Brooklyn Construction Accident Attorney
Brooklyn residents know that construction is everywhere—and construction site injuries are unfortunately common, both for workers and for passers-by who happen to be nearby when something goes wrong.
If you have been injured or suffered the loss of a loved one due to a construction accident, a Brooklyn construction accident attorney might be able to help you seek the just compensation to which you are entitled.
One particularly common type of injury suffered at construction sites is known as a crush injury. Because of the large mass of steel and hazardous equipment at many Brooklyn construction sites, crush injuries might be the most common injuries suffered at construction zones.
A crush injury is an injury sustained as a result of being crushed by an item from a construction area. Some injuries are relatively minor and result only in bruising, while others cause more serious injuries that take a long time to heal, or may never fully recover. Some crush injuries result in catastrophic injuries such as loss of limbs, spinal cord trauma, paralysis, compression of nerves and blood vessels, or even death.
It is not unusual for crush injuries to result when a victim is pinned down by heavy fallen debris for several hours before the material can be moved away and he or she can be rescued. This kind of pronged trauma can result not only in permanent physical injuries, but emotional and psychological trauma as well.
It is imperative that you contact a Brooklyn accident attorney soon after suffering such an injury, as waiting too long might lead to the loss or deterioration of important evidence and difficulty in proving your claims.
