Construction work, by nature, is hazardous. Operating heavy machinery, working in deep trenches well below ground level, or working while hoisted on scaffolding several stories high are all part of the job of a construction worker. Serious risk of injury is inherent in this work and that is why the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), a division of the Department of Labor, establishes safety standards for construction work. But in spite of those safety standards, construction injuries are a regular occurrence.

Legal deadlines for filing claims in the civil courts are known as “statutes of limitations”. In New York, the statute of limitations for filing a workers’ compensation claim is two years from the date the workplace injury occurred, or two years from the last payment of compensation, whichever is later. Except in rare circumstances, if you do not file your construction accident claim before this two-year window runs out, the court will refuse to hear your case and you will have lost your opportunity to recover any compensation for your injuries.
Workers’ compensation laws provide that employers may not fire, punish, or in any way retaliate against any employee who files a workers’ compensation claim. When you file a workers’ compensation claim, you relinquish the right to file a lawsuit against your employer or any of your co-workers for any additional compensation.
