Lawyers With a Shared Vision of Justice for Our Clients
Workers’ compensation benefits are generally available for workers who have been injured on construction sites. These benefits supply vital compensation to partially make up for lost wages and to pay for costly medical care. But what compensation is available for your pain, suffering and diminished earning capacity? And who can help you pursue your legal rights and compensation in all venues and from all available sources?
The New York construction accident attorneys of The Orlow Firm have handled thousands of personal injury cases, including numerous third-party claims following construction site accidents, since 1981. Our lawyers can thoroughly and skillfully prepare your third-party claim and can refer you to a qualified workers’ compensation lawyer to handle your workers’ compensation claim. To learn more about how we can help you, call (800) 504-9590 or contact us online.
Workers who are undocumented may have a higher risk of injury on the job. If you are an undocumented worker who was injured at work, you have legal rights in New York.
Third-Party Claims May Be Available for Injured Construction Workers
Workers who are hurt on construction sites might not realize that they may be able to file a lawsuit for compensation in addition to workers’ compensation benefits. Third-party claims are filed not against your employer (workers’ compensation laws prevent that), but against other negligent parties such as property owners, contractors, subcontractors and vendors.
Did a contractor from another organization cause your construction site accident injury? Did a falling object, carelessly placed item or vehicle operated by a contractor or other third party lead to injuries or your loved one’s wrongful death at a construction site? Our law firm has the experience to help you obtain the compensation you need after a serious construction accident.
