Third-Party Claims

Third-Party Construction Injury Claims

While New York employees typically cannot sue their employers for injuries they sustain in work-related accidents, workers may still be able to recover money beyond what’s provided by workers’ compensation. In a third-party claim, the injured worker or surviving family brings a lawsuit against at-fault parties aside from the victim’s employer.

At Eisenberg & Baum, we seek all means of obtaining compensation for our clients. While other attorneys may simply help you file a workers’ compensation claim, we think outside the box to discover all roads to getting you full and timely compensation.

Our New York Accident Attorneys Can Help

Third-party suits are especially prevalent in serious or fatal construction accidents, as a variety of parties can be involved at any given job site. Common parties that may be held responsible in a New York construction site accident include:

  • General contractors
  • Subcontractors
  • Property owners
  • Property managers or caretakers
  • Manufacturers of unsafe construction equipment

New York law is particularly helpful in permitting workers to bring third-party claims when they suffer injuries from scaffolding accidents and ladder accidents. At Eisenberg & Baum, our New York construction accident attorneys can help you find all avenues of compensation allowed under law.
