The Importance of Hiring a Construction Accident Attorney in New York
Construction accidents can cause serious and life-changing injuries. During the insurance claims process, an insurance company may not offer as much compensation as your injuries are worth. Insurance companies like to save money by underestimating client injuries and denying valid claims without reason. You may need an attorney to help you negotiate with a claims adjuster a fair amount for your injuries and losses. An attorney can take over the claims process while you focus on healing from your construction accident injuries.
Common Construction Accidents and Injuries in New York
The most common construction site accidents are preventable. Injuries and fatalities happen when someone is careless or reckless at a construction site. Common accidents include:
- Crane collapses
