If you are a union construction worker who was injured on the job, the New York union worker accident attorneys at Block O'Toole & Murphy can help. We will carefully examine your union contract and advise you of any additional rights, benefits and protections it may provide. For example, depending on the terms of your contract, you may be entitled to a disability pension or a restoration of sick and vacation time. Some labor unions may also provide special assistance to injured union members, such as help with investigating the accident that caused your injuries. We will also advise you whether a potential lawsuit exists in addition to workers' compensation.
You May Recover Additional Money Through a Third-Party Claim
When union workers are catastrophically injured on construction sites, workers' compensation is only part of their ability to recover. Many injured union workers are also eligible to recover monetary compensation through a "third-party claim" or lawsuit.
You should consult with an experienced construction accident law firm immediately to know whether you have the right to commence a third-party claim. At Block O'Toole & Murphy, we may be able to help you receive maximum compensation for your injury.
