Third-Party Negligence in Construction and Work Accident Claims
The construction and work accident attorneys at our firm can look beyond workers’ compensation. We pursue any possible personal injury claims against negligent third-parties. This can be quite common in construction and dangerous work activities. Many times an equipment failure, trench collapse, failure to use safety devices or improper inspection of work conditions is due to a negligent third party. In these instances, a personal injury lawsuit can be made against the third-party in addition to any workers’ compensation against the employer.
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 your 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, you likely have a third-party personal injury claim.
We will 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 his or her injuries, we can file a wrongful death claim on that person’s behalf. While nothing can ever replace a loved one, we can seek justice by holding negligent parties responsible.
