Third-Party Construction Accident Claims

Yet, you can commence a lawsuit against third parties to recover compensation for injury-related expenses. Third parties may include: property owners, contractors, subcontractors, among others.

New York Construction Law

In order to deliver successful outcomes for injured workers, an attorney must have an understanding of New York Labor Law Sections 200, 240 and/or 241(6). Knowing how and when to use New York’s Labor Laws allows our attorneys to maximize an injured worker’s recovery to obtain financial compensation for present injuries and future care.
