Third-Party Lawsuits in New York
While New York employees typically cannot sue their employers for injuries they sustain in work-related accidents, workers may still be able to recover money beyond what's provided by workers' compensation. In a third-party claim, the injured worker or surviving family brings a lawsuit against at-fault parties aside from the victim's employer.
At Simon Eisenberg & Baum, we seek all means of obtaining compensation for our clients. While other attorneys may simply help you file a workers' compensation claim, we think outside the box to discover all roads to getting you full and timely compensation.

Third-Party Liability in Construction Accidents
Third-party suits are especially prevalent in serious or fatal construction accidents, as a variety of parties can be involved at any given job site. Common parties that may be held responsible in a New York construction site accident include:
- General contractors
- Property owners
- Property managers or caretakers
- Manufacturers of unsafe construction equipment
New York law is particularly helpful in permitting workers to bring third-party claims when they suffer injuries from scaffolding accidents and ladder accidents. At Simon Eisenberg & Baum, our construction accident lawyers can help you find all avenues of compensation allowed under law.
