Have you been injured while working on a construction site or while visiting a construction site? Often, construction site injury victims believe that workers’ compensation is the only recourse for construction site injuries. Workers’ compensation claims, however, are sometimes just the first step in an injured workers’ pursuit of full compensation for their injuries.
Though workers’ compensation claims can cover medical expenses and can partially cover lost wages, third party claims most often provide far more compensation. Third party claims are against someone other than a co-worker of your employer. In construction accidents, negligent third parties could potentially include subcontractors, vendors, or manufacturers of defective equipment. Third party claims are more like “regular” lawsuits and can yield awards for:
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished quality of life
- Diminished earning capacity
- Has handled hundreds of personal injury claims
