Construction Zone Car Accident Lawyer in NYC

Construction workers who do their jobs in close proximity to traffic face a daily risk of being struck by a car. Since the construction worker is unprotected, car accidents often result in catastrophic or fatal injuries.

At The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny in Manhattan, our attorneys represent workers, including undocumented workers, who are injured in motor vehicle accidents in the New York City area. Call (212) 421-0300 for a free initial consultation.

Your Legal Options Following A Car Accident in a Construction Zone

New York workers’ compensation is designed to provide wage loss and medical care benefits to workers who are injured on the job. Workers’ compensation also provides death benefits to family members for fatal car accidents that occur on the job. Workers’ compensation benefits are limited, however.

If the accident was caused by the negligence of another party, our lawyers can help you obtain additional compensation by filing a civil personal injury or wrongful death suit on your behalf. Here are a few examples of negligence that can create liability for your employer or the driver:

  • Exceeding the speed limit in a construction zone
  • Improper signage
  • Lack of protective barriers for workers
  • Distracted driving or other types of driver negligence

What If I Was Driving At The Time Of The Accident?

If you were driving in the course of your employment, you would be entitled to workers’ compensation regardless of who was at fault. If another driver was at fault, you could also file a civil claim.

If you were driving to or from work, you can still pursue a civil claim against the other driver if he or she were at fault. However, you would not be entitled to workers’ compensation.
