Documents and Evidence Our Team Might Request
Proving the physical and financial impact of your construction accident can be daunting on your own, especially if you are struggling to cope with the physical consequences of the incident. You do not have to do it alone. A construction accident lawyer serving Westbury on our team might be able to help you obtain the following items that help prove your injuries, their cause, and their costs:
- Accident reports
- Incident reports
- Medical records
- Medical bills
- Salary history
- Injury photos
- Witness statements
It can be tricky to accurately calculate the cost of your injuries. The evidence we compile on your behalf might help us prove the cause of your accident and the financial toll the incident took on your and your family.
We focus on third-party personal injury claims, and while we do not directly handle workers’ compensation cases, our team can work with your workers’ compensation attorney toward your recovery. When you are ready to put us to work on your case, contact the case assessment team at Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. by calling (516) 451-7900.
Understand How Time Impacts Your Lawsuit
You might be able to recover the expenses and income losses you sustained as the result of a construction zone accident. While the state makes it possible for you to do so, it also imposes a statute of limitations restricting the time you have to file.
This means your construction zone injury lawsuit will have time limits the law requires you to respect and adhere to. According to New York Civil Practice Law & Rules (CVP) §214, you generally have three years to file a personal injury lawsuit. The timeline for filing your lawsuit might be subject to change if, for instance, you are pursuing a municipality for compensation.
Similarly, if a loved one was fatally injured in a construction accident in Westbury, New York Estates, Powers & Trusts (EPT) §5-4.1 gives you a two-year window to file a wrongful death lawsuit. These are not the only situations where the time to bring an action may be shortened. In order to avoid missing your deadline, call us as soon as possible following your accident.
