The Reliable Legal Assistance You Need After A Construction Site Accident
Construction site accidents are often severe due to the nature of the job. In addition, the presence of various contractors at the worksite makes it challenging to determine who was the party liable for the accident.

We Strive To Maximize Your Compensation
Each personal injury case is different, and all details should be carefully examined and evaluated. After discussing your matter and reviewing the evidence available, we provide a fair assessment of the facts and circumstances of your accident and recommend further legal action.
Initially, as a worker injured on the job, you are entitled to workers’ compensation. This is a benefit given by employers to cover medical bills, lost wages and any other reasonable cost incurred by a worker after an accident. Beyond that, however, you may also be entitled to recover compensation from other parties who were responsible for your injuries, including general contractors, manufacturers, property owners and other third parties.
Workers’ Compensation And The Possibility Of Additional Compensation
When you receive workers’ compensation, you may not be able to sue your employer. However, if a third party’s negligence led to your accident, you may file a personal injury lawsuit against said individual or institution.
Some examples of situations where third-party liability could apply and give rise to a personal injury case include:
- Accidents involving heavy equipment or vehicles
- Scaffolding collapses and other failures
- Hazards like electrical, fire and explosions
- Negligence causing the collapse of buildings or ceilings
- Providing defective tools, equipment or personal protective equipment (PPE)
