The very nature of construction work promotes the likelihood that a work injury victim might have the right to sue for personal injury damages instead of or in addition to the right to collect workers’ compensation benefits. If you or someone in your family has suffered an accident at a construction site, contact the Law Offices of Ed Goldner & Associates and get a clear understanding of your legal alternatives. Unlike most workplace accidents, where the injured employee usually works for the company that owns the plant or warehouse where it occurred, few construction workers are actually employed by the owner of the project property, or even the general contractor.
On big projects, there might be dozens of independent contractors, with some following others in a work sequence, and others working at the same time. If the negligence of a different subcontractor or materials supplier resulted in your injury, you will normally have the right to sue that person or company for personal injury damages. These cover a wider range of losses than workers’ compensation does, so the ability to bring a personal injury lawsuit can represent a significant advantage for a construction accident victim.
Our law firm has advised and represented construction accident victims since 1991. Our attorneys’ experience with the proof of negligence claims and the documentation of severe injury expenses can help you recover the damages that you will need to support what might be a long period of medical treatment and convalescence.
