CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS IN NEW YORK
Though we’ve come a long way in construction site safety over the years, the truth is, construction sites will never be completely hazard-free, and at times, needlessly so. Some of the most common types and causes of construction accidents are as follows:
- Defective ladders
- Scaffold collapses
- Burns (due to heat or chemicals)
- Defective machinery
- Negligent supervisors
- Trench cave-ins
- Trip or slip and falls
- Crane or forklift errors
If you’ve been injured on a construction site, you should notify your supervisor at once, seek immediate medical treatment, and document the facts surrounding the incident by obtaining:
- Pictures of the unsafe construction site conditions
- Witness statements
- Video of your accident
- Medical documentation concerning your injury
You should then speak with an experienced New York City & Westchester County construction site accident lawyer as soon as you can. Our firm can file either a workers’ compensation claim or a third-party claim on your behalf.
FILING YOUR CLAIM
If you’ve been injured on the job as a construction worker, you will most likely file a workers’ compensation claim. Workers’ compensation is a form of no-fault insurance that helps cover the cost of a worker’s medical bills and a portion of his or her lost wages until he or she can return to work once again. That said, workers’ compensation may not have covered the entire cost of your injury, in which case, we may file a third-party claim on your behalf.
A third-party claim is filed against liable third parties that are not your employer, such as an independent contractor or a property owner. In a third-party claim, we can sue for maximum compensation to help cover the entire cost of your injury.

José Báez is an excellent Attorney. He helped me through one of the toughest times in my life. He gave me support and was very professional and of high quality. José was always accessible and always returns my calls without delay. I just can’t say enough about José Báez. Anybody who’s been injured in a truck accident, or any other accident should definitely hire José Báez. I strongly recommend Mr. Báez.
- Elizabeth S.
Not only have I had the pleasure of working alongside Jose, but I’ve also been on the receiving end of his handling of the transference of my father’s estate. Jose and the Baez Legal Group demonstrated a kind of versatility, accountability, and dedication rarely seen outside of large international law firms. He handles a wide variety of cases with seeming ease, often surprising both his clients and I with the scope of his knowledge of different legal disciplines. Jose is not one of the myriads of lawyers that always seem too busy to allocate the proper amount of care and time to their clients; in fact, he was often in the habit of reaching out first, even if just to see how we’re doing. Should you wish to receive an unprecedented amount of excellence in the handling of your case, the Baez Legal Group should be your first and only resort.

Jose stuck with me in a very difficult case that many other lawyers would not even take on. It was a three-year battle and luckily with Jose’s help I was not charged criminally. Jose pays very close attention to details and his responses to the opposing side were thorough and full of substance.
