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 Construction Accident attorney 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.

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.
