Most New York employers must have workers’ compensation insurance for their employees. Workers’ comp benefits include medical treatment for injuries and lost wage benefits.
Workers’ compensation does not compensate you for all damages incurred due to a workplace injury. Furthermore, injured workers are generally prohibited from suing their employer if they are covered by workers’ comp insurance.
In addition to workers’ comp benefits, you might be entitled to additional compensation if a third party caused your injury. Third-party claims can provide compensation for all economic damages, including all loss of income and out-of-pocket expenses. You could also receive compensation for your non-economic damages.
Third-party claims are filed when another party causes your injury because of negligence or intentional torts. Examples of third-party claims for a plumber accident include actions for defective tools and unsafe property conditions.
Additionally, you could be entitled to compensation for a claim filed under New York Labor Law Sections 200, 240, or 241. Labor laws provide additional protections for construction workers in New York City.
