Were You Hurt On A Construction Site?

While most construction workers may be aware of the help they can get through the workers' compensation system, not all are aware that, depending on who caused your injuries, you may also be able to pursue compensation outside of workers' compensation through what is called a third-party claim.

What Is A Third-Party Claim?

Many on-the-job accidents were caused by the injured worker, fellow employees or conditions that were under the control of the employer. Those types of cases are taken care of through workers' compensation. But, when the cause of the accident is an outside party such as a subcontractor or another driver who causes an accident while you are driving for work, you can sue that party for compensation beyond your workers' compensation benefits. We focus on helping injured workers with these third-party claims for injuries such as:

  • Scaffolding and ladder accidents
  • Trip-and-fall accidents
  • Being struck by dropped debris/materials/objects
  • Trench accidents
  • Crane accidents
  • Heavy machinery accidents
  • Power tool accidents
  • Electrocution

Is Your Immigration Status Stopping You From Pursuing Your Rights?

Your immigration status is not an impediment to your ability to be compensated for work-related injuries. If you have concerns about your immigration status and how it could impact your ability to be compensated for a work-related injury, we offer free confidential initial consultations.
