Hudson Valley Construction Accident Lawyers
Construction workers who are injured on the job are entitled to collect workers' compensation benefits for wage loss replacement and medical care. However, workers' compensation benefits are limited and do not provide full compensation for lost wages and personal injury damages. In some cases, full compensation can only be obtained by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the person or business entity that injured you.
At the Hudson Valley law firm of Catania, Mahon & Rider, PLLC, our attorneys will help you navigate the complex world of workers' compensation and personal injury law.
Can I Sue the Party That Injured Me?
While you generally cannot sue your employer or a co-worker for an on-the-job injury in New York, you can sue a third party who is responsible, under a complex framework of labor laws, for your injuries. Examples include:
- Another driver in an auto accident that occurs on the job
- A general contractor, subcontractor or a vendor working on the same job site
- The owner of the site where you are working
- The manufacturer of a defective machine or piece of construction equipment
Working on a construction site involves hazards that most other workers never encounter such as:
- Working from heights
- Working with or around dangerous equipment
- Working in hazardous work settings
If other people working on the same site don't do their jobs properly, you can be injured and injured badly. Our lawyers charge no fees unless we are successful in recovering compensation for you from the responsible third party. With offices in Orange County, we represent injured construction workers and their family members throughout the Hudson Valley.
