New York Worker’s Compensation provides many benefits for workers, but severely limits situations where an employee can sue their employer.   This is why it is essential to contact an experienced NYC Construction Accident Lawyer immediately to find out if you meet these exceptions.  At Wittenstein & Wittenstein’s Queens offices in Forest Hills, we offer free consultations for Construction Accidents for residents of New York City (Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island, The Bronx, Manhattan) and Nassau County Long Island.


It’s important that you hire an experienced top-notch Personal Injury Attorney that has handled many construction cases.  You will also need a Worker’s Compensation Attorney to assist you with collecting money for your medical bills, lost earnings and out-of-pocket expenses.  The attorneys will investigate you accident and ascertain whether you have an exception to the Worker’s Compensation Law that allows you to sue your employer and/or whether a third party is responsible for your injury.  An example of a third party claim in a Construction Accident would be if a scaffold company did not properly erect the scaffold.  Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) violations will also be investigated.
