Commentary on Construction Truck Accident on Ardmore in Forest Hills
People tend to overlook work accidents like this because the assumption is just that workers' comp is going to handle everything. In fact, that's usually the only recourse people have given the restrictive nature of that particular system. What could make things complex, however, is the possible involvement of separate companies. In many scenarios, if a worker from one company screws up and injures someone working for another company, then the typical workers' comp restrictions may not apply, since those generally address issues between workers and their employers. Could it be that there are additional steps that can be taken to get this woman the help she deserves?
