Despite the fact there are many state and federal regulations to govern work place safety, construction sites can often be a hazardous work environment. Each year, thousands of workers are killed or seriously injured working at construction sites.
Although most are aware that workers’ compensation provides initial benefits and compensation for a work site injury, a separate claim can be pursued if the injury was caused by the fault of someone who is not the injured individual’s direct employer or co-employee. For example, injuries caused by a general contractor’s failure to ensure that safety regulations are followed, or injuries caused by the fault of a subcontractor, can be the basis of such a claim. An injured individual has specific rights and is often entitled to greater compensation in claims against a negligent third party than is available under the workers’ compensation system.
If you, a friend or a family member have been injured at a work site due to the fault of someone who is not your employer, it is important to know your rights and the available remedies to obtain compensation for your injuries. We have been helping injured workers recover against third parties and general contractors for 30 years.
