Employer Liability/Supervisor Negligence

Employer / Supervisor Liability for Construction Accident Injuries

If your employer or supervisor caused you injury, you may be wrestling with difficult questions about how you’re going to pay your medical bills and provide for your family.

You may be aware that New York’s workers’ compensation is designed to help injured workers by paying medical bills and cash benefits. An employee’s workers’ comp coverage is a tradeoff: It financially protects the worker, but also precludes him or her from suing the employer in most — but not all — instances.

Although employers are typically shielded from liability via workers’ compensation immunity, injured construction workers often do have legal opportunities to secure money beyond worker’s comp benefits.

Here are a few instances in which construction accidents may result in a personal injury lawsuit:

  • Scaffolding falls and accidents
  • Ladder falls
  • Wrongful death accidents
  • Accidents caused by a third party

Our New York Accident Attorneys Can Help

The circumstances of each accident are different. At Eisenberg & Baum, our New York construction accident attorneys can investigate your accident and discover all the potential avenues of compensation for your injury.

A large part of a construction foreman’s job is to make sure work is done safely. Because following proper safety precautions can take time, supervisors sometimes disregard them and needlessly expose their workers to danger.

Our attorneys can help investigate the cause of your construction accident and help you explore all your options for recovering money, both in and out of the workers’ comp system.
