Were You Hurt On The Job?
Even with the continued advances in workplace safety, construction work still can be very dangerous. This is especially true when work needs to be done in high places. Many of the most common accidents on construction sites involve:
- Falling debris, material or equipment
The special nature of the danger posed by working at height has been recognized by laws such as Labor Law Section 240 which covers responsibility for accidents involving ladders and scaffolding.
We also assist construction workers who were injured in all other types of worksite accidents such as:
- Heavy equipment accidents
- Nail gun accidents
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Trench collapses
- Crane accidents
While most accidents that happen on construction sites can be resolved exclusively through the workers’ compensation system, some may involve third parties. Our firm assists injured construction workers with all manner of third-party claims.
What Is A Third-Party Claim?
Apart from workers’ compensation, injured workers can pursue compensation from outside parties who may have caused their injuries. If, for example, you were injured while driving for work, the other driver would be known as a third party. You could pursue compensation through a workers’ compensation claim and through a lawsuit against the driver.
