CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS

Construction work is extremely dangerous. Construction workers often mistakenly believe that their employers have taken all safety precautions and measures. Also, construction workers often mistakenly presume that their coworkers are adequately trained and all equipment is functioning properly. The reality is that construction workers are constantly injured and die due to the negligence of others. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there were 874 construction industry fatalities in 2014. The leading causes of construction site deaths were falls, electrocution, struck by object, and caught in/between.

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION

In New York State, most injured workers are prevented (by law) from suing their employers. However, the injured workers are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits provide for lifelong medical treatment for work-related injuries and awards for past and future wage replacement. An injured worker does not have to lose any time from work to be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.

THIRD PARTY ACTION

In New York, most injured workers cannot sue their employers. However, the injured worker could sue a third party responsible for his/her injuries. There are often numerous contractors working at a construction site. These contractors could be sued and held accountable for negligent acts causing injury. An injured construction worker could simultaneously pursue a workers’ compensation claim and third party action. The workers’ compensation carrier could place a lien against any third party recovery.
