Construction is a notoriously dangerous industry. As a result, those who work in the construction industry tend to be tough and may hesitate to ask for help if they’ve been injured or become sick – simply because they are used to fighting through pain and danger in the course of their duties. However, it is important to understand that seeking legal guidance in the wake of sustaining work-related injury or illness is not a sign of weakness. It is a sign of self-respect.

The knowledgeable Buffalo, NY construction accident lawyer team at Hurwitz, Whitcher & Molloy, LLP has extensive experience navigating the legal system on behalf of injured construction workers. It is important to work with a firm that specializes in both personal injury and workers’ compensation law in the aftermath of a construction injury, as you may need to file both kinds of claims related to the harm you have suffered.

Legal Recourse for Injured Construction Workers

Most of the time, construction workers who suffer harm while engaging in work-related activity are in a position to file for workers’ compensation benefits – and may be in a position to file a personal injury claim as well. Workers’ compensation benefits are made available to most workers who are classified as either part-time or full-time employees. Unless independent contractors have been incorrectly classified as non-employees, they are generally ineligible for these benefits. As long as a worker’s harm occurred during work-related activity, these benefits are made eligible regardless of what caused the injury or whose fault the injurious circumstances were. Notable exceptions to this no-fault approach include injuries caused by workers who were starting fights, were drunk or high when injured, or who were injuring themselves on purpose.

Personal injury claims may also be pursued against others responsible for the injury in question. The only third-party who is automatically insulated from potential liability is the employer of a construction worker who is eligible for workers’ compensation benefits.

I became a client of the Hurwitz firm in May of 1997 due to injuries I received while I was a meat cutter at I. Isenberg Meats in Buffalo, New York. Since my first encounter with your firm and up until the present day, I have been entirely satisfied with the way your firm has treated me.
