Third-Party Claims: What They Are
When you’re injured while working at a construction site, many people aren’t sure who is liable for their injuries. It can be hard to sort through the accident to know what really happened or what was the actual cause of the incident. Having an experienced team on your side can help you determine the best path forward to recover full compensation.
Jacobson Law has helped clients injured in Suffolk County, Nassau County and other areas throughout the city understand their options. We can examine your case and discuss all of the solutions for your situation. In these cases, communication with the right attorney is key.
The Benefits Of Third-Party Injury Claims
Third-party claims are different from those proceeding under New York workers’ compensation laws. In a third-party claim, the compensation you recover is not necessarily tied to your average weekly wages. While this seems like the better option than a workers’ comp claim, not every construction injury case will be eligible for a personal injury claim against the negligent third party.
We can help you determine if this is something that you can pursue as a result of your accident. It all depends on your specific case, the incident itself and the extent of your injuries. The subcontractor, project owner or equipment manufacturer could be liable. It is their job to create and maintain a safe construction zone. When that doesn’t happen, they are putting others at risk. Our firm is here to advocate for you when it matters most.
