Workers injured in construction or factory settings can recover damages for personal injury or death if an accident was caused by a third party who is not the injured person’s employer. For example, a carpenter who is injured because of defective scaffolding erected by another contractor may sue for negligence. Recoverable damages include medical bills, wage loss, and pain and suffering.
Construction injury cases usually involve understanding the complex interplay between the workers’ compensation system and personal injury law. We have deep knowledge of this interplay based on our experience handling numerous construction accident cases over the years.
These cases also typically require several different types of experts in areas such as construction safety, medicine, vocational rehabilitation, and economics. We have extensive experience in this area and know which experts to retain on your behalf to prepare the case for maximum settlement or a successful jury trial.
