Q:
Can I sue my employer in NY for the personal injuries I suffered while working on a construction job site?

A:
If you received Workers' Compensation benefits, you cannot directly sue your employer for your work-related injuries unless you suffered one of the 11 categories of "grave injury" set forth in the Workers' Compensation Law. A further discussion of this topic can be found in our article Construction Site Injuries and New York's Labor Laws.
