Who Is Liable for Your Construction Accident Injuries?

Construction sites are busy places with many different parties constantly coming and going. Trying to determine who is liable for your injuries can be confusing, but it is crucial given the amount of monetary damages at stake. Here is a list of just a few of the people who may be liable for a construction site accident:

  • Subcontractors
  • General contractors
  • Product manufacturers
  • Architects
  • Engineers

Workers' Compensation and Personal Injury Claims

Typically, when a worker is injured on the job, the worker's only option for pursuing compensation is to file a workers' compensation claim. However, if someone other than your employer was responsible for the accident, a third party negligence claim (a personal injury claim) may be pursued.

In no other accident is it more common to have both workers' compensation and personal injury claims than in a construction accident. Forklift accidents, crane accidents and other types of construction accidents frequently involve more than one at-fault party. You may have the right to obtain both workers' compensation benefits and monetary damages through a personal injury claim. Our attorneys are capable of handling both of these types of claims — without referring one part of your claim off to another lawyer.
