Construction Accident Claims and Lawsuits

Construction accident claims and lawsuits are a way for victims to receive justice and fair financial compensation after a workplace injury. The victim may receive medical treatment at no cost to them. They may access rehabilitation services and future medical care. In addition, the victim may receive replacement income if they are unable to work because of their injuries.

Common Causes of Construction Accidents

Construction sites are full of hazardous conditions that can result in injuries to construction workers or others on the premises. Here are the most common construction accidents that may qualify for compensation:

  • Falling objects and debris
  • Motor vehicle accidents (Learn more from our Denver car accident lawyers)
  • Slip and falls
  • Electric shock, fires and burns, explosions
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Hazardous materials exposure
  • Inhaling dust and harmful fumes
  • Poor training for workers
  • Not having enough workers
  • Neglecting to vet employees and determine qualifications appropriately
  • Ear injuries and hearing damage
  • Failing to wear personal protective equipment (PPE)

If you’ve suffered an injury due to one of these reasons, contact our experienced team of construction accident attorneys in Denver. We can help you fight for the financial relief you need and hold the responsible party accountable.

What Can I Receive in Workers’ Compensation for a Construction Accident?

Workers’ compensation for a construction accident may include:

  • Medical care
  • Replacement income (a percentage of lost wages)
  • Temporary disability payments
  • Permanent disability compensation
  • Vocational rehabilitation

To receive paid medical care, you may need to get treatment from an approved provider. Be sure to carefully review the information provided to ensure you receive the benefits that you deserve.

However, if your claim is a third-party claim, you may also qualify to receive compensation for pain and suffering, mental anguish and other non-economic damages. Contact our construction accident lawyers to learn more. We will fully value your case to claim the maximum compensation available to you under the law.

Why Work With a Construction Accident Lawyer?

What you say and do after an accident can significantly impact the outcome of your case. Even things that you say unintentionally may be taken out of context for the responsible parties to avoid payment. Plus, there may be multiple avenues of compensation available to you. It can be hard to know what path to pursue.

A construction accident case may be any of the following types of legal claims:

  • Workers’ compensation – Workers’ compensation is an insurance system. By requiring employers to have insurance, payments should be readily available to injured workers without proving the employer is at fault for the accident. Compensation may include lost income and paid medical care, including rehabilitation efforts. Work with our workers’ compensation lawyers to ensure your claim is handled correctly.
  • Third-party negligence claim – Construction sites often involve many parties. With contractors, subcontractors and a host of suppliers involved, a third party may have a legal liability to the victim through negligence. If another person or party commits an act of negligence that causes the accident and the injury, the victim may pursue compensation for non-economic damages like pain and suffering.
  • Product liability claim – Sometimes, construction accidents happen because of dangerous and malfunctioning products. A product liability attorney can help you examine possible causes for an accident, including whether any party may be held legally liable for a defective product.
