You Must File Your Oyster Bay Construction Injury Case on Time

If you plan to file a personal injury lawsuit, you typically must submit it within three years, according to CVP § 214. You have even less time to file a wrongful death lawsuit. The statute of limitations, EPT § 5-4.1, gives you two years to file.

Because of these legal deadlines, you should not delay in getting started on your case. We encourage you to reach out to our firm as soon as you are able  so we have time to investigate your case, speak to witnesses, and negotiate for the settlement you deserve before time runs out.

Our Firm Determines Who Is Liable for Your Construction Accident Case

We must prove liability before we can recover the settlement you deserve. Our team will investigate your case to prove the at-fault party owes you compensation. Parties we may hold accountable include:

  • The owner of the construction site
  • Contractors or subcontractors
  • Materials suppliers
  • Architects and engineers
  • Product manufacturers
  • Construction equipment manufacturers or maintenance companies

Our team will also explain your options for filing a workers’ compensation claim if we believe this legal route will result in the compensation you deserve.

Gathering Evidence of Your Construction Accident in Oyster Bay

At Trantolo & Trantolo, LLC, we handle all aspects of your case, including collecting evidence. Some of the evidence we will gather to prove your case includes:

  • Your medical records and medical bills
  • Statements from eyewitnesses
  • Statements from expert witnesses like economists, doctors, and accident scene reconstructionists
  • Photos from the accident scene
  • Surveillance camera footage
  • Bills, invoices, and receipts related to your accident damages
  • The police accident report

If you can collect any of this evidence at the accident scene, save it and bring it to us. However, do not push yourself to collect evidence. Our team will handle this on your behalf.

What to Do After Your Construction Incident

Taking the following steps can protect your right to compensation after a construction accident:

  • See a doctor right away. This helps us link your injuries to the accident.
  • Avoid discussing the details of your accident with anyone other than your legal team. You don’t want to say anything that could jeopardize your case.
  • Stay off social media. Anything you post can be taken out of context and used against you by the insurance company.
  • Attend any follow-up doctor’s appointments. This benefits your health and gives us a record of all the treatments you needed.
  • Record how you feel physically and mentally. Try to recall any details you can, as this can help us substantiate your need for both economic and non-economic damages. It may help to write down how you feel so we can use this as evidence later.
