Construction Accident Attorneys Serving The Bronx and All of New York City
Cement workers face many dangers, and accidents at work are common. While workers’ compensation can cover some of the medical expenses and lost wages from an injury, it often does not offer the full compensation an accident victim needs for his or her long-term physical, financial and emotional suffering.
If you are in this situation, there is hope. Depending on how your accident occurred and its cause, you may be able to sue other parties liable for your injuries, so long as they are not your employer. This is called filing a third-party claim. Only an attorney can assess whether you are eligible to file such a claim, so do not hesitate to seek legal assistance.
The injury attorneys of The Orlow Firm in New York City have more than 120 years of combined experience and have handled numerous third-party claims throughout their careers. When you work with your law firm, you will speak directly with a named partner at the firm. We believe you should expect that of any law firm that you hire for a work accident.
Evaluating Cases for Third-Party Claim Eligibility
If you are a cement worker and were injured on the job, you may be entitled to file a third-party claim against any liable party other than your employer. Such situations may include:
- Falling from scaffolding that was improperly assembled
- Injuries resulting from defective machinery
- Tripping on debris left by another subcontractor
- Suffering injuries in a car accident while driving a cement truck to a work site
