Queens Construction Worker Injured on the Job

Queens construction site accidents are unfortunately all too common, and can sometimes lead to devastating injuries for workers. Without proper representation, these workers may not receive the compensation they deserve.

People work honest jobs in order to earn for the important things in their lives. People are motivated by a lot of things – perhaps a career goal, or to help sustain their families, or to simply work because it’s their passion. However, as in the case of this particular client, sometimes work is a matter of helping families survive day-to-day living.

This particular Orlow Firm client has a son with cerebral palsy and a wife waiting for him to go back from construction work. Unfortunately, after lifting heavy objects from a basement, his arm was crushed by two metal poles. There were broken scaffolds around him, and his nose and arms were bleeding. But accidents happen, so this particular client of ours felt he had to “man up.”

However, the following night, the pain was too much to bear and he had to go to the hospital. It was only then that he was informed that his arm was actually broken, and not simply sprained. Unfortunately, our client does not have enough knowledge about how the law may help him get compensation for his injuries, and this is where The Orlow Firm steps in.

Our firm made sure to walk our client through all the processes involved and explained everything thoroughly. We explained why it was safer not to talk about legal matters without our representative with him. As accidents tend to be a sensitive case, we made sure to contact him frequently through the phone or through regular visits.

In the end, he was provided with compensation and was back to work after a period of recovery. We made sure his son with cerebral palsy also had a van for quick travel and transport.

At The Orlow Firm, we can guarantee our clients that they will be kept up to date with everything that is happening to their case. We make sure to present all available options, their perks and potential effects, before asking their decision about what to do with the case.
