A third party in a construction site can be the owner of the property, a contractor, a sub-contractor, or even an equipment manufacturer.

If your injury occurred on a construction site in the New York City area, including the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island, Westchester, Nassau, or Suffolk areas, you need the help of a construction site attorney Jay S. Knispel.

In most cases, New York State law does not allow for construction workers who have been injured on the job site to sue their employers, but there are oftentimes other parties responsible for the safety of a construction site, and those are called “third parties.”

By law, an injured construction worker may file suit against a third party if it is shown that the injury was related to an act or lack of action by the responsible third party.  Third parties responsible for construction site accidents can be:

  • General Contractors
  • Sub-Contractors
  • Land or Building Owners
  • Equipment Manufacturers

Types of Accidents

A construction site is a busy place, and there are several different parties responsible for various parts of the job so that the actual construction can take place.

There may be an owner of the property or building, a general contractor, a sub-contractor, a landlord, a managing agent, a superintendent, or any combination thereof.  Every party involved in the construction site may have some responsibility for the safety of the employees working on the site.

Workers’ compensation may cover some of your lost wages or medical bills, but if there was negligence on the part of anyone that caused your injury, it is your right to file suit and recover damages.  Construction accidents can happen in many different ways:
