Types of Construction Accidents How We Can Help You Pursue Compensation

Many construction accidents occur due to simple negligence. The type and cause of your injury determine the amount of compensation you are eligible to recover. Some accidents may implicate a third party, while others are handled through workers' compensation.

Third-Party Liability

Third-party liability refers to negligence by another, like the manufacturer of a product. Common third-party liability accidents include power tool accidents, heavy machinery accidents, and vehicle accidents. Third-party construction accident claims are typically handled like any other personal injury claim, allowing us to seek the compensation you probably will not receive from the insurance company.

Workers' Compensation

Workers' compensation applies if the injury was caused by the negligence of a construction worker's employer. In most construction accident cases, workers' compensation benefits are the sole source of financial restitution. Workers' compensation claim injuries can include unsafe premises, slip-and-fall accidents, scaffolding collapses, and ladder accidents. 

We Can Evaluate Your Case to Determine Liability

A thorough evaluation by our construction accident attorneys can help determine if a third party may be liable for your injury, or if you are limited to the benefits through your workers' compensation insurance company. The case may not always be black and white. For example, in a ladder accident, there may be grounds for a product liability claim against the ladder's manufacturer. This is one example of how hiring a personal injury lawyer can help you maximize compensation.

Establish Liability

You can seek damages from workers' compensation or a third party based on the cause of your injury. If it can be shown that a third party contributed to your construction site accident, we can explore a personal injury claim outside of workers' compensation. Our construction accident lawyers can use our network of experts in forensics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, accident reconstruction, manufacturing, and design to determine third-party liability.

Seek Damages

In a strict workers' compensation case, damages are typically limited to medical bills and a percentage of wages lost because of your injury. If the cause of your construction accident is due to a third party, our attorneys can pursue compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, future related medical expenses, loss of future wages, inhibited earning capacity, and intangibles like emotional and physical pain and suffering. If you suffered a permanently debilitating injury, we will work diligently to help ensure the damages awarded are sufficient to provide for a lifetime of care.
