What should I do after being injured in a construction accident?
One of the types of personal injury cases that we handle regularly is construction site accidents. Our firm is particularly well-suited to handle those cases because we regularly handle a great many workers’ compensation cases, and there is a lot of interplay between personal injury cases – whether you can sue a contractor on a job site or even a party that you consider to be your employer – and workers’ compensation.
These cases can be complicated. Just to give you some examples of how complicated these cases can be, the general contractor who may have been negligent in some way and caused your injury, could be shielded from you being able to sue them by the workers’ compensation laws of the state, even though they’re not responsible for paying you any workers’ compensation benefits.
There are exceptions to them being able to gain that statutory employer status. Our firm is well-versed in these exceptions from years of handling workers’ compensation claims. We are able to form some strategies now based on experience and insight into how a particular party is going to react if, say, a workers’ compensation claim is filed against them.
