If you have been injured in a construction accident, you may have several options for pursuing recovery of your damages. It is important to confer with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney to understand what options are available depending upon the nature of your accident. Consider the following examples:
· If you were a pedestrian passing by a construction site and you were injured, you may be entitled to file a personal injury claim against the contractor as well as other parties.
· If you are a construction worker who was hurt on the job, you may be able to file a workers’ compensation claim to recover your lost wages and medical benefits.
· If a third-party’s negligence caused your injury at the work site, you can file a third-party claim. For instance, if a defective piece of equipment caused your injury, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the device. There are many third parties on construction sites that may have liability such as installers, demolition crews, subcontractors, and others.
If you have a loved one that was killed on a construction site, you might be eligible to recover death benefits. In fact, you may have a variety of claims to pursue, depending upon the circumstances surrounding your loved one’s accident. We will explore your ability to pursue workers’ compensation death benefits, file a wrongful death claim against a third-party, and Social Security benefits.
