Filing A Third-Party Lawsuit After A Construction Accident
Construction sites are dangerous, and workers often rely on workers’ compensation to help them after an accident at work. However, if your accident was caused by someone other than a coworker or employer, it may be possible to supplement that compensation through a personal injury claim against the person or company whose negligence contributed to that accident. It takes an experienced attorney to help you navigate both personal injury and workers’ compensation claims and get you the full and fair compensation you deserve.
At , we are dedicated to helping maximize the benefits you can receive so that you can maximize your recovery. We assist clients in the Los Angeles area with a variety of different personal injury and workers’ compensation claims, and we will explore every possible option to achieve the best results for you.
Building Both Cases To Support Your Recovery
Construction sites often feature workers from a variety of different companies. Drivers delivering supplies, workers employed by other companies working on the same site, and many others could be involved in your work and, as a result, your accident. Your third-party claim might involve:
- Manufacturers – If your injury was caused by a faulty tool, incorrectly manufactured safety equipment or other faulty product, you could hold the manufacturer accountable for their part in your accident.
- Subcontractors from other companies – Your construction site may have had workers from several different companies working at once. If an employee from another company or the general contractor for the site was negligent and caused your accident, you could pursue a third-party claim against them.
- Negligent property owners – If you are working on a property that hasn’t been properly maintained, the owners of that property could be partially responsible for your accident.
Navigating both a third-party claim and your workers’ compensation claim can be complex, especially because you are working to recover from your injuries during this time. At , we have years of experience protecting injury victims in both workers’ compensation and personal injury claims, giving us the extensive knowledge necessary to navigate both claims and to get you the financial support you need during your recovery.
