Different Types of Construction Accidents and Lawsuits

  • Personal Injury Claim

The personal injury claim is made by the injured construction worker himself. To win the claim, the injured party must prove that the accident has taken place because of negligence of a third party, who is not the employer of the injured worker (see worker’s compensation claim section below). Said negligence must be the cause of the injury. Our construction accident attorneys in Brooklyn, as well as throughout Long Island and the five boroughs, have handled many personal injury cases under New York’s Labor Laws. This experience can be the difference between getting compensated and getting nothing.

  • Workers’ Compensation Claim

Usually, construction workers are covered under the workers’ compensation insurance provided by their employers. This kind of lawsuit can be initiated by a worker only if he proves that an injury has occurred while working.

After the claim is accepted, the injured person can receive the benefits of workers’ compensation as outlined in the policy. With the help of a good worker’s compensation attorney, you can claim both workmen’s compensation and open a third-party case to increase your compensation for losses.

  • Death Claim

This claim is made when a worker dies in a construction accident. It is made by the family of the deceased and is known as a Wrongful Death Claim.
