Third-Party Negligence in Construction and Work Accident Claims
Attorney Joleen K. Youngers pursues any possible personal injury claims against negligent third parties. This can be quite common in construction and dangerous work activities. An equipment failure, a trench collapse, a failure to use safety devices or an improper inspection of work conditions may result in serious injury that falls outside the limited relief offered by worker’s compensation. In these instances, a personal injury lawsuit can be made against the responsible third party.
Construction Accidents and Subcontractor Negligence
Construction accidents can involve multiple parties. From the hiring company to the general contractor, subcontractors and equipment owners, there are many possible third parties other than the employer. Commonly, subcontractor negligence is a part of this. Even though you may be employed by the general contractor, if a work-related accident occurs and the subcontractor is negligent, then you may have a third-party personal injury claim.
Attorney Youngers and her staff will help you seek full and fair compensation for:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost earnings
- Loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional damage
If a loved one has died as a result of their injuries, then the firm’s lawyer can file a wrongful death claim on that person’s behalf. While nothing can ever replace a loved one, she can seek justice by holding negligent parties responsible.
