New York law provides workers with the right to seek compensation for work-related injuries and illnesses. Although the law prohibits workers from suing their employer in this situation, it may be possible to file a personal injury claim in civil court against a third party. Frequently, these third-party claims related to work injuries result from dangerous or defective products.
Workers in any industry, whether construction, manufacturing, transportation or service, use a wide variety of products to perform their various job functions. These products include heavy equipment and machinery, power tools and even motor vehicles. Product-related work injuries may result from faulty manufacturing, defective design or a failure to warn of any reasonable danger that may result with expected product use.
While workers are often injured by defective tools, machinery, and equipment, they can also be hurt by safety equipment or clothing that fails to function properly. They may also be harmed by exposure to hazardous chemicals and materials.
