Construction accident claims fall into three major categories: workers compensation, third-party negligence, and defective product liability.
Workers compensation construction accident claims
When you’re hurt while working on a construction site, you can usually bring a workers compensation claim. The claim is based on the fact that you were working at the time of the accident. Workers compensation claims are meant to be a simplified way to get the help that you need when you’re hurt in the course of your employment. You don’t have to show the employer that you did anything wrong. You just have to document that you got hurt while working.
Even though it might seem like a workers compensation construction accident claim is simple, it can actually be quite complex. A victim has the right to have their medical care covered up to the maximum level of medical improvement. They deserve pay based on their work history if the injury prevents them from working. Loss of use payments may be involved. All of this can become complex when it comes to getting the compensation that you deserve. Our attorneys can help you ensure that you don’t miss out on any payment for your construction accident injuries.
Third-party negligence lawsuit for a construction accident
Many construction accident claims qualify for third-party negligence lawsuits. Think of all of the people who may be involved at a construction site. You might interact directly and indirectly with any of these people:
- General contractors
- A government representative
- Site owners
There are also companies that manufacture the machines that you use on site. Yet another company makes the personal protective equipment that you use while you work. Any party that is involved in the construction site may be responsible for negligence.
If any of these groups acts negligently in a way that causes an injury, they may be legally liable to you for a range of damages. You have the same rights towards third parties as all accident victims; your legal rights are no less just because you’re working at the time of the accident. A claim may be based on negligence against these third parties. This type of action may result in a wider class of damages than a victim can claim through workers compensation.
Defective product construction injury claim
A construction injury claim can be based on a defective product. Think of the products that you use in construction. You work with machinery, tools, personal protective equipment and materials. The companies that make these products have an obligation to make things that are safe. Errors in manufacturing and design can create legal liability to these companies.
Even a failure to warn about how to use a product safely can be a grounds for legal liability. When you’re hurt in a construction accident, you may not know the immediate cause of the accident. That’s why our attorneys help you investigate and gather the facts to back up your claim.
"Corey and Ashley were very professional, communicative, and knowledgeable about every step of the case. We were hit by a drunk driver and didn't know what the next step was to seek medical attention in a way that wasn't a major expense to us. The attorneys here are super caring and got us a decent amount of money after paying off our treatment. I hope to never have to call a personal injury attorney but if I do it will be them." - Eric M 5/5 Stars
