Many employees in the construction industry know that if they are hurt on the job their employer is supposed to provide them with coverage through workers’ compensation. Although workers’ comp can help to pay for medical bills and a small portion of lost wages, it frequently isn’t enough to ensure that an injured worker remains financially safe. However, a construction accident lawsuit can provide the compensation that is needed.
Construction accident lawsuits are not filed against an employer but are instead filed against a third-party whose negligence resulted in the accident that caused the plaintiff harm. For example, if a construction worker is using a crane and the crane has a defective part, causing it to harm the worker, the accident victim can file a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the crane or the parts manufacturer. In some cases, there may be more than one negligent party.
Banville Law has helped hundreds of construction accident plaintiffs seek the compensation they need. Our legal team offers case reviews to all construction accident victims. Call now.
"Superb My child was hurt during delivery and will forever have to live with a birth injury. Banville Law made sure our family can afford her medical care." - Victoria K.
Did you know that workers’ compensation is required by law? This law was put in place to protect both injured workers and employers. Employers who provide their employees with coverage are protected because injured employees cannot file a lawsuit against them. In return, the insurance is supposed to provide the injured employee with payments for their medical bills and a portion of lost wages.
The problem for injured employees is that the insurance doesn’t cover all losses and a large percentage of initial claims are denied. Although an appeal can be filed, there is a backlog in the New York courts and it can take more than two years for a case to reach the courtroom.
Our legal team can help with both an initial workers’ compensation claim and an appeal. In addition to this, during the case review, we can also determine if you are eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit. This lawsuit is separate from the workers’ compensation claim and can provide additional compensation.
Anyone in any industry can get hurt on the job. The legal team at Banville Law completely understands how shocking and scary it is to go from perfectly healthy too so badly injured that you may no longer be able to work. Our attorneys support those hurt in a work accident by helping them pursue legal action against the responsible party.
Consulting an attorney may seem like an extreme step, however, it is likely the only way to recover full compensation for both past and future losses.

In the many decades since the automobile was first invented, millions of people have been severely injured or killed in a crash. Drivers obtain car insurance to provide coverage should an accident happen, hoping that this coverage will pay for all the medical treatments that may be required. Sadly, policy limits are often too small to pay for even a fraction of the medical expenses required by car accident victims.
A lawsuit can help car accident victims create a healthier and brighter future.

Contrary to popular opinion, many slip and fall accident victims can’t just get up and brush off their clothes, continuing on their way as though nothing has happened. The fact is that a slip and fall can cause a life-altering injury.
Under the law, property owners and those hired to manage a property must take reasonable steps to ensure all visitors are kept safe. This means that properties should be checked regularly for hazards such as:
If the person in charge fails to correct any hazards that are discovered they may be held liable for the injuries that a victim sustains while visiting the property.

Medical professionals have to study for years to earn their right to practice medicine and are required to take an oath so that are constantly reminded that they literally hold the lives of others in their hands.
But the years of study and the oath don’t prevent mistakes from being made.
Even though the vast majority of all medical professionals don’t mean to cause their patients harm, they should be held accountable for their actions. Medical malpractice lawsuits can be filed by patients who were harmed by:
It’s not always clear that medical malpractice occurred which is why it’s important to have your case reviewed by an attorney. Don’t hesitate – compensation can be recovered.
It’s normal for parents to be filled with hope when their child comes into the world. To find out that a birth injury has changed the way a child will be able to live before their life has even begun is devestating. To top it all off, a birth injury can be very expensive to treat, placing an unexpected financial strain on the family.
A birth injury lawsuit can be filed against the medical professional who caused the birth injury. Through a carefully negotiated settlement or a winning verdict in court, compensation can be provided that will help to care for a child with a birth injury for the rest of their lives.
The elderly deserve respect and the care they need, especially when they and their loved ones are paying huge sums for that care. Yet nursing homes are consistently understaffed and frequently fail to perform background checks on the employees they do have.
Abuse and neglect are sadly a common occurrence in nursing homes and when family members pressure staff for information, evidence of this lack of care frequently “gets lost”. That’s why it’s best to contact an experienced attorney if you suspect that abuse or neglect is impacting your loved one’s life.
Understanding the common signs of neglect and abuse is important. This includes:
