Workers Compensation

Workers Compensation

If you are injured in the workplace you have an automatic entitlement to workers’ compensation benefits. However, in a construction related accident you often have more than just a workers’ compensation claim. Specifically you may have the basis for a third-party lawsuit in addition to the workers’ compensation claim. Every Bronx Construction worker injured on a construction site should always reach out to a law firm such as ours to fully explore whether there is a third-party case as a result of a construction related accident in addition to the workers’ compensation claim.

Third-Party Lawsuit

Third Party Lawsuit

Third-party lawsuits are common in Bronx Construction-related accidents and only an accident attorney fully familiar with construction-related lawsuits will be able to make a proper determination. The third-party lawsuit is not limited in the categories of damages that the workers’ compensation claim is. In other words, a third-party lawsuit entitles the injured worker to assert claims for compensation for all aspects of damages (depending upon the specifics of the given case) past medical expenses, future medical expenses, past lost earnings, future lost earnings and both past pain and suffering and future pain and suffering.

Many injured construction workers do not even know that they have the basis for a third-party lawsuit when injured on a Bronx construction site. This is due to the fact that most of these lawsuits turn not on an active fault, but rather a violation of a statute. Furthermore, the parties that are typically named are both the owner and general contractor (or construction manager) of the job site, even though these parties may not have directly contributed to the happening of the accident. Both the owner and general contractor must comply with Section 240 and Section 241(6) of the New York State Labor law.
