Must Know Info: Third Party Claims

In a new article, attorney Michael Rose discusses how, in some workplace injury cases, it is possible for the injured person to hold a third party accountable for their injuries.

Filing for workers’ compensation benefits excludes you from suing your employer most of the time. However, if it can be shown that a third party, an entity that is separate from your employer, was negligent, that party can be held liable for your injuries as well. This can make a dramatic difference in the amount of compensation available to an injured worker.

What are some common OSHA violations?

Regulations set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA) are meant to keep workers in New York safe from employer negligence and unsafe working conditions. This is critical protection for the workers that make up the backbone of the U.S. economy. Unfortunately, many companies every year put their employees at risk of injury by violating OHSA regulations. The most common OSHA violations include citations involving:

  • Fall protection
  • Hazard communication
  • Scaffolding
  • Respiratory protection
  • Electrical

All workers should be protected from preventable hazards. This means that employers need to follow all OHSA regulations, or they leave themselves vulnerable to legal action. If you have suffered a workplace injury you believe was the result of your employer committing an OSHA violation, the lawyers at Hach & Rose, LLP, are prepared to advocate for you. Call our offices at (212) 779-0057 today to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer in New York about your case.


Injuries to Elevator Workers

Individuals who work on elevators and in elevator shafts for a living are regularly exposed to a number of hazards while on the job. While there are a number of laws and safety regulations that are meant to keep working environments safe for these individuals, the sad reality is that in far too many instances, these regulations are not followed or upheld, resulting in dangerous working conditions and serious injuries. While it may be possible for injured workers to pursue workers’ compensation benefits to cover the costs of their injuries, unfortunately, this amount of compensation may not be enough to cover a victim’s full range of financial needs. In these situations, an injured worker may be able to file a personal injury claim to pursue the full compensation they need.
