New York Work Injury Attorney
Workers' Compensation and Third-Party Claim Legal Representation in New York Since 1981
A large percentage of construction site accidents result from negligence committed not by a worker's employer or co-worker but by other parties (called "third parties") on and off the site, like:
- Drivers from other companies
When accidents are caused by the negligence of a worker's employer or co-worker the injured worker can only pursue workers' compensation benefits. However, when accidents are caused by the negligence of a third party the injured worker can pursue compensation both from the workers' compensation program and a third-party claim.
Workers' compensation benefits are limited to covering injured workers' medical expenses, disability expenses and a portion of lost wages. Third-party claims can go much further and often involve damages for pain and suffering.
