    The most likely answer to your question is that you cannot bring a negligence case. The good news is that the New York State Workers' Compensation law is designed as a no- fault type of staute which generally provides an advantage to someone filing a claim as no negligence is required on behalf of the employer in order for you to receive benefits. . You may sue a third party if someone else was negligent and there may be some hope that you could sue somebody under ceretain exceptions in the construction law if they apply.

Perhaps you should consider consulting another attorney and starting a fresh and more confident relationship with.

    Based upon the facts which you have supplied, Company A is most likely the correct answer provided that Company A exerts supervision and control over you, pays you , and that you are a W-2 worker. The fact that Company B has hired Company A to do a job for them will in all likelihood prove irrelevant unless there are additional extraneous factors such as , for example, Company B supervising you. Based upon what you have supplied, Company A is the most likely correct answer.
