Third-Party Workplace Injury
New York Workers Compensation Covers Third-Party Job Injury Liability Claims
Work injuries are often complex, with numerous factors contributing to the accident or occupational illness. Perhaps you're an injured utility worker who got electrocuted when a faulty cable sparked or you suffered a back injury due to malfunctioning construction site equipment. Maybe you were run over by a distracted delivery van driver in the office parking lot or you were rear-ended by a drunk trucker while out on a sales call.
In each case, a third-party—that is, another person or entity not affiliated with your employer—is at least partially liable for your job-related injury: The faulty cable and construction equipment manufacturers, the delivery van driver's employer and the trucking company. You have workers compensation benefits coming to you to help you recover, but a 3rd party claim or lawsuit can help you recover significantly more.
