On-the-job injuries are often looked at solely as “workers’ compensation claims.” But this limits an injured worker to recovering relatively meager compensation under an administrative court system.
At Dankner Milstein, P.C., our workplace injury lawyers will thoroughly investigate your injury claim and look at potential third parties that may have been responsible for your injuries. Third parties include any individual or business that is not your employer or a co-worker. If you were injured by a third party such as the manufacturer of a defective machine or the driver of another vehicle while you are driving for work, you may have a claim.
In New York, third-party work injury claims are independent of any workers’ compensation proceedings and can include additional compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Additionally, the New York State Labor Law provides certain workers who are injured on the job with guaranteed compensation against owners and subcontractors under specific fact situations, even if the worker was at fault.
