These serious lifting injuries could cause long-term problems, pain, and suffering not to mention financial losses. It is important to take precautions to prevent these types of injuries. However, if you were unfortunate to suffer a personal injury as a result of a workplace heavy lifting accident by someone other than your employer, you will find it helpful to file a third-party worker’s compensation claim!
If you are a construction worker, manufacturer, or a laborer and got injured while heavy lifting objects and got personally injured some point during work by someone outside of your employer, you are legally entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. In New York State, all employers are legally obligated to personal injury insurance which has your back covered in case of a heavy lifting accident. These benefits may include, but are not limited to the following:

Furthermore, when you are assessing the relationship between workers’ compensation and third-party claims, it can be complex and the circumstances in your case could differ.
