Personal Injury Claims For Construction Accidents
Construction sites are dangerous places. Injuries are common. If you are hurt on a construction site, workers’ compensation is not your only option. You may be able to pursue a personal injury claim against third parties whose negligence contributed to your injury.
Having the option to pursue a third-party personal injury claim for a construction accident is important. Workers’ compensation is designed to cover medical costs and lost wages, but as many workers often discover, it is seldom enough to cover all expenses after a construction accident. The potential settlement or verdict from a third-party liability lawsuit could be greater than the benefits you are entitled to from a workers’ compensation claim.

How Third-Party Personal Injury Claims Work
Third-party personal injury claims are lawsuits against other people, businesses and entities that are on the construction site but do not necessarily work for your employer. Third parties are often equipment manufacturers, drivers, public utilities, outside vendors, contractors and individuals working as nonemployee supervisors or project managers. Poor oversight and defective safety equipment may result in:
- Scaffolding accidents
- Excavation accidents
- Falling objects
- Electrical injuries
- Ladder accidents
- Forklift accidents
We can help you determine if your injury claim is eligible for a third-party liability and if you would benefit from filing a lawsuit. We have assisted clients throughout the process and fought for their right to maximum compensation in a variety of situations.
