Types of Coverage Provided Under Workers’ Comp

It is important to understand your rights following a construction accident. Whether you are an injured worker or a mourning family member who has lost a loved one, our legal team is here to help. In New York, if you are injured while performing daily work tasks, you are eligible to file a workers’ compensation claim.

The benefits provided through workers’ compensation can include:

  • Full coverage of medical costs
  • Partial compensation for lost wages
  • Potential disability benefits
  • Death benefits

These benefits can also include cash benefits, supplement benefits, durable medical goods benefits, pharmacy benefits, and many others. In cases where negligence is involved - whether on your part or your employer’s - you are still entitled to workers’ comp benefits. However, this may be the only legal avenue that allows you to pursue compensation from your employer in most cases.

Third-Party Liability in Construction Accidents

Depending on the nature of your injury and accident, there may be multiple parties responsible. For example, you could bring forward a workers’ compensation claim to get financial recovery from your employer. However, in many cases this compensation doesn’t cover the extent of damages a worker suffers.

If a third party, such as an equipment manufacturer, grossly negligent supervisor, or maintenance company was in some way responsible for your accident, you could pursue a lawsuit against them in addition to your workers’ compensation claim. This allows for a wider compensation than typical compensation claims for work-related accidents.

What Damages Can Workers Recover?

When you bring a lawsuit forward against a third-party, you may be able to recover additional damages to those you can recover from a workers’ compensation claim.

These damages can include:

  • Past and future lost wages in full
  • Lost earning potential or ability
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
  • Physical therapy and additional health-related costs
  • Punitive damages in certain extreme cases
