Workers’ Compensation Claims And Personal Injury Claims
Injured construction workers often think that filing a workers’ compensation claim is their only source of recovery. While workers’ compensation is available to you, we have found that many construction accident cases involve substantial personal injury claims.
The nature of most construction sites is that there are many workers working under different employers. The general contractor oversees the project, but the workers are actually employed by a variety of subcontractors. If the construction accident was the result of negligence on the part of someone other than the victim’s employer, a personal injury claim may be filed. These are referred to as third-party claims, because they target a third party other than the employer or the victim. They may target a different subcontractor, the general contractor, the property owner or perhaps the manufacturer of a piece of equipment.
Information For Traveling Construction Workers
Many construction workers travel to work sites and stay overnight at hotels. When an accident occurs at the hotel, or in transit between the hotel and the work site, you may be eligible for compensation. We can help you review your options.
All personal injury cases are handled on a contingency basis. That means you are only required to pay if we are successful in getting you compensation.
