Construction Everywhere Often Cause Construction Site Accidents

Whether dock builder, sheet metal worker, plumber, carpenter, electrician or any construction worker safety first must always mark every work minute. But still, inevitably accidents happen in such a dangerous space performing dangerous work.

New York State statues provide very strong worker protection especially when injuries occur on construction sites. Job related accidents cover three overall classes: 1-general workplace safety 2-falls from ladders and scaffolds 3-slipping and tripping in the workplace.

Any work place injury entitles the worker to a Workers Compensation Claim automatically but prevents a lawsuit being brought against the injured worker’s employer. If a company or individual, other than the worker’s employer caused the accident as often happens, then a so called Third Party Action lawsuit can be filed within
three years of the accident.

Experienced legal analysis should review every work site accident to explore if you have a Third Party case so call Attorney John C. Dearie if you’ve suffered an injury at 212-980-0404.
