Construction Accident Lawyers Take on Third Party Claims
If you are hurt at work, you cannot sue your employer. They are legally required to provide you with Workers’ Compensation. When you are hurt at work and file for Workers’ Comp benefits, you will get medical treatment and replacement pay. You may also be entitled to a cash award depending on the extent of your injuries.
However, it is often the negligence of a third party, such as a cleaning company or the manufacturer of a faulty piece of equipment, that prompts the workplace injury.
Construction accidents are most commonly caused by:
- Scaffolding and crane collapses
- Falling construction materials or tools
- Ladder accidents or falls
- Falling from heights
- Fires or explosions
- Chemical exposure
- Cement burns
- Accidents with machinery
- Inadequate security (such as proper fencing)
- Trench collapses
- Run-over by operating equipment
- Hit by highway vehicle
