The Attorney Advantage
Some construction workers are limited by law to receiving only workers’ compensation for their construction injuries. However, in many cases, workers can also recover damages from partially or completely responsible parties, who are not their employer, for causing their injuries, based upon theories of negligence, product liability and a special section of New York law known as the Labor Law.
If you were hurt due to inadequate job safety, inadequate site safety or defective tools or equipment, you may be able to file a personal injury claim against the manufacturer. You also may be able to recover damages from the owner of the site and the general contractor. The responsible party may be held liable for damages, including medical bills, loss of wages, and pain and suffering.
In the event that you are injured at work, you can apply for workers’ compensation benefits. But you may not know that you may also be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits in addition to workers’ compensation If you are the victim of a construction accident, contact the experienced construction accident lawyers at Greene & Reid Injury Lawyers today.
