Workers' compensation benefits only go so far. While they may cover a part of your income and medical expenses, they do not adequately compensate you for serious and preventable injuries or your pain and suffering.
At the personal injury firm of Smiley & Smiley, LLP, our New York City lawyers have recovered additional compensation for construction site accident victims through third-party claims. Third-party claims are personal injury actions filed against a negligent third party who is not your employer or a co-worker. These claims can be filed against building owners, general contractors, equipment manufacturers, contractors, architects and others who bear some responsibility for injuries.
