Construction Accidents

Construction can be hazardous work. If this work is not done safely, it can cause serious harm.

Common construction site injuries include:

If you or a loved one is injured in a construction accident, you may be entitled not only to Workers’ Compensation benefits but also have the right to file a “third party” claim.

“Third party” liability includes a person or company who is not your employer.  Often, third parties include general or sub-contractor, the manufacturer of defective or unsafe construction equipment, or any other type of third party who contributed to the injury because of misconduct or negligence. For these reasons, it is in your best interest to have an attorney or law firm representing you, allowing them to handle all aspects of your construction accident case.

Construction workers are entitled to receive Workers’ Compensation benefits.  Payment of Workers’ Compensation benefits is the employer’s responsibility. When a third party other than the employer is legally responsible, the injured worker can sue that third party for full damages. The Workers’ Compensation process is complex; therefore, it is in the best interest of an injured construction worker to hire an experienced and qualified Workers’ Compensation lawyer.
