Our team of attorneys works together to maximize your benefits.
If you have suffered a workplace injury and the injury was a result of the negligence of someone other than your co-employee or employer, you may be entitled to pursue a claim against that “third party.” This claim is separate and apart from your workers’ compensation claim.
Miller & Caggiano, LLP, has a network of attorneys who work together to maximize both your workers’ compensation benefits in conjunction with pursuing a lawsuit against the individual or entity that caused your unfortunate accident. The damages we secure on your behalf for this third-party lawsuit would be over and above your workers’ compensation benefits.
Our team of attorneys at Miller & Caggiano, LLP, work tirelessly to maximize your benefits.
Construction Site Injuries
Construction work is dangerous employment that requires workers to perform hazardous tasks on a daily basis. This includes working from heights, excavation, repair and maintenance of infrastructure with the use of power tools and equipment. The most common injuries on a construction site are usually a result of falls from a height, being struck by a falling object, being caught between objects and electrocution.
Motor Vehicle Accidents In The Course Of Employment
If you sustained injuries as a result of a motor vehicle accident while in the course of employment, you may be entitled to pursue a lawsuit against the negligent party (other than your employer). In this day and age, many employees find themselves driving a motor vehicle as part of their daily job duties. This puts them at risk for injury as a result of a motor vehicle accident. If you have sustained injuries as a result of a motor vehicle accident in the course of employment, Miller & Caggiano, LLP, is here to assist. There are many different and unique legal aspects that must be considered when pursuing a lawsuit resulting from a motor vehicle accident that occurred in the course of employment. Therefore, it is imperative that all aspects of your New York state workers’ compensation claim and motor vehicle accident lawsuit are considered together.
