Hopewell Junction Work Accident Information

Have You Been In a Construction Site Accident?

If you've been in a construction site accident, whether you working at the construction site or a passerby, you may have certain remedies owed to you from the commercial business that owns the site and/or the entity operating out of the site. A skilled Hopewell Junction construction site accident attorney will be able to review the merits of your case and determine if you are entitled to any damages or monies from the owner of the property or the controller of the site.

Types of Construction Site Accidents

While accidents can happen anywhere, a construction site is ripe with opportunity for an accident to occur. There are plenty of heavy machinery and hazardous materials around a construction site that can be the cause of an accident, as well as workers who have to work high off the ground or sometimes underground. No matter the accident on a construction site, an attorney will be able to help you receive the compensation you deserve.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

The Importance of a Good Consultation

The goal of an initial consultation is to find an attorney you are comfortable working with and someone who can help you understand your options under the law. Seek to understand the relevant legal experience the attorney brings to your case. While it is not realistic to expect an attorney to resolve your legal issue during an initial consultation, you should gain a level of comfort with his/her ability to do so. A good consultation can clarify issues, raise pertinent questions and considerations for your case, and help you make an informed decision towards resolving your legal issue.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney's track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
