Injured On A Construction Site?

As a construction worker, you accept that your line of work subjects you to many risks for serious injury – more, perhaps, than most other jobs. That hasn’t stopped you from working hard and with pride. Once you’ve been injured on the job, however, you need compensation to make sure you can continue to provide for yourself and your family. You need an experienced lawyer to help you get every dollar of compensation you’ve earned for the hard work you’ve done. That’s where our firm comes in.

Decades Of Combined Legal Experience

Our lawyers work with people dealing with the aftermath of serious injuries every day. We know from more than 80 years of combined experience that serious accidents do more than make the doctor’s bills pile up. They can mean being out of work for weeks or months at a time and possibly being unable to return to the same job at all. They can also mean missing out on spending time with family and loved ones and dealing with pain that lingers for years or even the rest of one’s life.

Dealing With Workers’ Compensation Insurance

Workers’ compensation insurance is a type of insurance. It has all the complex rules that make dealing with any insurance company difficult. If you were injured on a construction site, workers’ compensation benefits may not fully compensate for your for your financial losses.

Our legal team works to maximizing your workers’ comp claim and ensure that it is filed timely, is done correctly and that it includes all injuries resulting from the incident. We can also determine if there was someone other than your direct employer (a “third party”) whose careless actions led to your accident. Examples of this might include:

  • Negligence by employees of another contractor
  • Exposure to toxic materials
  • Defective machinery and other products
  • Motor vehicle accidents involving noncompany vehicles

If a third party’s carelessness contributed to the accident that caused your injuries, we may be able to pursue a legal claim above and beyond your workers’ comp claim. Doing so may make it possible for you to obtain additional compensation for:

  • Medical costs that exceed your disability benefits
  • Lost wages and lowered earning potential
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
