Third party claims for construction site injuries

If you work on a construction site in New York City, you know you run the risk of injury from various causes. With the recent increase in construction accidents, you may have concerns about your options if an injury leaves you with mounting medical expenses and a decreased ability to work.

Many people assume a work injury means they can only get workers' compensation. On one hand, it can be quicker and easier to obtain than getting a legal judgment or settlement. On the other, you end up facing limitations in the extent of benefits, which may fall short of what you actually need.

An out-of-control driver is a negligent driver

You were at your local coffee place when all of a sudden a car comes crashing through the building and hits you. You were driving your normal route to work when all of a sudden the driver next to you crashes into you and forces you both off the road. You were walking in your neighborhood when all of a sudden a car was on top of you. All of these accident examples have one thing in common; they were caused by out-of-control drivers. According to the state of New York, an out-of-control driver is a negligent driver.

If you fall victim to a driver who was not able to maintain control of his or her vehicle, any damages you sustained in the accident may be recoverable. It does not matter if they are economic or noneconomic in nature. If the damages are deemed legally recoverable in accordance with state law, you may pursue relief through legal means.

Slip and falls from inadequate lighting

There are many ways for people to trip and fall around a commercial property. Some of the most common reasons include walking on stairs, walking over a slippery surface and exiting a vehicle. 

However, one reason that many individuals overlook is inadequate lighting. It is the responsibility of the property owner to ensure every area of a building has sufficient lighting. Some buildings have inferior designs where no light fixtures could possibly fit into a certain area. In other cases, a lightbulb went out and the owner failed to address it. In either instance, it is important for the injured party to consider how lighting played a role in the slip and fall accident
