Compensation For Injured Construction Workers
Construction sites are a hotbed for potential hazards. When working with and around heavy machinery and dangerous tools, and from extreme heights, it is no surprise that serious injuries and even death are a common occurrence on construction sites.
If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed while working at a construction site, you have a right to seek compensation for your unpaid medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages. While the workers’ compensation system will provide you with immediate financial relief, if another party was responsible for your injuries, you may also file a claim against a third party. At Connell & Foresta, our lawyer will pursue every avenue of potential compensation to ensure that you get the financial support you need.
Exploring Every Avenue Of Compensation
Personal injury claims arising from construction site accidents can be quite complex. Numerous parties may be responsible for your injuries, including the general contractor, subcontractor, electrician, products manufacturer and anyone else who is present at the work site such as a driver or delivery person.
While some law firms may only look to the most obvious source of compensation, our attorney will complete a thorough investigation into your accident to determine all of the potential sources of compensation. We will not rush to a settlement because we know that it takes time to calculate the full scope and cost of your accident.
Our lawyer understands the connection between workers’ compensation and third-party injury liability claims. We will structure a settlement that ensures you do not lose access to any sources of compensation. Our goal is to help you obtain a settlement that will meet your current and future needs.
