Third-Party and Workers' Comp Claims

Construction sites are responsible for approximately 20 percent of all worker fatalities, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. In addition to wrongful death, the dangerous nature of the construction industry causes accidents that can leave workers temporarily or permanently disabled or disfigured.

Injured construction workers may apply for workers' compensation benefits, which include medical coverage and wage replacement. Our attorneys can assist with workers' comp as well as third-party injury claims. We know how to fight for your rights and hold negligent employers and corporations liable.

Work Site Accidents and Injuries

There are countless hazards on construction sites. Some of the most frequent sources of injury and death include:

  • Falls from scaffolding, ladders and elevated heights
  • Crane and heavy equipment accidents
  • Fires and explosions
  • Electric shock and electrocution
  • Excavation, demolition and renovation accidents
  • Structural collapse
  • Work zone vehicle accidents

Because there are so many machines, tools, vehicles and employers on construction sites, it is not uncommon for an injury or wrongful death to be caused by a negligent third party. This may include:

  • Contractors and subcontractors
  • Manufacturers of defective tools, machinery, materials or safety equipment
  • Architects and engineers
  • Heavy equipment operators

When a third party is involved, we can file a separate lawsuit against it in addition to the workers' comp claim.

Workers hurt on construction sites may suffer traumatic injuries ranging from back and spinal cord injuries and fractures to severe brain injuries. Repetitive stress injuries to the back, legs, arms and joints are another common cause of worker injuries.
