Your Options After A Construction Site Accident
After a construction accident, the employer typically refers the injured person to workers’ compensation. However, workers’ compensation benefits are limited and do not provide compensation for damages such as pain and suffering.
In some cases, you have an option beyond workers’ compensation. While employers are generally protected from being sued by employees for injuries suffered on the job, there are exceptions:
- If the accident was caused by extreme employer negligence, you may have the right to sue your employer.
- If the accident was caused by a third party (someone other than you or your employer), you may have the right to sue that person or company. Examples of third parties are subcontractors, equipment manufacturers and the property owner.
We offer a free case evaluation to determine if you may be entitled to compensation beyond workers’ compensation in your construction site injury case.
