The above list does not include all hazards an ironworker faces or how a worker could be injured. Ironworker accidents can have life-changing consequences for workers and their families. Regardless of how an ironworking injury occurred, it is important to receive all benefits and compensation you are entitled to receive by law.
An ironworker can sustain minor injuries in an accident. However, many suffer severe injuries that require extensive medical treatment and lost time from work.
Common ironworker accident injuries include, but are not limited to:
An ironworker injured on the job should seek immediate medical treatment. It is essential to report all injuries, regardless of their severity. Reporting ironworker accidents and seeking prompt medical care helps protect your right to compensation for your injuries.
The party responsible for your ironworking injury depends on the facts and circumstances of your case. If you were injured in an ironworking accident while on the job, you should be covered by workers’ compensation insurance. Most employers in New York must have workers’ comp insurance coverage for their employees.
Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system that provides medical treatment and loss of income benefits for injured workers. Employees covered by workers’ comp typically cannot sue their employers for additional compensation.
However, there could be other claims that could apply to your ironworker accident. You could have a third-party claim if your injury was caused by another party’s negligence or intentional torts. For example, you might be able to sue a manufacturer if your ironworking injury was caused by a defective tool.
Third-party claims provide additional compensation and can be filed simultaneously with a workers’ comp claim. You could be entitled to compensation for damages not covered by workers’ comp benefits, including economic and non-economic damages.
Additionally, New York Labor Laws provide additional protections for construction workers. You might have a claim against one or more parties under Labor Law Sections 200, 240, and 241.
Our Bronx ironworker accident attorneys will analyze your case to determine all claims you are entitled to file. We’ll identify all parties liable for your injuries and aggressively pursue each source of compensation.
The type of claim determines the filing deadline. We strongly recommend contacting our law office as soon as possible to avoid losing the right to file a claim under one or more causes of action.
