Seeking Maximum Compensation for the Catastrophically Injured
Construction workers often work with heavy machinery in dangerous situations, heightening the risk of serious accidents, injuries, and fatalities. Many injuries sustained on construction sites are life altering, such as spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, and serious burn injuries.
In severe cases, injured construction workers can suffer from an injury requiring surgery, amputation, or blindness. These injuries can cost tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills, causing devastating financial difficulty for victims and families. Our firm is here to help injury victims get the compensation they need to cover these costs and alleviate as much stress as possible.

Claims of Negligence
Workers who are hurt on the job are entitled to receive workers' compensation benefits through their employer. However, many injured workers do not realize that they may also be able to pursue compensation through a third party, other than their employer.
What Third Parties Could Be Held Liable?
The most common type of construction accident lawsuit we see is actually against a third party, or someone other than an employer.
These parties include:
- General and subcontractors - If a general contractor or subcontractor neglects to inform you of any job hazards or overlooked any serious safety concerns, you may have a case against them.
- Construction Site Owner/Owners - For a construction site owner to be held liable, the following questions must be considered: How much control did they have over the premises? How much control did they have over the work being executed?
- Manufacturers - If a product is defective, anyone along the chain of distribution could be held accountable.
- Architects and Engineers - Depending on the circumstances, architects and/or engineers can be expected to ensure code compliance and other regulations.
- Prime Contractors - Prime contractors may hold some responsibility for subcontractors.
