Third Party Claims

If you were injured on the job, Tiernan & Krug can pursue your New York workers’ compensation claim and then help you pursue additional compensation through a third-party claim, when the facts of the case permit.

Third-party claims:

  • Are like “regular” lawsuits, with no financial limits and typically exceeding workers’ compensation benefits in value.
  • Can be filed against owners, subcontractors, contractors and other negligent parties (but usually not your employer.)
  • Require the help of an experienced attorney.
  • We have handled numerous third-party personal injury claims for injured construction workers and other employees throughout New York State. We have helped injured office workers, roadway workers, retail workers and others with third-party claims after accidents at work.
