your loved one. While we understand a settlement won’t make up for the loss of your loved one, it can help you remain financially stable.

Our wrongful death lawyers can help you pursue damages such as:

  • The costs of your loved one’s funeral and burial
  • Loss of the decedent’s income
  • Medical expenses before your loved one’s passing
  • Loss of parental nurturing and guidance your loved one would have provided to their children

While you spend time with your family, you can leave your wrongful death claim to us.

You Have a Limited Amount of Time to File Your Personal Injury Lawsuit After a Construction Incident in Islip

Accident victims must act quickly to seek the compensation they need. This is because each state sets a statute of limitations, which outlines the time you have to file your case.

In New York, CVP § 214 generally gives you three years to file your personal injury case. Per EPT § 5-4.1, you typically must file your wrongful death case within two years.

Other deadlines may apply to your case, so it’s best to get started right away. For example, if your case involves a municipality, GMU § 50-E only gives you 90 days to file a notice of your claim. When you hire our firm, we can ensure you’re aware of any applicable deadlines. Failure to file your case on time could mean you are no longer eligible to seek fair compensation.

Common Construction Accident Injuries That May Entitle You to Compensation

Construction accident injuries are often severe and sometimes fatal. Some of the types of injuries that could entitle you to a settlement include:

  • Burns
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Illnesses suffered from exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Knee injuries
  • Crush injuries
  • Traumatic amputations
  • Overexertion injuries
  • Vehicle accident injuries

Construction injuries commonly occur because of malfunctions with heavy machinery, unstable structures, lack of training, and insufficient safety equipment. If another party’s negligence caused you to suffer one of these types of accidents, we will help you seek justice.
