Transit Worker Claims Against The City For Construction Accident Injuries

A Transit Authority ("TA") employee who is injured on the job while working on a construction project will collect workers compensation, which disqualifies that employee from suing his/her employer. However, where there is a Labor Law violation, the TA employee has a claim against the landowner, which is the City, even though the City was not controlling the work. The City owns train stations as well as railroad tracks. Such a claim will include damages for pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, economic loss, and the spouse will have a claim for loss of services.
