Construction Workers Injuries

Construction sites can be hazardous work environments. Even when safety is made the highest priority, accidents can happen, leaving workers seriously injured. Many times, these injuries can prevent construction workers from returning to work and earning an income. Even for those who make a full recovery, issues of medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering can have a lasting impact on their lives.

If you have been injured in a construction accident, it is important to understand that you have a legal right to seek compensation through your employer's benefit plan or nonsubscriber insurance. You may also be able to bring a personal injury claim against any negligent third party. But these legal matters are highly complex and should not be undertaken without the help of an experienced workplace injury attorney.

Construction Accidents And Third-Party Liability Claims

Many construction site accidents are not the result of employer negligence. And they are not the result of negligence on behalf of a co-worker. Instead, these accidents are caused by the actions of a third party not affiliated with your company, such as a contractor, subcontractor or delivery truck driver.

In these instances, we will not sue your employer. Instead, we will file what is called a third-party liability claim against the responsible party and his/her employer. These cases can be highly complex because they may involve multiple areas of the law, including personal injury laws, OSHA laws, workers' compensation issues and third-party liability laws. However, our lawyers are more than competent to handle these cases. We have extensive experience in third-party liability claims and a track record of success in securing fair compensation for our clients.
