Under New York State's Workman's Compensation Law (specifically the Omnibus Workman's Compensation Reform Act of 1997) as long as an employer provides workman's compensation insurance for its employees, the employer is immune to suit by an employee for personal injuries sustained in the course of employment which, are redressable only through the workman's compensation insurance. However, if workman's compensation coverage is not available, the employer is not immune from personal injury lawsuits by its employees. Also, in a case like this if the parking is owned or maintained by an entity other than the employer, such as the owner of an office building shared by multiple tenants, an employee may have a cause of action against that party for personal injuries.
As always, should you wish to discuss this matter in further detail, please feel free to contact me directly. Also, please remember that the foregoing is not intended as specific legal advice. It is merely an overview of some of the relevant aspects of New York law regarding personal injuries and/or medical malpractice. It is not intended and should not be relied upon to create an attorney client relationship and should not be acted upon without further consultation with myself or another licensed attorney.
