Workers’ Compensation for Construction Accidents
If you have been injured in a construction accident, workers’ compensation can provide you with wage replacement and medical benefits. But a large percentage of construction site accidents result from negligence committed by someone other than an employer or co-worker. These injured workers may have additional opportunities to pursue money damages through third-party claims.
If you were injured in an on-the-job construction site accident in New York, contact The Orlow Firm to get started on both workers’ compensation and third-party claims. Lawyers Adam Orlow, Brian Orlow and Steven Orlow have referred numerous construction workers to experienced workers’ compensation lawyers and have fully and aggressively handled numerous third-party claims following construction industry accidents.

Do You Have a Third-Party Construction Accident Claim?
Don’t take your employer’s word that your rights stop once your workers’ compensation claim is finalized. A large percentage of construction site accidents result from negligence committed not by a worker’s employer or co-worker, but by other parties (called “third parties”) on and off the site, including:
- Drivers from other companies
When an accident is caused by the negligence of a worker’s employer or co-worker, the victim can pursue only workers’ compensation benefits. However, when an accident is caused by the negligence of a third party the injured worker can pursue compensation both from the workers’ compensation program and a third-party claim.
Workers’ compensation benefits are limited to covering injured workers’ medical expenses, disability expenses and a portion of lost wages. Third-party claims can go much further and often involve damages for pain and suffering.
