We Serve New Yorkers in Construction Accidents
Construction sites are often a disaster waiting to happen. There are so many potentially dangerous areas and situations that it is miraculous that more accidents don’t occur. Scaffolding collapses, ditch cave-ins and equipment malfunctions and accidents are only a few of the potential daily problems on construction sites. When you add in the toxic chemicals and substances used that could cause permanent damage, you are taking your life into your hands when working on a construction site.
Many employers fail to maintain proper safety standards, making it even more possible to be injured. When an individual is injured on the worksite, it is critical to get legal representation from an experienced attorney. With the help of a workers’ compensation lawyer from Katz, Leidman, Freund & Herman, you can protect your best interests when seeking compensation for damages.

Dealing with workers’ compensation can be a nightmare. The paperwork is complex, and the documentation needed for injury accidents can be extensive. It is vital that you keep every document related to your injury, no matter what it is.
