There isn’t a day that goes by in New York where reporters don’t tell the latest story about a construction worker who was seriously injured or who died in an accident while at work. The majority of these accidents involve:
While workers’ compensation should cover the medical treatments that are required by the injured worker, claim approval isn’t guaranteed. In fact, a large percentage of these claims are simply denied by the insurance companies, usually for a simple mistake made on a claim form or because an employer is contesting a claim. It doesn’t matter to them if the claim is valid – the reality is they train their adjusters to save the company money.
Our legal team can help you get your workers’ comp claim denied and we can also determine if you are eligible for a construction accident lawsuit. Even if the workers’ comp claim is approved, it won’t cover all losses, but a lawsuit can. Contact our Long Island personal injury law firm to learn more about the legal process.

For many, slipping and falling isn’t that big of a deal – until they fall and seriously injure themselves. Then, while dealing with extreme pain and emotional turmoil, they somehow have to figure out how to pay for expensive medical bills, often while being forced to take time away from work.
That’s why premises liability laws exist. In the majority of slip and fall cases, a hazard such as a broken sidewalk or step exists and it is this hazard which sends the victim tumbling. It is the responsibility of the property owner and managers of every property to do everything they can to discover hazards and fix them. If the issue can’t be fixed immediately, then they must put up signs warning visitors about the slip and fall hazard so that it can be avoided.
Proving that an issue existed and that the person responsible knew or should have known about it can be difficult, which is why it’s so important to work with a slip and fall lawyer. Our legal team at Banville Law is well versed on premises liability law and strives to stay on top of any changes to that law. We’ve helped hundred recover the compensation that they need to move forward after a slip and fall accident and we can help you.
