Construction Accidents

Construction sites are dangerous places to work, and most jurisdictions have special Labor Laws that protect the rights of construction workers that are injured on the job. If you were hurt in a workplace accident, you should be aware that construction accidents often involve liability on the part of one or more insured third parties,in addition to any benefits that are available through your employer’s Workers’ Comp insurance. Equipment manufacturers, property owners, general contractors, subcontractors, and equipment leasing companies may share in the liability for your injuries suffred at a construction site.

Workers injured in construction accidents are usually entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits, but those benefits can be very limited. Whether compensatory damages are also available depends on the often complex relationships between general contractor, subcontractors, equipment companies, and property owners on the work site. It is important to have an attorney that knows how to sort through those relationships, and find who is liable for the injury.
