Looking Out For Injured Construction Workers
Construction sites are notoriously hazardous work environments. When injuries happen, they are often severe. These injuries present many challenges. Construction workers are faced with an uncertain future. They face the worry of whether a full recovery is possible and how will they support their family.
Injured workers may have two potential sources of compensation to help them. The first is to pursue a workers’ compensation claim through an employer. Additional money, however may be available if a third party was also responsible for an injury. Finding out whether this is possible is not always easy.
Injured construction workers often benefit from having a knowledgeable attorney on their side to investigate their claim and to protect their interests. There are a number of ways that work injury claims can be processed that can affect the amount of compensation that is awarded. An experienced attorney will know what to look for and what steps to take to pursue fair compensation on behalf of the worker.

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.
