Injured construction workers might be able to file a lawsuit

Construction workers who are injured at work often have a difficult road to recovery. In some cases, this comes with considerable time off that can mean income suddenly stops. This can make covering bills difficult until the income is started again.

Injured workers will usually need to turn to workers' compensation to get their medical bills and lost wages covered. There are some instances in which workers' compensation won't be the avenue that has to be pursued.

When a construction worker is injured because of a defective product, such as a malfunctioning power tool, he or she might choose to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer. There is a chance that this might be able to happen in conjunction with a workers' compensation claim. If the lawsuit is successful, the workers' compensation insurer might opt to try to recover what it paid. We can discuss this possibility with you so that you can prepare for it.

We realize that you might have a lot of things going through your mind right now. Your concern about your health might be at the top of this list. While that is understandable, we need you to realize that you are bound by time limits set forth in New York law. This means you need to take action quickly so that your right to seek compensation isn't taken away.

There are a lot of things that can determine what options you have in these cases. We can discuss them with you and help you decide what course of action you need to take to rectify your situation.
